You Capture - Letters

Wednesday, April 23

This weeks You Capture photo challenge over at I Should Be Folding Laundry was 'Letters'. This was kind of a hard one, but I came up with a few different angles. The now 5 year old Sydney helped me with this one. Hubby was glad that spelling out "Lazy Husband" was just too many letters!

Here are some letters I see every now and then on the street outside my house. You can see them better after it rains. Why do kids graffiti using their own names? Looking at this, Justin doesn't seem too bright.

Here is my 8 year old just back from the library planning to read a lot of letters in a row.
Here is the 5 year old, right after she woke up from a fever induced nap (see the messy hair) and declared, "I need to do some homework!" Poor thing, she doesn't even have homework, but I gave her some anyway. Let's hear it for the letter G.
I can't believe I got this shot. The postal carrier is very fast I tell you. This was taken through my peep hole and I didn't have time to center the shot, but I got him just before he delivered my letter to the box.

To see some other great letter pics go here.

Really great shots! The first one looks like it could be a poster :) Also, your 8 year old reads some impressively thick books and your 5 year old is a fantastic printer, even with a fever!

What a nice variety of letter pictures. The dandelions are such a nice contrast to your dark green grass. Your daughters' pictures really epitomize the importance of letters and your mail carrier picture is an incredible capture.
