The Personal Photo Challenge for March at Donna's blog is 'words and letters'. It was a tricky challenge and I had difficulty finding photos with words and letters (and numbers?) in my files. These are all taken in 2012 except for the 3rd one which I took today. I just haven't been out much to take pictures of signs and such due to the very cold weather and, editing one's photos to do something unique is a challenge I wasn't up to so here are my choices.
This photo above was taken in New York City in 2012. I'm not sure what the workers were doing. Were they painting over the advertisement or putting it up? This was at the top of a very high building and it fascinated me to see them on the scaffolding working away. There aren't many words in this photo but the price was right. :)
Taken with my point and shoot Canon set on auto and zoomed as far as I could. I edited it a bit to brighten the colour and lighting.
This is a landmark barn on the highway to Sussex, NB. The 'Buy Apples/Stirling's' sign has been on there for a lot of years. The other signs are newer. Taken December 2012 with my Canon point and shoot. I edited it with 'vignette' in Picasa.
Some family history in this photo. This is taken from a page in a leather book which has some of the family tree written in longhand with a fountain pen. I love the script, the dirt marks on the paper, the care taken in writing, and drawing the lines with a ruler. This was probably written in the late 1800's or early 1900's. There was a 'knight' in the family tree way back when. :)
I took the photo today with my Nikon D5200 settings -
1/125s, f/5.6, ISO 800. I edited it in Picasa to brighten it a bit.
This is one of the last old neon signs in Fredericton. This market has been a fixture on King St. in the downtown for many decades. It's a classic. You can buy anything from meat to batteries today (my sister bought batteries that day)
Photo taken with my Canon point and shoot on auto. No edits.
I hope you will join us or visit Donna's blog and see what the other participants have shared.
Enjoy the weekend!
