This weeks weekly photo challenge is letters
“For this week’s challenge, share a photo with letters — no matter the alphabet. You can capture a neon sign, a sentence scribbled in an old phone booth, a random letter that’s seemingly out of place, or anything else. As you look through your lens, think about how your image might convey something bigger: a snapshot of how we communicate with one another, even if we don’t speak the same language. ”
I’ve just started reading “The Disappearing Spoon” by Sam Kean. It is a book about the elements and the periodic table.
As Kean says “the coordinates of an element determine nearly everything scientifically interesting about it. For each element, its geography is its destiny”.
If you understand it (I don’t) the letters on the periodic table are like any other language – you draw information and understanding from their order – how they fit together and how they interact.
This photo is my first real attempt at staged, “still life” style photography
