May Inspiration Day - Dallas Museum of Art

Last week, Ellyn and I headed into Dallas for another Inspiration Day, this time to visit the Dallas Museum of Art.

There were, of course, the usual reflections photos.

However, Ellyn's shadow photo was much harder to capture with only a gray sky and museum lighting to work. But we were determined to find the right spot, and Ellyn finally captured this shot.

After noticing the letter "A" in this barricade, Ellyn suggested trying to find letters in various objects to create words.

It sounded like fun, but in reality was more difficult than I originally thought. My favorite find was this "S".

And I was able to put together a few of my "letters" to form a word.

Have you tried ever tried photographing "letters" in objects? Did you find it challenging?

oh I haven't done a letter search for several years - thanks for the reminder. 3 years ago a group of us each hunted for the letters of our own name - hard but fun and makes you look at things differently. Love your 'love'

Looks like a fun adventure! I have never really looked for letters to photograph, but what a cool idea. Will put this on the list of "to do one day"! :)

At last a little time to catch up with some blogs - sorry I've been MIA!
I love the idea of photographing "letters" - I've seen some gorgeous wall-art names featuring them.
