Friday Finds/A

 Celebrate (reflection in store window)

Teresa at Eden Hills is starting a new weekend meme called Friday Finds, which she will open this evening at 7pm central time.

This week's prompts: Starts with the letter A, Week's Favourite (activity or image) and Celebrate.


Looks like an A

Yep, I'm cheating. I'm collecting a file of alphabetography - photos of items that look like letters. To me the orange stand looks like the letter A.

 Week's Favourite (and a second reflection)

The Town of Whitby has been repairing and upgrading their pier on Lake Ontario for what seems like forever. Finally the barriers have opened up and pedestrians can walk out to the lighthouse. Sometimes ducks swim in quite close creating super photo ops!

Happy new year 2016! A new beginning, letter A to start with.

I love the idea of alphabetography! That sounds like it should be a meme in itself. Let me know if you start it!


Happy New Year! Here's to another great year with the City Daily Photo community.

Wow! Alphabetography! That's a great idea and your "A" is terrific. I look forward to seeing more. Especially like your last shot. Happy new year!

Ruth Hiebert said...

Great photos.I can see where being on that pier could give some amazing shots.

edenhills said...

Thanks so much for joining in. That first shot is wonderful! I love that idea of finding the alphabet. I kind of tried, but it's hard when I never leave my farm. I do hope you keep sharing the letters with us.

Jim said...

Pretty good, Ms. TG, with the letter shapes you are finding. I wouldn't dare try that although IF I find one I will save it for that letter on Friday Hunt.

Spotted the A straight off EG :) Love the lighthouse at the end of the pier, perfect perspective! All the best for 2016, looking forward to seeing the remaining alphabet finds each Friday!

Candy C. said...

Looks like an A to me!! The first shot of the store window is really lovely!

Lea said...

What a creative way to get an A!
Happy New Year!

Mimi Foxmorton said...

What an amazing eye you have!
Love your choices!

Alica said...

Love the alphabetography! I don't think it's cheating at all...I'll be curious to see the next letters!

Rose said...

I see the letter 'a,' too...and that shot of the pier is so peaceful looking.

Jackie Mc Guinness said...

Perfect A!

Patty Woodland said...

There are so many wonderful ways to use those alphabetography photos. That pier looks like a lovely place to walk and then contemplate the water.
I'm here by way of Eden Hills

Giga said...

In the second picture also I see the letter A. I wish you a wonderful 2016 years!

AlexaT said...

Happy New Year, 2016!

Ralph said...

Happy New Year EG! The slender 'A' is very apparent as it supports that heavy yellow bucket. The pier is accessible and beautiful - but isn't it a bit more pleasant to traverse the pier in Summer instead??

Molly said...

Beautiful images, happy New year to you

I like your A. I'm gathering photos of things that remind me of the alphabet too, I got a lot last year, so now I'm hoping for some wintery looking ones. I lived in Whitby growing up and have lots of great memories.

Su-sieee! Mac said...

Great photos! I like your letter A, and I like your idea of finding things that are letters. Looking forward to seeing Q.
