THEO letters

So, my name is Theo.  As you may have realized, out of all my hobbies, photography is what I’m into right now.  Something I learned from a GREAT photographer named Bryan Peterson (who has amazing books you should check out) is that while you are out and about with your camera, try taking pictures of letters so you can make the whole alphabet.  Once you have the whole alphabet you can put them together to create words.  He often makes pictures of peoples names and gives them as gives.  Above is my name without the fancy cropping and photo shopping them together (don’t have photoshop yet.)  Here is the origin of each letter

  • T – is the t from “STOP” printed on a road.  very LARGE letter
  • H – is the hunt in the Hunt Club sign of our apartment complex at night
  • E – is from the Lowe’s Cineplex sign that I took straight on from the top of a parking garage
  • O is from the Rio Granda Cafe. at dusk.

Makes for great pictures and you can keep adding to your collection!  Hope this was helpful in your own photography!

Hobby #18 of 139 – Art!  Life is so much better when we have an appreciation of art.  You don’t need to go to school or even be talented to appreciate art.  In fact, art in my opinion is even better when we discover something that wasn’t even intended to be “art”  Take this picture above for example.  This is in the paint section of an art store that someone just splashed on there so you could see how the paint blends.  Nothing more than a sample.  Its only half the size of the palm of your hand.  But look at it!  I just had to take a picture of it with my Nikon D3100.  I always adore how well black and red go together.  But notice the white as well!  It really drives your eye even more to the center of the little painting.

To me when I see this, I see the “Eye of Sauron”.  You know, that eye on top of the tower in Lord of the Rings that longs for the ring.  It’s not obviously that, but that’s half the fun of appreciation art. It really is the little things in life.  Life is better when you can enjoy the little things in life, such as hidden art gems.
