Assignment: A Photographic Alphabet

I give out the occasional assignment to my students, and here is one I particularly like.
For this assignment, you are trying to find elements in a scene that form letters. Not a sign that has letters on it, but pieces of wood that make a K shape, the side of a swing that forms an A, or metal bars on a firepit screen that make an X.

This kind of assignment is also good for taking a look through your archive of images to see what you may have already taken that contains letters!

To see some of the shots my students have come up with, check them out here:
