Be Inspired No. 25 - Alphabet City

We are all familiar with the saying, "take time to smell the roses." I'm inspired to photograph my adventures in a whole new light. Alphabet photography is nothing new, but I am so taken by the graceful script of architectural elements that resemble letters.

These photographed "letters" paired to spell a word - give even the most ordinary word such impact. And I think it must be printed in black and white or sepia.  

The quote by Victor Hugo, "If you know how to see, you can recognize the physiognomy of a king in a door knocker" motivated college professor and photographer Marc to pursue photographing the city of Paris like a book.  Love!

So be inspired to look at architecture in a different way when looking through that camera lens. The architecture that brings awe to your eyes will offer yet another layer of character of itself.
