Creative images that have to do with the alphabet. Not just pics of random signs or text, something a bit more creative. Pics of objects that look like letters, a shot of a child learning/writing his ABCs, a close up of lead type on an old printing press, .... or yes, even a bowl of alphabet soup.

The challenge begins when posted, and will end on Friday, Dec 22, 2017.
The winner will be announced shortly thereafter.

CHALLENGE RULES:
1. Camera: Any DIGITAL CAMERA is allowed, (not just DSLR)
2. Time: Any on-topic photo taken at any time is eligible, although photos that have won other competitions should NOT be entered.
3. Size: See standard P.O.T.N. Image Posting Rules.
4. Post Processing: Do whatever you like and the host will decide if it works.
5. Posting: ONE PHOTO per photographer in each challenge.
6. Details: Show camera model & lens used. Post brief EXIF data including ISO, shutter speed and aperture used.
7. Commenting: Please, NO COMMENTING OR "LIKES" DURING CHALLENGE but feel free to comment in this thread after a winner is declared.
8. Content: Keep it clean, and both Family and Work safe.
9. Have questions? PM me.
10. Have FUN!

* THE WINNER ALWAYS SETS THE THEME FOR THE NEXT CHALLENGE, POSTS IT AND JUDGES IT
- BE PREPARED! A new challenge should be posted ASAP after you have been declared the winner

Yikes, only three? But they were all very good. OK, here we go......

3rd: Old Crow - Strong graphic image, and if I tilt my head it becomes a "U" as well.

Drum roll ............. Your winner: Gotta go with teekay for a very nice get. Unlike castles, these little buggers don't hold still.

Leaving M_Six with the runner up spot with a solid image of a solid structure.

I really did like all three very much. Bummer no other participants. Too much Ho Ho Ho stuff going on I guess. You're up,teekay!

Thanks for the 2nd place nod, texkam. Kudos to teekay. Love the pencil shot, OldCrow.

Onward.

Really!? I thought my dragonfly shot was a bit of a stretch and would have chosen either of the other two entries. So now I'm stuck with thinking a new one up on Christmas Day. But thanks, anyway, texkam, I'll try ;-)a
