Archives For found type

Another something I tripped over the other day on my walk…

Sometimes when processing images, I find random shots which seem the result of occasional, accidental shutter bumps. Do you ever do that? When dealing with film the occasional, accidental shot used to drive me NUTS, but with digital I could care less and am often amused by the result regardless of whether it “works” or not. Here’s one I just found this weekend:

It doesn’t matter whether you won or lost…. just that you tried your best. So just keep trying.

Update: Like this photo? Now it’s available as a matted archival print here in my Etsy shop.

Lucky 7

I’ve been doing a bit of traveling again, recently. Last week I was away at a conference and this weekend I find myself in London.

Finally, I’m picking up the camera again, mostly for quick snapshots or to record fragments of ideas; even so it feels good.

Here are a few snaps from the last couple of days… typography has been on my mind lately, you may notice:

More later, dear readers…

This morning, my inbox greeted me with a few reader e-mails; most notably and amusingly, this photo from a reader in the United Kingdom with the caption “There you are:”

Ever the fan of found type, especially when it’s a variation on a name or initials, I couldn’t resist sharing the reader’s find. Thanks, folks! Keep ’em coming!

Even when I’m out running errands, I end up working. See?

Working while trying to take a break isn’t really such a terrible thing, mind you…

Do you have a hard time turning off your work brain, dear readers?

Earlier this weekend, a reader sent me this photo they snapped on a recent trip to London:

They were amused by the odd mission statements or promises of the institution, and thought I might agree that perhaps their aim to “Raise the Dead” was at best inspiring, if a bit creepy.

I’ve been inside for most of the day editing, ironically, images of the beautiful autumn colors outside. Here are just a few:

Couldn’t resist the abruptness of the last image in contrast to the other four.

September

A number of you have asked me what ever happened to September. Allow me to illustrate with a photo:

I always felt it was better to show rather than tell. Wouldn’t you agree?

Notes like this remind me of how lucky I am to have friends like I do– a little bit of silliness to share a smile.

Out of order?

It is always interesting to see what sort of messages a different culture sends out, even one so seemingly similar. Here are a few highlights from a trip to London a few weeks ago:
