Foot Traffic

  • Triple play
    If one is good and two is better, what does that make three? I'd be inclined to say crazy but others might call it a challenge.
  • Homerun finish
    Tuesday's 4-mile run through the Woodhurst neighborhood had taken it out of me.
  • With a little help from friends
    Aubree Reichel is a runner and works in the sports department at the Journal Gazette. She will be participating in the half marathon at the 2014 Fort4Fitness fall festival.

Shooter's Comments:

Since I covered the ACD Auction this whole weekend I thought it would be interesting to shoot detail shots of cars by going through the alphabet. It was really fun looking for the shapes of all the letters.

I was challenged in my creative mind because some letters were a bit hard like G, B, K, and R. Luckily, drops of rain were beading on a blue car and one droplet looked like a G. Other letters just kind of popped out, while others I really had to search for.

I got this idea from one of my photojournalism friends from college. She did this at her paper's fair. I just thought, "Why not take some time and look closely at the details of all the hundreds of cars?"

I might even put a book together for my son so he can learn his alphabet visually. I encourage anyone with a camera to go out and look for the alphabet in your home, outside, or just around town. See what you come up with. It was fun!
