The Alphabet starts with “A” and that is the subject of Lens-Artists’ photo challenge this week, starting appropriately with the amazing letter A!

I have a file of letter-shaped things. I got the idea for it when I saw this cute little ladder in our neighborhood and immediately thought of the letter A!

In Cairo we visited the Museum of Islamic Art. Arabic writing is an art form in itself!

In the spring, swans mate and lay their eggs. In early April, the female has laid 2 eggs and by the end of April, she has laid all her eggs!

  1. Hi, Katy. (Do I have your name right?). A great, varied collection of A’s. The ladder is very clever. i love your images of Karnak and Austria. Lovely. I see you taught ESL. So did I!

    1. Hi Patti, yes you spelled my name correctly! I taught ESL as well as bilingual at elementary level. I thought the ladder was very cute, and it was the inspiration to take photos of things that look like various letters! Is Lens-Artists going to do the whole alphabet?

  2. Ah, excellent! Love Karnak – remembering how absolutely awestruck I was there in 1981. But my heart belongs to the A-ladder. Well done!
