As a part of my design photo class, students set off to capture a series of the western alphabet within their own selected theme. My topic consisted entirely of shadows, which I found compelling because they often go unnoticed by passersby. A large number of the shadows I encountered were very organic in shape, and were difficult to discern as letters. Therefore, my selection was predominantly from an urban environment, where geometric shapes were abundant.

This series was completed over the course of four days, which required several miles of walking. Every time I found a letter in my checklist, it felt almost as if I had discovered a $20 bill on the ground. Other pedestrians were often puzzled as to why I was photographing the ground. Obviously!
