last name photo fun

LEHNOW.jpg

When we had our friends here last weekend, they came up with a couple of photo games that even the husband was willing to play along with. While we were out on our neighborhood explorations, we decided to look for anything resembling the letters in our last names. It was actually really interested and made us pay attention to every little detail. And here in nyc, there are plenty of details. {But you can't just take a photo of a letter, that was cheating.}

Anyway, what do you think? I'm going to print and frame this for our apartment. I think it's a pretty cool idea and something to get you SLR owners out and about with your cameras. Manual focus is your friend!

{I also filled a photo clock with numbers from street signs, house numbers, fire trucks etc. That turned out pretty interesting as well.}

Great idea! I have seen this done with the word "love" and a few inspirational words for sale in stores. Nice to have your own personalized name though! Turned out great!

I like it. It helps that you have the computer skills to put it all together. I am lacking in the computer skills area.
