Photos of Words

Updated on October 17, 2012

Photographs of Words

Photos of words. That's it. Read on!

[Well, I was going to leave it there as a nice, pithy intro. But the Squidoo system has recently taken to demanding more content in this section. So, to stop this highly ranked lens going offline, I'm padding. This is particularly difficult for me, as I'm a copywriter. But there you have it. Hopefully I now have enough words to satisfy the ROBOT. Let's see ... ]

Sleep - You know you want it!

The warm bedside lamp vies with the cold light of day. Flecks of dreams strew a button which, if it were many times larger, could pass for a portal to some futuristic chamber. At the edges, fragmented tasks compete for attention, but it's still way too early to focus!

Push - Great advice for life!

I took a dozen shots trying to capture this word. But with the harsh inside/outside light contrast, moving background and reflective, multilayered surfaces, it was very tricky. I chose this shot over ones featuring young girls on High Street shopping sprees as it adds another dimension of meaning. Also, this bloke wasn't moving so fast! :)

Scratched - It was bound to happen eventually ...

I went to a Richmond pub for a drink. But the bar had been filled with pokies and the lounge had become a betting room. So I snapped this word and fled. I love the irony of Cage Fighter being ... scratched.

Lubricant - I think we've finally run out ...

There are some wild blocks in my inner urban suburb. Millions of dollars of real estate playing host to all manner of detritus. This can looks like it has been here for a long, long time. I'm assuming it's an oil-based lubricant, which makes the corrosion something of a miracle. How patient rust is!

Out for summer.

Gotta be in it to win it!

Are we having it yet?

      @JanieceTobey: Thank you! It was an odd word to see on the side of an old building. It took many attempts to frame correctly. I'm so pleased you like it. :)

      @David Stone1: Thanks very much, Dave, for your response. I'd not heard of Ed Ruscha, but I just looked him up and his work seems fascinating. Thanks for the heads up (and your kind lensrolling). Best regards, P. :)

      Cool stuff. Made me think of Ed Ruscha to start, but you did your own thing here. Nice, artsy take on it. I've lensrolled to three of my own art-oriented lenses. Look forward to seeing more of your work.

      @darciefrench lm: I'm elated that you feel that way, Darcie. I like your idea and will give it some serious thought. Thank you for your kind words. :)

      I find I'm compelled to comment on individual photos- maybe some more guestbooks? I love the way you see the essence of things and it would be cool to ask questions about each photo. -:)

      @GrowWear: Yes, they rather lucked out there! Still, I believe landscaping is actualy on the way! I just got a letter from the council about it. :)

      Special indeed! Great pic. Didn't our dear friend Jason have a car like that once? Those were the days. Of course, the people in those days were always saying of other days that THOSE were the days. So it's hard to be sure. To be sure. Carry on.

      What a great idea! You've inspired me to do the same thing in my area. I'll be sure and let you know when I have something to show for my neck of the woods! :)

      This is another fabulous idea. You could call it 'Pictionary'. Or is that taken? Whatever, carry on. I look forward to more!
