Alphabet Finds: I and J

Ever on the lookout for new and different challenges, I've decided to take on Melli's alphabet challenge. The idea is to find each letter of the alphabet in a naturally occurring state. In other words (or in other letters), no fair using the 'S' in a stop sign; rather you need to find something that is shaped like an 'S'. This week: I and J.

Well, 'I' is a pretty easy letter to find. But should it be a serif I or a sans serif? A capital I? Cursive? Calligraphy? Oh, the burning questions. This 'I' jumped out at me the other day and I said, yeah, that's it. Got my I. It's got a little foot and a little hat, which makes it in the serif family.



'J' seemed pretty easy too, we have enough plant hanger doo-hickeys around the house. But I liked the looks of this one, even though I had to turn it sideways. It's from a bench down by the waterfront.

Turning it on its side! Tricksy!

I love your J! Now, when you get to my blog I'll have you know that isn't a little plant hanger doo-hickey. It's on my tripod and it's a little camera hanger doo-hickey!

Love the "J" and I was just at Melli's reading she had a fancier J that might be a Y and I couldn't see how she might - I can see it with yours. Clearly a Y and a J!

I wouldn't have seen the I!

Perfect finds! I flipped my J...

Excellent "J"

Mine is posted. Or should that be 'mine ARE posted? Mine is...mine are...either case they've been published on my blog. LOL

Those are both great! I am liking the variety of I's I am seeing in the challenge! I have had to turn a couple of pictures sideways, too.

OH YOU DID IT! You USED my J that could be a Y too!!! I wondered if anyone would... and you did! That's okay! It IS a GREAT J! I'll find ANOTHER "Y"! LOL! That's an outstanding I too! Love them both!
