New York, NY (PRWEB) October 1, 2010
Entrepreneur Jennifer Blakeley spent three years traveling across Canada with one goal in mind - to collect photographs of objects and scenery that resemble letters of the English alphabet. Now, the female entrepreneur can add the Big Apple to her list of travels as she recently visited New York City to take photographs for her letter art collection called Alphabet Photography.
“Through my travels I was able to photograph hundreds of objects, found completely in their natural surroundings that resembled letters of the alphabet. A bridge became the letter ‘T”, an arm on a park bench a “G” and railway tracks an “E”,” said Blakeley.
As part of Blakeley’s travels to NYC, she photographed landmarks including the Brooklyn Bridge, Statue of Liberty, Flatiron Building and the Empire State Building which have now been added to the Alphabet Photography collection. For example, in spelling I “HEART” NY in Alphabet Photography, the Statue of Liberty represents the I, the heart is gate detail found in central park, the N is a window from Grand Central Station, and the Y taken from the Brooklyn Bridge.
“With its rich history, famous landmarks and beautiful historic facades, New York City provided me with an abundance of picturesque scenery and architecture to photograph. I’m really happy I chose to include the Big Apple as part of our U.S. tour to add to the AP letter photography collection,” she added.
Blakeley’s project was inspired by a children's book called "Alphabet City". Once Blakeley had photographed several variations from A to Z, she returned home from her travels and developed the photos in sepia tone and imagined the possibility of customizing the photographs to spell names and words that were special to each individual customer. By visiting the Alphabet Photography website, you can have fun with the create your own word tool and spell out someone's first or last name, or any word you like.
Jennifer’s travels have included stops in all Canadian major provinces and cities, and she plans to aggressively travel across the United States over the course of the next year to photograph major and historic landmarks. New York City was the second stop on the tour. Jennifer recently traveled to Las Vegas and Washington, and letters from these major cities will be available before the holiday gift buying season as well.
