I've just received the latest Photojojo newsletter and rather like their latest idea of doing a photographic dictionary. Not simply A for apple, B for Bee but A for Anarchy or B for Beligerant for example - could be interesting and a project added to my rather extensive 'to do' list.

Just thought I'd share in case anyone else was in need of a little inspiration or direction Smile

Not sure I follow - you want to write an alternative photographic dictionary? How, and with what purpose exactly?

No - just an ongoing project thing - like the take a photo a day idea but in this case take a photo for each letter of the dictionary (not every day though).

Purely a way to use the brain and try to come up with some different/inventive ideas to represent each letter of the alphabet.

I'm wondering that makes any more sense Smile

AH - maybe if I said alphabet it would make more sense !

Yep, it would. See what you mean now. Well, it would certainly keep you busy for 26 days!

I really should stop, think and read my posts half a dozen times before hitting submit Smile

I reckon it would make an amusing back-burner kind of exercise - coming up with 26 ideas and doing a decent job of it would take me at least the next year Smile

I understood what you meant, Conrad was being too literal again Wink

C for Conrad!

Oh, right - too literal. Well, next time I'll assume people don't mean what they say, would that work better for you?

Nice idea Alison (I understood it too, by the way) Smile

A for Anarchy, B for Beligerant, C for Conspiracy...

Ah - at least I made some sort of sense Smile Now I have to learn to use the spellcheck - belligerent is a better spelling.... (so much for a grammar school education!)

Great idea, just need to pick what you are going to use as a baseline......think I might combine this with the song titles idea that I was going to do last year.......off to the drawing board Smile

I'd be very hard pushed to find enough food items in my house to do that - b for beans, s for soup - that's about it really Smile

Glad the idea appeals though - I'll be making a list soon - well if nothing else I'll write my a-z on a sheet of paper and start adding possible subjects when my brain provides me with something useful...

52, if you include the lowercase letters?

or go even further and have two pictures for each letter - noun and verb - that would make 52 without having lower case letters Smile ?

Hmm, wonder if I could combine that with another project I'm working on...
