March Personal Photo Challenge - Words and Letters

I had good intentions for the challenge this month, the only problem is I forgot it was words and letters and went on my merry way photographing numbers.  Hmm, could this be a senior's moment?
Anyway, into the archives and one photo from on vacation and I'm back on track.
A posting that can be found in most outdoor seating areas of restaurants in Florida.  I had to adjust the contrast as I was shooting into the sun.
I walked over this metal plate embedded in a sidewalk and got excited when I saw all the numbers.  Oh yes, it's supposed to be words - and by golly there are two words on the plate!
No time to dig out any letters, but a letter box works, right?  
If I had read the instructions more carefully, I would have been better prepared for the challenge but instead I goofed off while away last month.  
Thank you to our photography host and mentor Donna at Cottage Days and Journeys.  Any words or letters you want to share?

  1. I love the flamingo sign. I wanted to put up a Beware of Alligator sign on my post today but I was already over the limit. We see those in a lot of the State Parks. You chose good photos for the challenge my friend! Hugs!

  8. I do like that mailbox in your final photo, Judith. I don't have an "official" one; my mail is delivered to the the old milk shelf at the side of my house.

  9. The flamingo sign is so funny but I can see why it's needed around restaurants. You were clever to get these 3 photos Judith, just in time for the challenge. I like them all. Welcome home too!

  11. All three are perfect for this challenge - especially love the mailbox with a sweet chickadee - one of my favorite tiny garden birds.

  13. Hey, you got some great practice in while you searched for numbers! LOL... The challenges make us all more observant, so it was time well spent. The first sign is funny and to the point! And I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one who takes photos of sidewalks, haha. Great texture on that one. And the little letter box is cute as a button. You actually captured a photo that literally had "letters" as a subject! I always love seeing your photos.

  14. You met Donna's challenge with a great selection of words Judith!
    The flamingo notice is lovely, I would love to see these birds one day.
    Florida looks like a wonderful winter vacation destination to escape the rigours of winter.

  15. It looks to me like you met the challenge! I especially like the metal one though it looked at first like it was written in the sand! (well, being Florida and all).

  18. Great choices you have made, and maybe Donna will give us a numbers challenge one day and you can use some of the other photos you have taken! I really like the flamingo sign and I love love love that chickadee mailbox. SO sweet! The metal plate reminds me of the lovely
    manhole covers in Prague. Great texture!
