ABC WEDNESDAY LETTER " X "



Here we are at one of the more difficult letters in the alphabet.
I definitely do not have XENOPHOBIA , that is a fear of strangers or of what is strange or foreign.
If I did I wouldn't be posting all these pictures for the world to see!
There are so many X's making up the girders of the Golden Gate Bridge.
Make sure you enlarge the photo to eXamine the patterns of Xs within Xs.



I really like the bold X formation on the old Air Force plane.



Are you confused by this picture? It is as close to an X-RAY shot that I have.
You are looking at a map that is transparent. The hanger is seen behind the see thru map.
Basically that's what an X-RAY does. It allows you to see beyond and into whats behind the first layer.
Be sure to enlarge this picture to see what I'm trying to eXplain.



Last but not least, a jacket label saying the size is XL or eXtra large.
Thanks for stopping by.

Your posts are always interesting. I learn a lot of new English words each time I visit you on ABC time.
It's good you didn't ask us to count all the X's in the Golden Gate Bridge!!

Good ones Sue! I especially like the Golden Gate Bridge shot. I've been catching up and enjoyed your "w" post too!

Anna said...

Wow, where there were almost no x-words there are now myriads of them!

Wish I had thought of xenaphobia. That one could have been interesting to illustrate...

But I did not even have time to look at a dictionary. It is crazy here at home!
Best wishes,
Anna

I can lots of X here!

Gayle said...

Those really are a lot of Xs on the GG bridge. I'll have to study my surroundings to see what other letters are hidden in tall structures.

Ann said...

Last round, I too, found a building like you lots of XXXXX.

Mine will be up tomorrow.

Being literal it never occurred to me to find Xs in the environment. You have given us very clever and well captured Xs. Kudos.

magiceye said...

brilliant takes on the theme!

Grace and Bradley said...

Very nice shots, the most relevant to me is the XL, my size. I still remember the "M" day in the distance past.

You really found some great X's! I struggled to find words when I could have just looked for the X's out in the world...duh!
