ABC WEDNESDAY LETTER " U "



I UNDERSTAND that the letter we are posting this week is " U ".

In trying to find photos and a theme for " U ",
I  ULTIMATELY decided on the theme,

UP.

This little girl sculpture is UP on the sea saw.

If you look closely at the enlarged photo you can see that her big
toe is pointing UP too.

I thought the sepia treatment gave the picture an UNUSUALLY serene quality.

I USUALLY enlarge the photos to see more detail.
Don't forget to do the same.



This little guy is gazing UPWARD at his friend going UP on the sea saw.



I sure wonder what these kids are UP to.

Doesn't it make you wonder what the secret is ?



UP close and personal.

This rose had a lovely peppermint stripe in it.

I had to get UP very close to smell it's heady fragrance.

To see what others have UPLOADED to the link just click on the
ABC link on my sidebar.

There was an old rugby commentator who used to talk about going "up and under" and tangetially your post reminded me of him.

It looks a lovely gathering to come across in a wood, the first photo did indeed look real until enlarged.

A terrific Up post, and I love the timeless touch in the photos of the kids (they look so real too!). Wonderful rose - I didn't even know they came in such pattern.
