This is a picture of the letter F. I found it on the side of a cannon on the battlements of Castillo de Santa Barbara in Alicante, Spain in 2011. It wasn’t a big F – the disc was probably about the size of a 50 pence piece – but I found it a pleasing close-up image of textures with the rusty steel and weathered wood.
However, with this single image a photographic challenge was born: to capture all of the letters of the alphabet. I was really inspired during the holiday but, sadly, once I returned home my enthusiasm waned and, although I have added a few more letters to my collection since then, I haven’t done so for a long time and it remains incomplete.
Perhaps it is time to dust off the camera and re-invigorate the challenge. Or maybe I’ll wait until spring…
