For this week’s challenge, share a photo with letters — no matter the alphabet. You can capture a neon sign, a sentence scribbled in an old phone booth, a random letter that’s seemingly out of place, or anything else. As you look through your lens, think about how your image might convey something bigger: a snapshot of how we communicate with one another, even if we don’t speak the same language.
When I saw the theme of this week’s photo challenge, I thought immediately of these letters which I have had tucked away for ten years. At age 29, our daughter was permanently brain-injured by seizures. This photo documents her slow road to recovery. I hesitate to share this image for fear it might seem exploitative. But I know Jennifer is so proud of the progress she’s made and would be happy to share this photo with you. I think it symbolizes the tremendous courage and force of will she had to come as far as she has.
