N plus M, T, V, X, and Z (still have P, S, Y and U to find)    This is the Waibadu steel truss bridge, built in 1856,  that spans Suzhou Creek in the foreign concession in Shanghai near The Bund (promenade along the Huangpu River). According to Wikipedia, it is the first all-steel bridge, and the only surviving example of a camelback truss bridge, in China.      At night the bridge is lit up and the colours change from red to green to cyan to magenta.  I had my camera on a tripod and took a photo of each colour phase and pasted them together in Photoshop, blending the two colours where they joined in the middle of the bridge.  The trusses could be used for a number of alphabet letters, but the more prominent are 'X's 'V's, 'M's and 'N's.  The large gold-coloured building in the background is the Broadway Mansions Hotel, where I stayed while I was in Shanghai.    Next week I'll be posting the rest of my photos from Burma, with some interesting portraits.    20/04/14 www.allenfotowild.com
Letter N - Portion of the sculpture 'Begob' by Alexander Liberman Judy's Letter Shape Challenge Week #14  (April 20, 2014)  DP110-2014  Posted April 20 (Easter Sunday); created April 19 from a shot taken April 9. I decided to have my random walk through the alphabet in this challenge intersect the more orderly journey most of you are on at a couple of points, one near the middle, and again at the very end.  So today, for the first time, I'm in synch with most of the rest of you.  Once again I stupidly didn't compose my shot when I took it with enough extra to allow for a square crop.  I tried two versions for the presentation as an overall square, starting with a portrait format shape of image.  For this one, the original proportions of the sculpture were preserved and the frame was made wider to compensate.  For the other (seen here:  http://smu.gs/1lmRJDG), I distorted the image to a square, and then added a conventional frame.  I preferred the verisimilitude of the undistorted image.  Others might prefer the esthetics of the more perfect symmetry of the distorted image.  Pictures of the entire sculpture can be seen here:  http://arctangent.smugmug.com/Art/Alexander-Liberman/Begob-Painted-Steel-Sculpture/26658822_qjC7Pd   Title:   Egad!  There's an N in 'Begob' Afterall  See the source image for this N here:  http://smu.gs/1mohpPO My evolving gallery of Letter Shape Challenge entries is here:  http://arctangent.smugmug.com/Themes/Alphabet-Sets/Letter-Shape-Dailies-Set/36108770_45rkxw

19.04.14 - Meet "Major"  This is from yesterday filming for "Tell Them of Us". When William Crowder, played here by Adam Fielding, was conscripted into the army for WW1 he joined the Lincolnshire Yeomanry. This was a mounted Home Guard unit so we had to find a horse to film him with. Meet "Major", 17 hands of handsome horse!

N plus M, T, V, X, and Z (still have P, S, Y and U to find)

This is the Waibadu steel truss bridge, built in 1856, that spans Suzhou Creek in the foreign concession in Shanghai near The Bund (promenade along the Huangpu River). According to Wikipedia, it is the first all-steel bridge, and the only surviving example of a camelback truss bridge, in China.

At night the bridge is lit up and the colours change from red to green to cyan to magenta. I had my camera on a tripod and took a photo of each colour phase and pasted them together in Photoshop, blending the two colours where they joined in the middle of the bridge. The trusses could be used for a number of alphabet letters, but the more prominent are 'X's 'V's, 'M's and 'N's. The large gold-coloured building in the background is the Broadway Mansions Hotel, where I stayed while I was in Shanghai.

Next week I'll be posting the rest of my photos from Burma, with some interesting portraits.
