Egad! There's an N in 'Begob' Afterall
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.
