The current theme is BIG letters: The letter in your photograph must be at least 37 inches (94 cm) tall in real life. (This is sort of a counterpart to the "macro letters" theme we did once upon a time.)

In the archive I have:

CA * IFORN * A

so I can join in but I can't think of anyhwere locally where I could photograph letters over 3 feet high.

*I haven't got the L as there was always someone sitting on it with a crowd round them. I forgot the second "I" :(

A tall Bb is next.

wow, what a great A! and as a bonus it reminded me of some letters i had long before i was a letter collector:
I amsterdam
it's actually this:
I amsterdam
but the I was the only one i could crop out large enough to please me.

I'll get some rest while you do this. I don't have any letters like this in my photostream, nor do I see any place in Bénerville, Normandy, where I am at the moment with such large letters. Have fun!

i would say this Ff is large, but perhaps not titanic. anyone have a GiGantic G?
duncan PRO 11 years ago
H... unfortunately my G has absolutely no sense of scale to it, it could be an inch high for all you can tell from the photo. I think it's at least 5 ft. I have a slightly less cropped version which shows the pavement, if anyone wants a bit more proof of its size.

that'll teach me to get up 35 minutes earlier in the morning. (actually, of course it won't.)

I'm pretty sure this J was over 37 inches. If anyone wants to dispute that I'm happy to remove it, though.
Otherwise, big Kk!

I have more tall letters than I originally thought.

And I realize that my focus is always on the small, micro, miniscule, petit, petite, macro, detailed, not-grand, navel-searching, microscopic. Leo's List of the Large is wonderful. See you when this alphabet is done.
