Boring: so over

Eva the Weaver PRO 10:13am, 22 March 2009
Boring letters sounded - and still sounds - like a good theme. But when I started looking at my letter collection for boring stuff, I couldn't decide. Partly, as suggested, because we don't shoot the really boring letters (I suppose). But also because I tend to find something interesting in anything I see.

But perhaps boring just means gray and colourless?

Well, "boring" can be a relative term. Maybe none of us have truly boring letters - otherwise, why would we have bothered to photograph them? But surely each of us has letters that are more boring, relatively, than other instances of the same letter.

Here's an example of a B that I consider my most boring:

b

I don't think boring *necessarily* has to mean gray and colorless, though. Here's an example of a boring N that is (I think) dark blue:

N

It's boring because it's quite utilitarian, nothing fancy - not that there's anything WRONG with it, just not as interesting IMO as, say, this one:

N

Conversely, a gray and colorless letter can be quite interesting for reasons other than its color. Consider:

R

I wouldn't call this my most boring R as I find the shape quite intriguing.

Having said that, I don't think I have any really boring Cs, so someone else will need to post one.

Boring is most certainly a relative term.

our lives are complicated by the problem of "boring photo" vs. "boring letter". ideally we'd have both, but as cutesmallfuzzy says, why would we? i also agree that there could be colour in the photo and still have it qualify for this round. my C has a little.

Dd?

I think my D is a boring letter, but in an interesting photo.
There you go!

The boring alphabet is looking subtle and sober.

I like your boring but red O, csf.
I've often thought this P too boring to post.

i second the 'O' remark.
i'm worried that Q will be difficult. it's a very interesting letter!

I was having a great deal of trouble with this. Have plenty of boring letters - but always felt "not quite boring enough". Perhaps I had set my standards too low :-)
Bartlett's to the rescue - and then my lovely wife gave me these!
