The Letter O Collage....

Finally - a more complete collage for the letter O, with:
an oracle, oysters, Oregon, and Offices.
I think our Aye-Aye may have to eat 
those oysters.

If I don't steal them first.

Optometry & Oracles

I'm working towards a new world based on images for the letter O. 
I love the many images associated with optometry such as those above and below, especially the ghostly hand projection below.

In addition, there are some beautiful images associated with opera.
Donizetti's Lucia di Lamermoor at the Met (2002-3 season)

Rosa Ponselle

However, so far ia m beginning to work with "Offices, 1945" and an "Oracle - The Pythia from Delphi." I'm thinking of adding some Oysters and an open window on Oregon...

Thanks to Forest for these Scans!

O, Abecedarian...

I'm writing this at the Mid-Manhattan Library, home to the Picture Collection, where I've been investigating the letter O today. Naturally, the hundreds of images I looked at today are still spinning around in my mind, refusing to take a concrete form, but some of my favorite folders contained within the letter O include Oysters, Offices, Opera, Oracles, and Optometry... (and that doesn't even include Oregon or Obelisks.) How will they form a world?
