Five "5" photos for five May





It's the fifth of May, the fifth month of the year, so (unlike the madness of posting one "3" photo a day throughout March), here are five "5" photos for this one day.

First is a "5" I found in downtown Los Angeles one year while conducting a photo walk. And then a big red "5" on the front door of a shop in Coupeville, Whidbey Island.

The third "5" is a close-up of a "5" on a bank note from Saudi Arabia. (Hey, art is where you find it, right?)

The fourth photo is a transmogrified "5," a photomontage that I created, flattened, and then used a painterly/sketch program (can't remember which one) to alter it yet again.

And the fifth and final photo is a trio of "5s" I found in Little Italy, San Diego.

Five. Such a visually cool number -- great curves along with a few straight lines -- and such a visually cool month, too, with all the blooming and color happening throughout.

Wishing you, all FIVE of my readers (!), a visually cool month as well.
