I just love the seagulls all lined up.

I very much like your take on the word zero! This would be an understandable and fun way to teach a child about numbers. I had a different spin on the same word. :)

Meryl said...

I also love those seagulls lined up it seems choreographed! Also, great visual lesson for the 'number' Zero.

Carol said...

This is a fun take on the Z! Beautiful scenic shots...

Not stale at all. This was a fresh new way to highlight the word "zero." and it made me smile :)

Paula Scott said...

What a CLEVER approach for the letter "Z"! Bravo(a)!

Loved this take on the Z post, Carver. The "one day, there were.." and "then there were ZERO" back and forth, effective and fun. The images are great, too. Thanks! Amy
