U -- five more to go

For anyone who hasn't figured it out yet, I have been doing the alphabet in pictures.

I had today's idea well in advance BUT this morning before setting up my shot I looked to see what others had uploaded already on another 365 project site I upload to. And what did I find? Someone had taken nearly my exact shot; a pic of our ulu knife. So, back to the drawing board. I first came up with the idea of taking a photo of my uvula. I set it all up in front of the mirror, took about twenty pictures and then checked them out on the computer. I cropped out most of my face and had one that looked pretty good. But it also looked kind of gross. :-) So, I adjusted it to black and white. A little better, but still a bit gross. Back to the drawing board again, which for me this time, meant a trip to the basement. And I was not disappointed. There I found an old U bolt, a bit rusty, but it would do.
