Winner: So That's Y!!!
Detail crop of an image of something normal to show that it LOOKS LIKE a letter of the alphabet. A common theme I have seen lately is making prints of detail shots and selectively cropping it to show what looks like a letter of the alphabet. So let's make a challenge out of it and see what you can come up with. Please note the additional rules for clarification for entrants and voters....
