I thought the kids picked two great themes over the Easter holidays, firstly with Point and then with the theme of Symbol for the second week, a theme that was so open and of course you did not disappoint by sending in all sorts of interpretations. When you think about it symbols are everywhere around us, guiding us on everything from finding our way around maps to the washing instructions in our smalls, there are totemic symbols of power and powerful symbols of peace or revolution. As I’m writing this each letter is of course a symbol that combined provides us with our written word which is perhaps the most powerful symbol of all as it contains within it the passport to the combined weight of human knowledge. Not bad for a collection of marks.
Huge thanks to everyone who contributed across the week and for taking part and playing along with our social photography themes, it really is appreciated. Do click on the gallery so that you can flick through the photos as they were sent in and let us know which ones you liked. Can you spot all the symbols? We’ll be back for halftermphofofun in June before the big one over the summer if people still want to play along.
