Alphabet Series: No.9, Lowercase "a" or No.2

Some background on my Alpha Series Project...
It all started when I found a beautiful lowercase script e.
Then, to be fair, I gave this A some Attention.
It took on a life of it's own from there on in.
Since so many people responded to it, 
I began shooting & posting more "found letters."
Contrary to what Jane and Brad think,
NO ANIMALS OR OBJECTS HAVE BEEN POKED OR PRODDED
to please my artistic sensibilities.
These are letters that jump out at me while I'm out in the world.
Having been a graphic designer now, for (ahem) 23 years,
my eyes are trained to see the shapes, serifs and positive space
that letters make. It's ingrained in me.

That said, there ARE times where I might 
flip or flop a photo to suit my needs. For example:
[Jean, avert your eyes]


Would this be a better No. 6, or No. 9?

...or a No.2.
...or a lowercase a?
I'll let YOU decide.

Lower case g? It's pretty malleable...so it depends on what pages you have left to fill when the book comes out. :-)
