Scavenger Challenge #3--"SMART"

"Smart".  Just a little too abstract for me, so I began to think concretely which is my thinking process of choice and this is what I came up with. It's funny how this works.  I started out with only the idea of the Scrabble board with the word.  My first image (not shown) is just the word laying on the board as you would place it in a game. Okay, kind of boring, but at least fulfilling the topic.  Then I skewed the tiles.  Hmmm, better but still not too exciting.

   Then I began moving them around, shooting from different angles.
Stand them up next to each other (also not shown).  Well, even a little better.
Then this image.  "Now I'm getting somewhere".

Then..."why not make a play on the word"---

Now, none of these are award winning, but for the 15-20 minutes I spent on the project, I had fun.  And I'm always surprised (although I shouldn't be) at how the act of creating feeds itself if you let it.
