Three is the number of cups. I had this idea all week. I found these three cups marked down to $0.50 for all at the flea market. I broke all three and tried to get the letters the way I saw it in my mind. I was not happy with the letter U, but it is what it is. I almost didn't enter it.
It has been almost 2 years since I've entered anything. When I saw my first score at a 9, I was jumping for joy.
Thank you, thank you for all your comments........It sure is great to be back.

Really, truly fantastic! Yes, 'u' is not the best, but it only makes this photo even stronger for me.

  Photographer found comment helpful.

IMHO, this is the best of the competition.
It looks like a single cup, but how many did you have to break to get the pieces perfect for this competition?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/15/2012 08:51:38 PM
When I realized this spells out Cup, I was quite impressed. Great photo
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/15/2012 06:56:24 PM
Some lateral thinking going on here. How many cups suffered in the making of the photo!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/15/2012 06:12:03 PM
great idea and implementation, how many cups did it take? nice background and lighting 7
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/15/2012 04:59:15 PM
I was asking myself how many cups needed to be smashed to come up with the right shapes. I can see that these are from more than one cup... but that is not the point... well done. Like it.
