V

pairWhile walking around Syracuse, I came across this V outside an optometrist’s office (V is for Vision?). While I’m sure it’s decorative, I think it’s so neat how it appears to be structural (V is for Virile?). Those are some mighty strong lookin’ serifs! When I saw it, I thought about the very delicate V made up of bells in Cincinnati. Nothing strong about this V as it’s meant to move with the wind. Interesting contrast in letterforms.
