  1. I really like these, Linda, especially because you chose not to fiddle with them so the old signs would show up better, or change the perspective…hey, you could have removed that string of lights, too. But the fact that you didn’t do any of those things is the point. I like exactly what you chose to include, and the way you chose to present it: the first photo, with the budding tree branches adding another texture, then the closer view with the interesting juxtaposition of light strings and painted brick. And just think, the company that painted the price on that wall was confident that it wouldn’t change anytime soon, wow. Different times.

    • I wish we could tell what cost $3.50. Glad you like what I did here—or rather, didn’t do. I tried this photo later in the year last year, and it just didn’t work—too much tree and not enough light. I’m sure there’s someone in town who knows what this sign (or signs—there may be more than one layer) says. Thanks as always, Lynn.

      • I think there are several layers too…you could probably research it…maybe old photos of that street – an image search. In your spare time!

        Yes, the light was beautiful on this one and I can imagine different light makes a very different scene.
