  1. The gap in the foliage between the right of the ‘Adult & Community Services’ sign and the edge of the shot is somewhat troubling. It doesn’t feel complete to me without some sort of obstruction over all edges of that sign… unless of course it’s a step to the next in the series.

  2. Well, I would venture that this is documentary in a subtle way: that Woodgrove sign is very typical of the sort of sign that describes something in the way of an obscure government document. Also familiar is the ‘landscaped’ rolling vegetation of the shrubs: a sure sign of a well-tended institution. The b/w both picks out the different leaf types very well and gives a 3-D depth.

    There is a lot more in this one than others in the series and still includes a hidden road sign.

  3. The juxtaposition of the ‘new’ sign and the old buried street sign is interesting as are the signs that nature is attempting to hide the new.

  4. Another that fits well into the series with a simple effective composition. I like the various leaf textures — can almost imagine the different leaf colors.

  5. Agree with Christina about the textures & john about there being more but…
    Somthing’s not quite fitting for me. I feel no sense of context – the VSA sign feels a bit incongruous with the rest of the series. It suggests I should know more but I don’t. In some ways seems like a story where I’ve missed the introduction, leaving me a bit lost.

  6. The partially obscured slogan is what make this work for me.

  7. I agree with Doonster that I feel as though I missed a part of this story. I see that the theme has been expanded to include all sorts of obscured signs, not just road signs; but I find that I simply wander away to “play” in the surrounding leaves, since they are so temptingly detailed.
