  1. First I only saw the lines of the two posts and they made me smile. Then the con-trail caught my eye and now I’m finding I’m tilting my head around to try and see it all without going cross-eyed.

  2. There’s a lot of texture in that G, which stands out nicely against the flatter sky.

  3. Gee…guess I’m lost.

    This is well and truly part of the series and benefits from the absence of foliage! The pole positioning is compositionally strong. But I’m not sure about the slight ‘crazing’ of the clouds, which is a pity because they complement the poles well.

    I don’t think that “a lot of texture in that G” does anything to help you know where you are!

  4. As this came later in the series, it brought a smile. John’s comment turned that into a laugh.

    As part of your series, I think it works very well. Brings to mind some of Matt’s images.

  5. How do we know you’re not fibbing?

    Would anything less still be a sign?

    A good addition to the series.

  6. It would appear that when it comes to signs that have been compromised, like Kansas City “We’ve gone about as fur as we can go.” The second pole certainly does its job admirably. And, lost or not, those clouds are lovely to dwell upon.

  7. I’m reminded on Wall-E or some such – a robot poking it’s sensor up to take a look around.

  8. Indeed…gee! The lamposts just ‘being’ there really puts a lot of pressure on the background to hold this together. But all we have are some fluffy clouds with no funny animal shapes leaping out as a minimum. This then forces me back to the lamposts and the nothingness. However, there is a lot of detail and interest in that nothingness and as Lillput mentions, the angles of the lampposts are particularly important. So from nothing…you sure do get plenty from this.
