Same street, different poles


Another illustration in a developing series of street scenes. 2 weeks ago, it was just Frankfort Avenue. Today, both Clifton Avenue and an intersection with Frankfort.

Of course, the location is of no interest to anyone but me. However, it could be your neighborhood, city or village.

Barry Comer

I volunteer as a design and communications consultant with Family Scholar House in Louisville, Kentucky, the Democratic Socialists of America and teach children with emotional and developmental disabilities.

I have degrees in art and was an art director for 30 years.


  1. I can’t see the original so I don’t know how the shading looks in it, but I am fine with the way it looks here. I suppose of you did a tiny bit of fiddling – increase the highlights and contrast, clarity maybe, then maybe it would be cleaner (if that’s what you meant above). I love the tree (of course!) and the way its branches intermingle with the wires.


    • There is more feathering/blending that my iPhone won’t capture. I don’t have a camera and using a scanner is too stark. I was a graphic designer for 30 years, so I am comfortable using photoshop, but you can’t “make better” what’s not there.

    I love pictures/captures of trees. But mostly when their roots pop up in the sidewalk, or they cause major destruction.

    I’m from PNW – I’ve never tried photography. Rogue trees will be my focus, with a Twin Peaks feeling.
