08:23 pm - Garage Doors II

Aurora Ave. N., Seattle
14 May 2006

I like this version better than the one I posted yesterday. The line above the letters is a little smoother, which makes the letters themselves look smoother. Also, I dropped the joke with the "oooooooooooooo"s because the image itself is weird enough on its own.

I think I missed the post that talked about what inspired this series. Could you explain it to me a little, or link to something?

And am I still invited over Friday?

To answer your second question: Yes! In fact, I was going to send you an email today.

I don't think there was a post. We were driving up Aurora on Saturday, and drove past this sign for a garage door business. It struck me that it might be an interesting subject for the Hockneyesque collages I've been doing lately. In yesterday's version, I bottom aligned the letters, which left the overhang line above them looking very jagged. I also repeated the "oo" in doors a numbers of times. This time, I aligned on the overhang, which didn't affect the letters but left that line smoother. Also, I left out the repeated "oo" joke. It still is hard to determine exactly what I did, and what is there in so-called reality, which for some reason attracts me.

Um, does any of this make sense?
