Artist's Description

What the dickens is going on here? The perspective NEVER works. The door was level. I wasn’t but I corrected that. The glass wasn’t loose as far as I could tell. And NONE of the lamp posts looked that screwed up when I was walking up and down the busy street. So what’s the buzz with THIS???

My only guess is that the glass wasn’t made very well and it had distortions made into it but even then I didn’t see them when I was taking the shot. If ANYTHING else in the shot was distorted the same amount I’d blame my editing or my framing (which wasn’t all that stellar in the first place). All I wanted was to poke fun at the “old” doors Truckee is putting on their remodeled historic buildings. As you can clearly see, this is an old design but the door is brand new. Worse, ALL the replaced doors on the same street were the same damn door design even tho the buildings were not built at the same time or even from the same street! (They moved buildings around in Truckee’s past.)

I’ve now seen a town that thinks “old” means nothing more than the original date something happened – not the original thing from that date – is important. Signs for building dates were freshly added and some of the “old” wall art painted on the “old” buildings was credited with the date the NEW artist created the work! Can you say, “BOGUS!”

Anyway, that doesn’t explain my screwy picture but it still is an example of Truckee’s attempt to use its past as a tourist attraction without using its past at all.
