Today's By-Product is different from the usual. It is a photograph. Now for me on this venue photos are a no-no, I want it to be all handmade or digital art. But I didn't see the point in copying this image into a drawing.
This used to be a plywood sign. It was nailed to the utility pole many years ago but any lettering or color on its surface has long been washed away by the elements. Hot sun and freezing ice have separated the layers of the plywood until they look sort of like petals or peeling tree bark. It stands in a parking lot in downtown Falls Church, Virginia, a relic of an older time. It is part of my "Country within the City" theme. No one notices it but me.
