Tucker's Supermarket




Number 3 in the series.

The top, old-timey image looking a little more geometric this time.

Link to the image seems to be broken.

I tried re-publishing it a couple of times, I can't figure out what the problem is...

The link is wrong... should be linking to:

You might be able to fix it by editing the HTML of the blog post.

I really like these diptychs... really interesting to see this kind of comparison done through drawings instead of photography. It makes it a little less obvious which is the old scene and which is the new, and I end up paying more attention to the pictures to try and figure it out.

Here is a working link to the large version of the picture.

Thank you very much Matthew.

Nice! Gotta love those false fronts on buildings. This kinda reminds me of that strip R. Crumb did called "The history of America" or something...if I can find it I'll post a link. Basically it shows the uglification (if you will) of a town. I thought of that when I looked at the differences between the power lines in the two images.

Yeah Dave, I love that strip. I'm trying to capture what Crumb did with my diptychs. Not that I think progress is all bad...
