MY COMMENTS:
From a photo taken in winter of 1978 of what was left of my favorite childhood amusement park.


MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
I was trying to convey sadness and eeriness of an abandoned park that once was a lively and happening place. It was... from 1898 to 1973.

C&C's welcome

Thank you!

Pete

i think your cheery memories snuck into the work, it's very nostalgic, which always has a sadness attached.
if you want eery i think do another darker and more roughed up version

what is the dark bit covering up the 'N"?

Thanks, La. This is (was) the entry arch into the parking lot. The dark mass is the rusted arrow light which directed traffic in. It's off to the right of that center bracket which once supported a big (creepy) clown face.

I'd say to denote age and decriptness, the letters are too well formed, too clean and the plank upon which they are painted, too new.

Really like the winter scene!
