This image was studied to look at the effects of layers in photography:
This image is all about layering. The depth in this image is not distinctive at all There is a corner on the wall were the american gas sign ends however because of the way this photograph was been taken it looks like one big flat plane. As the emphasis of this image is this signs i think the flatness works perfectly as it looks like they could all be one big billboard for one image. The building look as if it could be a flyer coming off the lamp post that is how flat this images appears to be.
