    This looks photoshopped, not to play that old card all over the internet.

    A) These signs are taller than the tree. That seems odd.

    B) On the bottom sign, the letters slope differently than the top sign. It’s possible they are at different angles on a round pole, for example, but also odd.

    If you’d like, I’ll go back and take a shot of the whole gas station. Or, if you ever happen to be in the Ann Arbor area, you can stop by the TA station on Baker Road off I-94 and look for yourself. You’ll find a young tree in front of a fairly tall sign (maybe 20 feet tall), and you’ll find that if — and that’s a big if, because I think you’re reaching with the second one — the lettering isn’t consistent, it’s not because of anything I did to the picture.

    Believe me, I make my living as a photographer, and I don’t make a habit of changing the basic elements of my photographs unless it’s in an obviously comical fashion, like this one.

    LOL, what do they do, let the air out of your tires & sell the gas straight from your tank?
