Templeton vs. Hopper

I'm not at all educated in art, but I have always enjoyed the look and feel of Edward Hopper's paintings. Sometime last year I first stumbled upon this 1927 piece by Hopper titled "Custom House, Portland." 

Since I enjoyed the painting and the Custom House has always been one of my favorite buildings in Portland, I knew a sort of "before and after" photo was needed. Here's what I came up with today, complete with the slightly titled telephone pole (perhaps done in honor of Hopper by our local utilities company?).
