I often photographed colonial churches in Central America. Once as I was trying to get to a spot that would minimize the telephone/electric lines in front of a church I noticed an artist painted it with all such clutter left out. It struck me that he could really capture it in the way our memory might filter it and hold it.
Robert Crumb specially used to ride around town photographing such visual clutter to make his urban landscapes more accurate.

You ever seen Fritz the Cat? Great depiction of the 60s. Much different than the idealized leftist version.
