A Tangle of Wires

Posted by
Elaine Hancock (Olney, United States) on 27 February 2015 in Cityscape & Urban.

It is funny how we are so used to seeing the power lines, that sometimes we really don't see them. In Ellicott City, the wires are like a jungle and run everywhere. You can't miss them even if you tried!

We live with the same "pattern", but I must admit it is disturbing at times!

Une ville où l'on est branché !!! ( jeu de mots je ne sais pas ce que cela va donner en anglais !) Excellent N&B !

A city where one is connected !!! (Pun I do not know what it is going to give in English!) Excellent B & W!

A fine picture illustrating the density of wires in some cities.

this is so typical of american towns, i think. not exactly pretty, but fascinating nonetheless ...

@franz: I totally agree!

Roger Dekert from Vauréal, France

C'est étonnant, on retourne un peu dans le passé avec ces lignes électriques aériennes...
De nos jours, les lignes électriques et téléphoniques sont sous les trottoirs...
Le modernisme enlève parfois du charme à nos villes.
J'aime cette photo qui évoque un peu notre jeunesse...

@Roger Dekert: Dans les zones les plus récents sont les lignes de métro. Ils semblent juste être partout dans cette petite ville.

You are right, most of the time I do not even notice the wires. This B&W really brings out what a tangle they are.

And they make a very interesting photo of the wires mixed with tree branches & those trees are quite large too.... I can still get a glimpse of other things going on though! Nicely captured!

This is super, Elaine! I Love the interplay and simultaneous contrast of the limbs and the wires...all tangling with each other ..

It's like this in Kyoto too. I can't tell you how many potentially great street scenes have been ruined by the power lines. Thankfully, Kyoto city is gradually working on a beautification project to put them underground.

I went to your portfolio to explore, but see you aren't use it regularly, so here I am, going a day at a time.
I got to this one and had to laugh. We live in a community with underground wiring here in FL, and while visiting our daughter 'n family last summer in NJ, I was so frustrated not being able to shoot photos w/o poles and wire 'everywhere'. It's all in what we get used to, I guess. ;D
