great scene with power lines
Salute to Power Line Engineers! (Expletives Deleted)
For several years I have been observing what a keen photographic eye the engineers who design and lay out power lines have. They know all the best photographic shots and angles and THEN THEY CLUTTER THEM UP WITH UGLY POWER LINES!!!!! THIS FORCES THE PHOTOGRAPHER TO HUNT FOR AN ANGLE NOT BLOCKED BY A (expletive deleted) POWER LINE! Not that I am excitable about the subject or anything nor do I really CARE. So I have become a calm, reasonable guy and now looks for the beauty in such situations. The graceful black lines delicately decorating the scene are sometimes accented by those adorable little balls that the engineers seemly randomly put on the lines. For example here in the Post Oak Belt of Texas near Caldwell an engineer has delightfully enhanced Mother Nature’s handiwork with his black lines.

So I found this photo and rant on the hubs’ Flickr page. It made me LOL, but I also had to dispute his findings. Those are not power lines, but hidden-in-plain-sight wormhole trails.

Just saying.

Have you ever wanted to take an awesome picture and found the view blocked by man-made obstructions? Or just man? Have you ever thought, “Just move a little, a little more…” Sigh.

I love comments so much that I pick a favorite to receive my monthly AnaBanana gift basket ($25 value).  (And don’t forget that once a quarter I’ll be tossing in something fun from the Perilously Fun Shop!) Recipient is announced the first blog post of the new month.

Perilously yours,

    Hey, almost all of my pics taken in Newfoundland sport lines of one kind or another. Can’t put lines underground in rock, ya know. I finally had to accept they were part of the scenery. I even made them the subject of one set of photos–clothes lines included! But I do sooooo understand and appreciate the rant! And I do SO wish they’d block off traffic where I want to take sunset pics here…and lower the stadium lights at a local park so I can get Blue Bonnets AND sunset!

      You and Greg should form a group or club for better access to scenery! It just made me laugh so hard and the image actually was beautiful with or without the lines. LOL

        Apparently lines are an acquired taste. Ha! Greg’s photos are always amazing. Lines or no lines. It was fun to see him in action a couple of summers ago. I always love seeing familiar places through some one else’s eyes!
