You may be forgiven for thinking that I have finally decided that I’m not wired up right (only finally???). My current photo fetish seems to be, though. I have been looking at the way modern man-made utility towers can fit in with our natural landscape. Some folk think they are eyesores and blots on said landscape, and may be inclined to leave well alone, or airbrush stray wires out of compositions. I think they can blend in quite nicely and provide an interesting contrast in rural settings.
I have previously posted both on Instagram, and right here on Where there’s a Jill, there’s a way, structures such as electricity pylons and wind turbines. Each depict a certain strange beauty for me and have proved surprisingly photogenic.
So, in my usual enthusiastic and haphazard way, I have compiled a few photos of our humble Slaithwaite telegraph poles for you to consider and comment on if you see fit.
So there you have it. A newish thing for me thinking more about form and structure as well as texture. I will be soon trying my hand at street photography, but I shall always return to nature as sooner or later we all must.
