Emily Hildebrand, nice article and thanks a lot for posting such photographs as I always wonder that what is the significance of these power lines and more over there other things also like overhead tanks, chimneys as they create unusual effect on the landscape. To me it is more like a obelisk as these are somehow become the center of attraction and creates a focus in the surrounding. These have symbolism to their context.
now i will also shoot such photographs….
This article has given me a direction….
hurrah!!! 😀
