You might be scared of them, as they usually look ominous with all of the crows perched atop. They might remind you of your childhood too, riding out in a cross country journey with nothing to do but count them as you pass by. Here's our little ode to telephone poles and wires!
Sure, they might be unsightly at times, obscuring an otherwise majestic scene with wires strewn all over the place. But let’s face it. Telephone poles and wires are a reality that we have to accept so we might as well make the most out of it! With a little creativity here and there, you can deliver exceptional photos of even the unsightliest of wires as evidenced by our shooters in this week’s gallery. So go out, shoot and don’t forget to look up!
