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!
Today’s featured member, Herbert, gives the impression that he is interested in people as much as he loves cameras—and he has many vintage treasures. Even a casual snapshot of his has a story that suggests curiosity about the people he photographs.
He will respectfully ask for a photo session. He does not outline why, and if you are shy, you will wonder what he has seen in you. He greets reluctance with understanding and a resounding yes with an equal amount of enthusiasm. When the day comes, he will treat you like a collaborator. And whenever he talks about the outcome—comely photos of what looks like your most confident self—he will always call you a muse.

Diana F+ is something of a wild child. It loves outré looks, multiple exposures and outlandish colors. But loaded with the right 120 film, it can show a mellow side that favors rule-of-thirds perfection and subdued coloring.
