I have fallen in love with the tops of power poles.

This is abstract design at its best… When linemen are sweating in bucket trucks held up in the air, risking their lives, do they ever think of themselves as artists?

I bet not.

Notice these complex assemblies—as I find more interesting combinations, I will add them to this blog.

Until I moved to the country, where electric is the most affordable utility, I loathed the appearance of power poles—an eyesore—to be endured. Yet in the past decade I came to appreciate the comforts these lines provide year round. Yes, underground utilities are preferred, yet these common sentinels of decades past are reminders of strides made since.
