Looks like you've spotted some OLD details!

see you there! said...

The first thing that caught my eye was the old glass insulators. I have a few of those sitting on a windowsill.

It is very old and not in use. They always look sad to me.
Neat capture. MB

I like this picture! I especially like the glass insulators and the tree (vine) reaching up to the crossbar. Very well done!

jay said...

Very original angle! It works extremely well, though - and I love the fact that it's disused and falling apart. What is it about decay that's so photogenic?

Tricia said...

Great macro - That's a stretch at that height!

This takes me back to my childhood and the train lines behind our home... You captured it so well.

nice picture, it reminds me of when I was a kid. My dad was the definition of recycle. We spent a summer collecting cross arms and my dad built a fence around our yard with them.

So,
1. u got yourself a bucket truck
2. the electric company hired u
3. u got a honkin' 30x lens and a
quad-pod to hold it.
Whatever, it's a fantastic shot, the light gods were with u 2.

Beautiful composition, it's a pity that it's abandoned.

PERBS said...

Well, that's another thing I ahve never thought of taking a photo of. . . writing that down to consider in my travels. lol

Jacob said...

Lovely, E.G.

You know what the bird said who landed on an uninsulated wire on that very pole:

"Yikes! I got a charge out of that!"

Is a composition truly magnificent!

SandyCarlson said...

That's a neat shot.

Becky and Gary said...

Excellant shot EG.
Gary and I collected telegraph insulators for years. At one time we had 100's of them, and we have a nice collection now.

Wow! Very interesting - it doesn't look like it is functional now a days. Fascinating - reminds me of the posts of my childhood.

Honey Mommy said...

What a cool photo. I guess I should look up for macros more often!

Rajesh said...

Very nice shot. Simple yet effective.

Rose said...

That looks about as old as I feel some morns!

I love old stuff especially if it's still in use. Lovely macro!

♥Rocío♥ said...

Wow, I have never seen something like this. Great Capture!

lisaschaos said...

Did you climb, climb, climb to get that? lol I hope not. Very cool!

Judy said...

Great shot! I am surprised that all the bits and pieces are still there when the pole is no longer in use!
