Lofty past

utility pole made out of a whole tree trunk
THEME DAY: ELECTRICITY • Metro Manila still has some old utility poles (which now carry telephone, cable television, and internet cables, aside from the original power cables) which are made out of whole tree trunks.

See how other City Daily Photo bloggers interpret this month's theme. Click here to view thumbnails for all participants.

We still have mainly poles like this in Sydney. However, the trees are kept trimmed around them, and nothing interferes with the wires for quite a few feet. Surely with this one here, you are risking a fire when the branches and the wires cross!!

je trouve que c'est une bonne idée et que c'est quand même plus esthétique

All the different takes on electricity have been really fun to see today. I like yours, it's original!

I thought it was a lovely tree at first. The theme of electricity is proving to be more interesting than I first thought it would be!
