Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Perspective Power Poles

These high voltage power lines run through our dog park. Due to the possibility of high winds the poles are secured with guy wires as you would do when putting up a tent pole. Looking at these from a different perspective changes the perception that I normally have of a power pole. The last photograph shows the perspective I would normally see these structures (without the flooding).

Created for  Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge  where this week we have been asked to change our perspective by showing an unusual angle or point of view.

About Irene Waters 19 Writer Memoirist

I began my working career as a reluctant potato peeler whilst waiting to commence my training as a student nurse. On completion I worked mainly in intensive care/coronary care; finishing my hospital career as clinical nurse educator in intensive care. A life changing period as a resort owner/manager on the island of Tanna in Vanuatu was followed by recovery time as a farmer at Bucca Wauka. Having discovered I was no farmer and vowing never again to own an animal bigger than myself I took on the Barrington General Store. Here we also ran a five star restaurant. Working the shop of a day 7am - 6pm followed by the restaurant until late was surprisingly more stressful than Tanna. On the sale we decided to retire and renovate our house with the help of a builder friend. Now believing we knew everything about building we set to constructing our own house. Just finished a coal mine decided to set up in our backyard. Definitely time to retire we moved to Queensland. I had been writing a manuscript for some time. In the desire to complete this I enrolled in a post grad certificate in creative Industries which I completed 2013. Commenced a masters by research in 2014.

    Those first two photos are almost a dizzying perspective. The close-ups and then the long-shot show that there are many ways to look at something we see every day.
