Skywires – 1


Some see an interruption, a disruption,

our marks upon the landscape.

Really so different from a termite’s mound
or a bee’s hive or bird’s nest?


Part of an ongoing series that I have not worked on in a while and lately have felt that I need to get back to.

Time for a power-line hunt.

  1. This evening, I’m thinking you’re talking apples and oranges. Hives and mounds are homes. Poles and wires are conduits for communication, for electricity. What is the bee and termite equivalence?


    • Apples and oranges both are fruit–both grow on trees.

      All encrustations of our existence.

      Perhaps the ants complaint of their neighbors pheromonal pollution, their ceaseless dancing in the sky…


  2. I see trees limbed, skinned and strung out across the landscape in straight lines, bound with heavy cable and thin wires. Rooted in concrete. Powerful. Stoic. Burdened but not bent. A theme I keep forgetting and remembering again. Awesome photograph!
