This is my response to Jennifer Nichole Wells’s One Word Photo challenge: Attic, Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Doors and Windows Continued, and a late entry for Norm Frampton’s December 24th, Thursday Doors.
Who do they think they’re fooling? Even in the fading light this cell phone tower, camouflaged with artificial foliage, has a hard time blending with its surroundings. It looks like a giant bottle cleaning brush or prickly Q-tip.
Since attempts to disguise these things as trees always seem to fail, perhaps it would be best to embrace their artificial nature rather than unsuccessfully try to hide it. I would love to see at least some made into fantastical sculpture like the Montjuïc Telecommunications Tower in Barcelona which doubles as a sundial.
Cell phone towers seem to be a permanent part of our future. What do you think about their aesthetic role?
