Power lines are not the most desirable elements we want to have in a picture… in fact, photographers are trying hard to avoid them, by taking different angles or even alter their shots in post processing.

However, we have to admit that they are part of our daily life… ubiquitous – so to say, and depending on the photography, sometimes we have to accept them…

Bed Time - birds on power lines by Tatiana Travelways

These are Bromeliads plants growing naturally on power lines in Mexico and other tropical areas – aren’t they cute?

I have many pictures featuring power lines but this will be the last one for the post:

Technology Vs. Nature by Tatiana Travelways

I called it “Technology vs. Nature” and I took it in the desert, near Death Valley, California. I just liked the contrast of the elements 🙂
