Odd Shots On Monday


I showed a leaning telephone pole last Thursday, as part of another picture.
I thought it might be a good time to show more of it.
It really does lean like that. All the wires lead off from one side, like a half-strung maypole. I wouldn't want to live in the small houses below it!

For a wonderful Odd Shot, please visit our host Katney. I'm sure you'll enjoy it!

I do love your dragons and am very tempted to collect some myself.

Not an uncommon sight around here.
I am glad our lines are underground.

It is easy to fix - a bit of Photoshop and everybody is happy.

"Leaning post - what leaning post?"

John said...

Nice odd shot. It`s looks like a spider web :)

That's amazing. I can't help but wonder if it's leaning from the ground or if it's just bent. Then I wonder if it's always been like that. Hmmmm....

Jan said...

Looks very dangerous.

Lily Hydrangea said...

Nor would I ! Good one!

raf said...

Good choice, Dragonstar! Does have a precarious lean to it and odd that its left unattended.

CherryPie said...

It doesn't look very safe...

Jientje said...

Neither would I, ewww!

Dr.John said...

I think if I lived there I'd be worried too.

JC said...

That pole surely carries it's fair share of the load ;-) I've often wondered why all lines aren't under ground...

Poopsie Blue said...

I think I'd worry during a gale!

Helena said...

That's weird. Do all the birds sit on it sideways ?? :)

babooshka said...

It could be the leanig tower of maypole. A oddshot too. Great choice.

NESSA said...

It made me think of a circus tent being erected.

A. said...

It would certainly bother me if I had to live under it!

James Higham said...

Is it windy there?

PixieKatten said...

I would want to live in that house either!! Never seen anything like it. Great odd shot. :)

I thought of you and this post as we drove through Oregon yestarday. In one area, beyond an embankment, were a line of poles at the same angle. I wondered why.

Wow - one big blow could mean serious trouble for lots of homes... especially the one the post might fall on. Very interesting shot, indeed.
