Popularly called Telephone Poles, they are properly called Utility Poles because they carry not only telephone wires, but also electrical lines, television cables, fiber optic, and once carried telegraph lines. Like snowflakes, no two are alike. I find the diversity fascinating. Utility poles can have any number of cross arms and may not match the configuration of others in the same row. They can have no arms with just an insulator in the top or side, they can have one arm with an insulator on one end or both ends or with a third insulator on top of the pole. There can be one, two , three, four, five, or more cross arms on a pole. Sometimes some arms are rotated from the others and sometimes they cantilever off to one side. They are covered with insulators, amplifiers, transformers, tubes and pipes, boxes and gadgets, street lights and other lighting. Although not by company spec, they are sometimes covered with garage sale adds, lost pet announcements, and all manner or signage, staples, and nails. Connecting them to the ground are guy wires, and sometimes hoses. Between the poles, which may look completely different from the one on either side, are wires, lines, and cables. These also have a variety of accessories hanging off them. There are signal amplifiers, and switches, clamps, various objects to reduce swaying in the wind and increase visibility to aircraft, and a curious loop that I never understood. Then there are the various broken poles. Along back roads, I've seen broken poles no longer resting on the ground but hanging from the lines and cross bars with the poles completely missing. They clutter streets, line roads, cross fields. They are everywhere. They've ruined many a photo, so I decided to photograph the poles and wires themselves, thus making them the subject rather than an eyesore.
