every which way, originally uploaded by Aaslestad.

Sometimes taking pictures of/in Staunton actually means talking pictures of wires, all sorts. i’m always reminded of the movie Crumb when the cartoonist describes how he photographed and drew all types of wires and noise and such in order to better populate the backgrounds and corners of his images. There is no doubt that all the wires and signage and flags and poles and vehicles and so on can get in the way of seeing buildings, other times they seem to become a focal point of their own. In this photo I like the way the curved line in the pavement seems to swerve around the electric pole. Of course, there are fewer wires on the part of Beverly Street that was the subject of the “big dig” a few years back.  Now I cant remember what it was like before.

I think I’ll make a category and call it wires.
