Weekly Photo Challenge: Contrast

That afternoon, as I walked out of the town city hall complex, which also houses the municipal library I passed directly under hanging high tension wires overhead of the huge electrical power towers.

I had done this countless times without paying much attention to them however, this time it was different because I had brought my new digital camera with me. These towers are massive and populate a stretch of “no-man’s land” straddled between mostly residential housing or as in this case, between the city hall complex and Centennial Park adjacent the complex.

It was perfect weather for photography because it was overcast which provides a neutral light. What first caught my eye, were the large glass insulator roundels hanging from the side of the tower, so I just snapped a picture of that. Looking around I then captured an image of a triple transformer assembly that looked interesting. Afterwards, I decided to seek more photo opportunities at the nearby park so I headed there before heading home.
