PhotoHunt#55 Electric

It would be really nice to see no electric wires and/or electric posts in my pictures. I just feel that they are just so distracting but I cannot do much about it.


These pictures were taken during Davao City's annual celebration of the Kadayawan Festival which happens every 3rd week of August. Some of the worries that floral float owners have to contend with during the floral float parade are the low-lying electric wires traversing above the streets which could cause not only damage to the floats but could also cause untoward accidents to the sightseers. This is why marshals and spotters were there to prevent these things to happen.

Great idea for the theme. The floats all look so festive. Would be a shame if they got hit by low lying wires.

Think of the electricity that gets used that courses through those electric wires. A necessary "evil" these days, I'm afraid.

I agree-- I am not fond of a sky laced with electrical wires, either. It's so ugly. Oh well! I guess if we didn't have them, we wouldn't be posting photos on blogs and commenting about them! lol!

I frequently wish there were no electric wires or posts in my pictures. It seems like they interfere in the most gorgeous sunsets around here.

The floats were very beautiful.

I'm so used to seeing the wires that if you hadn't pointed them out, I wouldn't have noticed.

I was looking at the colorful floats, it wasn't until I finished reading that I noticed the wires. Enjoy your week ahead :-)
