You have such a unique take on things; such a pleasure -- it looks like a sculpture against the sky, really draws your eye up. And there is something about a blue sky after some grey days that is super special. (People down here really miss that feeling!)

Robin said...

Oooh, such a beautiful blue sky. Love that shade.

Hi Martha, I really like this industrial look against the blue sky, have a good weekend.

Diane AZ said...

Beautiful! Interesting apparatus, reminds me of a yo-yo clown toy made from fabric circles. :)

Such a beautiful blue, and an interesting shot.
Here the sky is gloomy and it's dropping a load of white stuff on us again.

The insulators create an interesting shape against your rare blue sky. Nice shot.

Is blue here today and 54F. Almost a heat wave. But still snow and ice on the ground.

Gotta be quick with your camera to capture the blue skies this time of year. :) I'm glad the sun is shining for you, Martha!

Carver said...

That's great. It looks like modern art against the sky.

A wonderful sky Martha! Is it some boat things in the foreground?

I have more Budapest pictures ;)

It sure would be nice to see a sky that shade of blue!

Barb said...

You are so good at making me wonder: "What's that?" Like a sculpture against the blue sky.

My grandfather used to run the LADPW plant at Cottonwood, and that's probably why I look at electric insulators with a certain amount of fondness. I even got the Beloved Spouse to remove some of the old ones left from the original knob and tube wiring in our house, so that I could put them to some use or other (still haven't done so, though). My grandmother made a planter out of one from the power plant, and I still use it for a Christmas cactus. I'm not sure what the ones you show could be used for once they're discarded, but I do love the shot!

Oh, that blue, blue sky looks so great to us Seattlites, home to gray days without end, seemingly. Great, thrilling shade of blue for us!
