e N D of the line

e N D


i stopped on the road, looked up at the dangling line, looked down the road to see if there was another power line pole, and noted there wasn’t. that’s when i realized civilization as we know it ends in jackson county, arkansas. right there on the end of that line.

It has to end somewhere. That is such a cool image.

Is this when we say “all good things must come to an end???” I just Googled that quote and found out Chaucer said some variation of it in 1374! 🙂

Somehow I imagined they would just continue forever, if necessary doing a wide sweep round to meet up again

Truly the end of the line. I like how you presented this so it looks desolate and abandoned.

it truly is desolate and abandoned

when i say i stopped in the road, i mean there wasn’t a soul around for miles and miles

An image of other times, there are only those who are Indian or the outlaws intent on cutting the cables.

Et oui, tout a un début et une fin ….

it is elegant in its simplicity and i like the thought about shadows, Sherri.

Well photographed, in Holland all cables are underground.

An excellent image and observation. We can’t really get along without electricity. When I was young, long ago, I remember one farm family that did. They used oil lamps for their lighting needs. That was unusual even then.

you found the end of the line Sherri… they could have at least rolled the end up and hung it on the pole… cool shot….peter:)
