Being an electrical engineer, I love anything that sparks, buzzes, or glows. These are most excellent and I'm particularly fond of the first. I've had this idea for a shot in my head for months and this might just be the inspiration to go get it (nothing dangerous).

Very crisp image.

Frank de Jol said...

Perfect shots !

Sandra said...

amazing details! I very much like the diagonal lines!...

Irene said...

Exellent! Love the details, and mono makes them more interesting, I think.

diane said...

Good topic for mono art. The light makes them .

Dragonstar said...

I really like the first one, so clear and sharp.

I like the first one too. Unusual subject for a photo - the strong graphic lines and diagonals make a really punchy image.

James said...

I like the top one best but both are very good.

Carver said...

I love monochrome shots that show details like these.

Suzi Smith said...

wow, the first one zings... 'look at me' sort of thing
the 2nd subtly waits and gradually works its charm!
I like!

have to laugh at woody... "nothing dangerous" makes it all the more intriguing!

Great photos! Julie, you should charge us for all your work.

awarewriter said...

I like the first one Julie. Then again, I can't make up my mind because the second photo has me interested as well.

Ann said...

Wonderful lines and light in the first one. Great in b&w.

Piyush said...

Amazing details Julie, especially the first shot!

uncertainhorizon said...

Mary Ann said...

You've done a great job of taking a common thing that would have gone unnoticed by most and made it glorious.

Common objects that we don't think twice about suddenly acquire a new dimension when you concentrate on shape and form in Black and white.

Amanda said...

Very industrial. I really miss not having a railway close by! They tracks and cables make for great subjects. Great job!

Shelle said...

what beautiful clear shots, not that all your photos aren't clear but I guess it's the contrast of the b&w. They've made a great subject!

Marka said...

That's the sort of stuff I find myself taking pictures of, and then having to explain to those with me why I'm taking pictures of wires. Cheers!

Ann said...

Congrats on making the wall.

Julie said...

Taa ... yes, I noticed that.
