wire and weed : Ferney-Voltaire, FR
If you've followed my photo blogging for any significant amount of time, you know one of the photobloggers I most admire is Debi Cates. Debi lives in West Texas, which is pretty hard scrabble, dusty, dry, and otherwise seemingly average. Debi takes photos of this area of Texas that are simply breathtaking and will blow you away. Take some time to check out her blog. I promise, you won't be disappointed.
One thing knowing Debi has done for my eye is, tuning it to seeing the beauty in what otherwise is easily dismissed as ugly or no longer useful. Like this. She can also take an eyesore, like high-tension electrical wires, and make them a thing of beauty. Like this. She also writes and illustrates fabulous human interest stories. Like this.
Today's photo is my feeble attempt at an homage to Debi. I even managed to get some high wires in the act. Greetings from France and Switzerland, Debi!
