What a tangled web we weave . . .

Recently while photographing a building in the Melbourne suburb of Richmond it occurred to me that so many lovely old suburban buildings have become hidden behind a vast web of electrical wiring. Here is a building I noticed in Richmond followed by a number of pictures (not too many, I hope) from around South East Asia. As you will see from the South East Asian pictures we are still rookies in this game. Where you would start to fix a short circuit in some of these wires is impossible to guess. I just love Dr Pornsack’s sign in the final photograph.

Taken on a variety of cameras from a compact Ricoh and Canon to a Nikon D700 with Zeiss lenses.

I have no idea where I took this.

How about this view from the balcony in Saigon

Not the way to show off your new building.

If you can make your way through the wires you can visit Dr Pornsack. Even stay for a night it seems.
