Mobile phone tower

Ridiculously, I felt almost surreptitious taking this photo. I've got no evil intent - I'm just interested by the manufactured techno-geometries of the tower against the drifting watercolours of the late afternoon sky.

I thought it blogworthy because it is just a bit of scenery from daily life in 2008 - years from now these will probably be quaintly obsolete. Reflecting on what teenagers consider to be essential to daily life, my teenage years are tinged with the quaintly obsolete - how DID we survive without IM, the net, social networking, mobile phones (cellphones) and so on and so forth? It's amazing really. But we did. And here we are.
