Wow looking through my photos I'm surprised how good I am about not having lines or poles in my shots. But then I thought this thread was about removing them from your shots!

I waited for the train to scoot up to this spot to get the poles in

while another RP photog shot here at a later date and seemed to work to exclude them. To each their own.

Anytime I shoot in Lancaster at the L&C office, I have to be mindful about the poles and either shoot around them or just shoot in spite of them

That last one left some to be desired and my hunch is that the new, retro paint scheme edged it into the database.

A few more

Heck, probably half my shots in Toledo have some kind of pole line in them

Rather than link all those, here's a shot that follows more the original idea (intentionally adding the pole line to the composition):

Dave, consider yourself lucky to be able to shoot in areas that aren't riddled with code line and poles.

I recall there are some "wire glint" shots on RP, but I have no clue who shot them or how to find them. Anyone recall them?

Like Steven's above but with the wires more predominant, and I think in color.
Here is my wire glint....

Thanks, guys. I was thinking of both of these (and one other?) when I asked about wire glint. Nice to see them again.

What a lot of telegraph poles

Here in the UK (and the parts of Europe that I frequent) there are hardly any left alongside railway lines, but there are loads and loads of catenary poles.

One thing about Code line is they keep the railroad trimming the brush and trees, Thats a good thing.

I don't have lots of pole shots either, but here's one that's a bit interesting:

No pattern to 'em really....I guess when the terrain looks like this, you put 'em where you can!

I have quite a few with poles in them but only a few where they are actually of interest, not just a distraction.

Reviving an old thread just because I finally ran across one of the shots that was in the back of my mind when I was originally pondering it.
