Daily Post Weekly Challenge: Connected


Connected can mean a few different things – it can mean united, linked; joined in a sequence; related by family ties; to communicate between; to link up to an electrical or communications system.

It is the latter that I first thought of.  On a visit to Vietnam a few years ago I was shocked and amazed at their electrical system.  You are accosted at the sight of thick black cables intertwining all over the cities with little supporting them.  Funnily enough the electricity and even more than that, the internet were fast and never faltered the whole time I was there.  How, I am sure they ask the same question as there seems to be no method to it really, just a jumble of black licorice-like cables winding their way through the city streets.

  1. I’d hate to be the Lineman trying to sort that lot out! – Good B&W choice for the challenge 🙂

  2. Wow. Shocked and amazed are the exact words I would use to describe this. What if the wires came down during a storm? Oh, dear….

  3. It’s photos like these that help me see more of the world – I like them more than photos of the nearest UNESCO site (although I love to visit those) – But it’s the everyday things that are different that are so interesting to me. Love this photo! And yes, how do you figure out which line is a problem if one arises? 😉

  6. Power lines – love it. We certainly cannot live without them and we certainly can’t get a decent photo sometimes with them. 🙂 Great for connected.

  8. Wow! I don’t even like having one or two wires around. This is like a spider’s web and truly a sign of connection.

  11. Wow! I had never seen so many electrical wires all at once. Interesting.

  12. The lines are a little deceptive – the government electricians don’t usually remove the lines when they are being replaced (they are so woven into the other live lines they are very hard to untangle.) So they are just left there.
    I’ve seen electricians actually sitting on the thick bundles lines, which is like a mat, while they work on something up there.
    Occupational health and safety isn’t widely recognised here in Sai Gon.
