Gallery: Cell Phone Towers Pretending To Be Treesby Jebediah Ree, infrastructurist.com
It’s Friday, and our lazy, lazy brains crave something frivolous, highly visual, and moderately amusing. So here’s a pictorial pageant of cell phone towers appallingly disguised as trees. It’s nature — just as wireless companies intended!
This phenomenon is global and many years old at this point. I, for one, still chuckle when I see them — awkward and ominous and hilariously wrong-looking among living trees. They’re a bit reminiscent of Ralph the Wolf (the Looney Tunes character who’s the timeclock punching adversary of Sam the Sheepdog) when he would try to dress up as a sheep and try to mingle with the flock. Just let us deal with seeing a cell tower, for God’s sake. Better yet: design a visually appealing tower that doesn’t require a leafy toupee. (Has anyone tried this?)
Lots more fakeness after the jump:
