Theme Day: Electricity


The first of the month has arrived, quickly but it's here and that means it's Theme Day here on City Daily Photo. This months theme is Electricity. This is one of the switch boxes for train signals close to my home.

Take some time to see some great work by some wonderful photographers from around the world. Click below:

This switch box can't be seen everywhere that's for sure! Unique!

Allison said...

Interesting look south... nice to see you again, Randy!

Rizalenio said...

Very cool. It looks like a character from tribe too.

Kathy said...

Even the train switches are artistic in Santa Fe!

Rambling Round said...

That switchbox is a work of art itself!

Lúcia said...

It's cool to see unexpected things like this one! ;-)

VP said...

I wouldn't have guessed that! Very funny!

Kate said...

So funny, Randy! Check out my photo for today!!

Haha! I almost did a double take Randy, I think this might be a first. A 'snap' situation for you and Kate!! It's still such an excellent way to hide an ugly electricity box!!
btw I hope all is going well with your course project, have you still got a long way to go?

I like that they paint the utility boxes. It takes a drab object & transforms it into art. Hope your week is going good, Randy. Sorry to hear you were stuck doing homework all weekend, but it will all pay off in the end. :)

I love spontaneous art like this!

Everything is so creative and artistic there!

Sharon said...

It's decorated perfectly to fit into the Santa Fe style.

What a great Southwestern-y design!

Luis Gomez said...

AWESOME! Love it Randy!

Ron said...

He looks like he could be a DJ back in the "old days of vinyl".

Teresa said...

Only in Santa Fe! This is cool...

Jarart said...

Turning an object like that into a piece of art is a great idea and something we have come to expect in Santa Fe. Great find for the theme.

EG Wow said...

You and Kate must be on the same wave length! :))

'Reddy Kilowatt', Native American Style!

Magpie said...

Wow! Too pretty to be something functional.

When you are rolling through on Amtrak, this leaves no doubt in your mind what city you are in.

Love it Randy!

RedPat said...

Fabulous Randy!

Now why do I like yours better than I do mine???? :-)

I enjoy painted utility boxes in Auckland, and it's good to see them from elsewhere. Very nice, and deserving of a double posting (Kate).

Michaele said...

Neat! I will go check out the others

Dawn said...

Like it! Very creative:)

Lowell said...

That's a switch box that I've never seen...it's fantastic!

Regina K said...

cool switchbox!

La Principessa Errante said...

So love that cities are starting to realize that art can be on most any surface, and enhance the environment. Fun shot.

Jack said...

Isn't that a good one!

Marty said...

c'est vraiment original !

Carraol said...

That box is a great example of street art! Funny to see the same subject used by two different members. Cheers for that!
