    So, my wife and I took our dog for a hike this morning in one of the lovelier settings in our area, an agricultural preserve about five minutes outside of our town. It's a place just chock full of very pretty scenery, trees, rolling hills, hay bales, etc, etc, etc. Shots like these are everywhere - a dime a dozen - I took the camera with the 17mm lens intending to shoot pretty stuff, and I did, a little:

    But, what do I find myself fascinated by and spending most of my time photographing? Electrical lines and pond scum, that's what! And I felt a need to process them with some sort of made up infra-red settings to bring out the ominousness of them. What's up with this? It can't be a good sign!

    The photos are interesting, but the most interesting is the title of this thread:thumbup:

    Possibly the thread title is also not a sign of mental health? Or maybe it is? :cool:

    I had an urge to take pics of some power lines today when I was driving and saw a field of them, but I couldn't find a good spot to park. Now I'll have to go back. :).
