Weekly photo challenge – Urban

I decided to look up. It’s funny how quickly you become accustomed to the mass of cables and wires that are stretched everywhere in Bangkok. When one breaks or needs replacing, a long, skinny, bamboo ladder is put up, sometimes in the middle of the road, while an often unaccompanied repair man shimmies up it.

For me, this photo is about urban necessity and nature – either the tree grew around the cables… or the cables grew around the tree!
