Great title! My heart aches for the poor tree... :-(
Picturit: This is a telephone pole in Searsport in Maine. Telephone poles we don't have in the Netherlands and they always intrigue me how many nails are in them for notifications.
Thank you, Elizabeth.
Astrid.
tree huggers may need to watch out for this, Astrid.

Much used!

There is a kilo of pre-loved hardware there.
Picturit: Indeed, Ray. I always am intrigued by these telephone poles... we don't have those in the Netherlands.
Astrid.
I hope this is a telephone pole and not a tree, Astrid??? But, yes, BRILLIANT title.
Picturit: Thank you, Ginnie. Yes, this is a telephone pole.... I am always impressed with the iron in them...

There must be some symbolism?
Picturit: This is a telephone pole in Searsport in Maine. Telephone poles we don't have in the Netherlands and they always intrigue me how many nails are in them for notifications.
No symbolism at all, Philine, just a handy "bulletin board.
Astrid.
Oh mince ...quelle horreur !!

Thank you, Claudine.

Pourquoi tous ces clous ?
Picturit: This is a telephone pole in Searsport in Maine. Telephone poles we don't have in the Netherlands and they always intrigue me how many nails are in them for notifications. The use it as a bulletin board, Martine.

Ooh! Aah! I don't like the idea, but it is a good picture of the torture. Oh, sorry - I have just read it is a telephone pole alias a dead tree!
Picturit: Indeed so, Lisl. A telephone pole....

More metal than wood!!
Picturit: I had that same thought, Chris. Well it is now more heavy and will not be blown away, maybe..
Astrid.
At least it isn't full of bullet holes grin
Picturit: grin.... some traffic signs are used as a target sad....
Thank you, Bill.
Astrid.
Goh....wat een hoeveelheid spijkers !
Zat er een timmerschool om de hoek ????
Picturit: Je zou het bijna denken, Marjolein. Of dat ze aan het oefenen zijn voor "Timmerdorp". Gewoon een telefoonpaal op de hoek van de straat. Ik kwam hier vaak langs als ik aan de wandel ging. Ik moest er een foto van nemen......
Ik zal eens kijken hoeveel er volgend jaar in zitten wink.

There could be seen some Christian symbology about this Astrid.
Picturit: AHHHH, when you say it like that... this is a very deep thought of which I never thought off....
For me this was just a telephone pole with nails..... in Searsport.

pauvre arbre

Picturit: It is not a living tree, JP.

I have never seen anything like this. Crazy that they are not removed. I am glad to hear it is not a tree.
Picturit: I am surprised, Mary. Don't you have telephone poles and don't they use them to hang notifications on them?? I think it is odd too. And we don't have these poles, with us it is all underground.

A trillion notices went up here. Amazing that each one had to use his own nail.
Picturit: Don't you just love it. It always intrigues me...... those poles are heavy with nails...
Astrid.
Poor tree, I hope it can continue to resist this assault of nails
Picturit: Thia once was a tree, Marie. Now this is a telephone. This is a telephone pole in Searsport in Maine. Telephone poles we don't have in the Netherlands and they always intrigue me how many nails are in them for hanging notifications.

I wonder if the nails and screws help up notices of various sorts "Lost dog", "Gardens weeded" etc? The pole looks to be past its best.
Thank you very much for your visit to my Astrid website. Ginnie has been talking about you for a long time and I am finally enjoying discovering your images. Could you think, next time, to fill the url of your Shutterchance space if you want to comment on an image. A big thank you in advance
Picturit: You are so welcome, Marie and I just went back to your website and I am able to put in my URL. I will see if I can change my wordpress login.
Next time I will leave my URL.
Have a wonderful evening.
Astrid.

een passende titel..Astrid

bij deze verrassende foto

knap gespot

groeten
Picturit: Dank je wel, Willy. Deze telefoonpaal staat op de hoek van de straat wij wij logeerden in Searsport. Ik kwam deze paal elke keer tegen als ik aan de wandel ging.... dat nodigde uit tot fotograferen...
Nog een fijne avond.
Astrid.
an old sign post Astrid... that's no way to treat a tree....petersmile
Picturit: I know, this is a telephone pole... Amazing how many bulletins have been posted on this one....

well, yeh!
Picturit: Not everybody understands it what I showed.... telephone poles like that we do not see too often and in the Netherlands we don't have those poles, everything is underground....

What a strange tradition. It reminds me of coins inserted into a tree trunk at Belvoir Castle.
Picturit: Just look at it like a bulletin board and people staple things on it.... it is close by the road, "everybody" drives by, I was the rare person that walked....
I think putting coins in a tree trunk might be asking for a blessing or wish, like what they do with fountains sometimes.
Astrid.
Well seen and such a spot on title.
Picturit: Thank you, Lotta. I passed this telephone pole when I went for walks.
Astrid.
