I took this photo and a series of photos trying to convey emptiness with a emphasis on pattern. Driving through the desert of California you can get lost in patterns field after field everything in neat little rows lined right up for hundreds of miles. Then occasionally you get blank space like this just open land. At some point this land might have been green but with the incredible California drought everything outside of the pampered lined up fields is dead and brown. This power line taking center stage reminds us of the city's it feeds. It looks strong rooted in the ground by concrete held up by the metal beams used to create it, and there it holds our life lines far above the ground. In this photo I contrasted the large open desert almost untouched by humans, with the very tall patterned metal structure sticking right out of it looking very man made.
