Saturday Photo Scavenger Hunt - Technology

Photo Hunt 40: Technology

Theme: Technology | Join the Photo Hunt | View Blogroll | Visit participants.

With the proliferation of cell phones, these towers are popping up everywhere inside of city limits where once they were on rural farms, water towers and hilltops. There were 18,000 in 1994 to more than 175,000 (2005) now according to Wired News. Without additional towers, calls are lost and reception suffers. There's a lot of debate also about "Not In My Backyard but Why Is My Service Crappy" placements of these towers, cancer causing radio waves and debate about cellular carriers placing towers hidden inside of steeples and disguised with fake tree limbs and foilage.


I joined the Saturday Photo Scavenger Hunt hosted by TN Chick. You too can play: Join the Photo Hunt There's a different theme every Saturday, and it's a lot of fun visiting the community of participants.
