two worlds collide

I've posted quite a few pictures of this tea plantation in Ujitawara recently, but I've always tried hard to exclude the more intrusive signs of civilization. This time however, I wanted to show you the monstrous electricity sub-station that sits right on top of it.

Despite the obvious contrast, there is a strange harmony, too . . a fascinating find.

I can't complain about the electric lines in Japan. The reliability of the service is remarkable. It far surpasses that of the USA. I saw a public television presentation on the infrastructure here which compared the two countries.

A neat shot. You did well in avoiding all the poles and wires in the series.
