Power and its presence in the hundred years’ past boomtown of Butte, Montana.
Uptown spires / heights may not be as advertised.
Splitting the Hillside "M" of Montana Tech.
Headframe gateway atop "the richest hill on Earth".
Tangled supply chain.
A gentleman's bet. The spiral staircase races the mountaintop to the sky.
Electricity arrived early to the Copper King Mansion, one of Butte's 6000+ listed buildings that together form the largest National Historic Landmark District in the United States.
Implements of power at the intersection of Main and Broadway.
Mercury / heavy metal.
End of the line.
Power Wash overlooking the Berkeley Pit, a one-time open pit copper mine that is now the site of the largest Superfund clean-up in the country.
Electricity descending / electricity submerged.
Interesting you should choose powerlines as a theme. The day after you left, a tree across the street crashed in a windstorm, taking out the neighbourhood powerlines in the tumble to the ground. Live wires galore.
An excellent collage: captured the quintessence of Butte.
How does your Mother get the euphonious appellation “Hex”??
Thanks Christopher. “Hex”, I think, is a corruption of her alter ego Hexakali, from Spies in the Oilsands. She’s just like everyday Lori except that she speaks in beat poetry and makes rather less sense.
