Transmission Station, Mt Taylor REVISITED

I first posted a few weeks ago, about this transmission station atop Mt Taylor in Canberra. I visited again last week (and encountered a rather brazen magpie along the way!) I was surprised to find that a LOT had changed since my last trip to the top. The scruffy-looking, graffiti-ridden squat building is no more as attempts have been made to beautify this structure with some street art.

Unfortunately, someone has since graffitied again over the top of the murals however I thought it would be interesting to post again with the transmission station’s ‘fresh look’…

Transmission Station, Mt Taylor

More like a Thursday Door, rather than doors this week. Anyhow, I went walking up Mt Taylor on a recent visit home to Canberra, and I stumbled across this transmission station at the very top. What caught my eye was the juxtaposition of the beautiful nature and view, with this rather ugly, squat, graffitied building. I did manage to snap a closeup of the one and only door that is actually quite pretty. Sometimes you have to look a bit deeper to find the beauty…enjoy!

Stretched out cotton balls
shroud the valleys in a thick blanket of white
mountain tops peek through, standing tall
imaginary fingers drag their way along the clouds
creating layers and
slowly plucking away the wisps
until each strand has gone.
Revealing the city below.
