Those are electrical wires... Our electric grid is not really as organized as one would ideally want. Hence, we have main electric lines that carry the transformers and huge volts of electricity and from there, the people just attach additional wires to their establishments in the shortest possible way (usually a straight line)

The end result is series of wires criss-crossed over streets...

I'm Andrew and I come from the Philippines but I have chinese blood running through my veins. I love shooting photographs of Mother Earth and Mother Nature. Unfortunately, I've been out of the hobby for quite some time now and I'm just beginning to enjoy it once again. Most of my shots will be here in my own country. So come and see the Philippines, through my pictures, the way I see it in my eyes. ^_^v Thanks for viewing! Ratings and/or comments are very much appreciated! I have so much more to learn.
