In Petaluma Photo Musings…I raised a question as to the identity and origins of the metal ornamentals atop certain street poles downtown.
For a time, I thought they might be a new kind of Wi-Fi or cell phone antenna.
Several and repeated inquiries produced no answers. No one seemed to know; therefore, I considered the usual names for unidentified objects…
- Petaluma Thingy
- Theatre District Thingamabob
- Downtown Doo-hickey
- Butter & Eggs Thingamajig
But such pedestrian names are not sufficient for this unique downtown decoration…
I was perplexed! How will I identify it? Frankly, I was about ready to abandon the project until…I received an e-mail that, as it turns out, offered a most likely explanation: “The ‘sculptures’ are cleverly disguised antennae put up by me to connect to the Mothership.”
Is it possible? Could it be?
Well, when I went to examine them again…sure enuf! OMG!
Case closed! Mystery Solved!
