Woot! Thanks a million Janine! :D
If the pole was tall enough the corkscrew will be to prevent vortex shedding, although that’s usually just an issue with hollow metal poles. It splits up the wind as it blows by to stop low pressure building on the other side and causing the pole to bend.
See…. I knew someone much smarter than I would know why! Awesome! Yes, this area gets very high winds, and the poles are fashioned in sets of two, positioned like the letter ‘V’ on a minimal anchor point. It makes sense now you wouldn’t want a lot of twisting due to winds, or vortex shedding. Thanks a million!
These remind me of Christmases when my Dad was around.
Wow… that’s put a big smile on my face. Thank you :)
Happy 100th birthday, Capa!(via gettyimagesarchive)
And thank you so much. I very much appreciate the feedback :)
I love to share the sights I see from the areas I frequent; not a lot of people see the views of Las Vegas like I do :)
