Just One Element Would Have Made This...972 views...a great camo site. In December 2009 I photographed this Santa Fe, New Mexico site and made an animated GIF showing what could have been done to hide the antenna. I wasn't happy with the base photo, so I want back in December 2010 and shot a better base photo. This animated GIF shows far more clearly what might have been added to effectively camo this church site.

What is, But What Could Be...736 viewsThis is a special photo of a semi-camo site in Santa Fe, New Mexico. If you click to enlarge it, you'll see a before photo (showing the visible panel antenna in the opening) and after photo simulation of how this site might have been better designed by the carrier. Sometimes it the little things that separate a ho-hum project from a wow project.

cells_nm_santafe_52OldLasVegasHwy_monopine_20091228_DSC_0126.jpg
Sickly Monopine940 viewsOff of the Old Las Vegas Highway outside of Santa Fe, this poorly designed monopine stands out like the sore thumb it is. The branch coverage, branch count, and panel antenna socks are inferior. A properly designed and executed monopine would not all the antenna stand-off arms to be seen, much less be painted a highly visible green.

By the way, in this case, Las Vegas refers to Las Vegas, New Mexico, rather than to Lost Wages, Nevada.

A faux 'faux chimney'582 viewsCingular's faux chimney on the front of a real estate office is lacking the adequate coverage required to truly consider this to be a camouflaged site. Notice the interesting (read: "ugly") cable entry box, and the fact that the panel antenna protrudes above the level of the faux chimney. Not a good design.

Faux 'faux chimney' - A Different Angle365 viewsFrom this angle, Cingular's faux chimney on the front of a real estate office is a good design, but things aren't as they seem. See the view of this faux chimney from the other side to see why its inferior.

Faux 'faux chimney'387 viewsCingular's faux chimney on the rear of a real estate office is a better design than the front faux chimney, yet this chimney suffers from one of the same faults as the front: the panel antenna protrudes above the level of the faux chimney.
