In our ongoing quest for cell phone coverage and network access at all times, companies must erect cell phone towers across the land. While their presence often signifies coverage for our beloved phones, some people see them as eyesores that painfully stick out and ruin landscapes. To combat this, some companies have attempted to ‘disguise’ cell phone towers to better blend in with their surroundings. This initiative has resulted in varying levels of success.

There are entire websites dedicated to mapping these towers, such as Waymarking and CellTowerPhotos. What do you think of these attempts at concealment? Do you prefer to just see a plain tower or do you support companies’ attempts to blend in with their surroundings as best as possible?
