Some interesting caps on top of those utility poles. Lightning arrestors perhaps? I can't imagine anyone would think that adding a decorative fixture on top of a wire ladened pole would make it aesthetically appealing, but oddly it does.
Looks to me like the poles are repurposed, perhaps from a time prior to electrification. Like gas lamp poles?

I doubt that's what they were, the neighborhood was built around 30 years ago, my girlfriend used to tell me how everything on this side of the town used to be just open farm fields where she and other kids used to play.
I can't imagine repurposing such old type of poles for a new neighborhood.

I will inquire about them from the natives.
 
This morning's sunrise on my route for work. The Canadian wildfire smoke abated enough to have a visible sunrise near the horizon, yet temper it's intensity to allow for direct viewing and some detail in the landscape. Also, it was nice to have a bit of cold air move through over the top of the warm rivers and marshes to produce a bit of a moody fog. Like my Mom used to say growing up in Brooklyn, "Sometimes the bus picks you up, sometimes it runs you over".

This morning it picked me up!

Superb, Will.
It could be from 300 Mya, when the planet was far warmer than it is now.
