I've moved this down to our Editors (Photoshop, etc.) Forum, where you may find some tips.

You'll probably want to use the Clone Stamp tool if your editor has one.

This search may help:

JimC is right the clone stamp is most likely the way to go. With smaller objects such as phone lines the "healing Brush" in photoshop works well. Then of course there is always the option of replacing the background entirely or blurring it into oblivion It really all depends on the original photo.
