The lamps are going out

3 Feb

Actually these lights are being thrown out as part of the grand makeover. There was a small heap of them outside BHS. I hope they’re going to be sold on and recycled somewhere.  Here’s one in better times.

The weekend in black and white is here.

    Hmm, you'd imagine that might come in handy for an artist.

    Great shapes for a silhouette against the sky. The one on the mud looks very sad – “how are the mighty fallen”!

    The first one is cool picture. Regarding second one, I agree with Dragonstar – the lamp looks very sad:(

    If only these old lamp styles could be given some renewed dignity…Maybe outside the entrance of a museum or art gallery…It seems such a terrible waste to cast them aside…The second photo particularly, suggests neglect and indifference…

    Grab 'em. They're going to be worth something.

    They have a unique look. I wonder what the new ones will look like!

    Kind of sad really, I hope they do get recycled. I bet someone would happily take them and do them up again
