Let there be light

Gratitude Day #18
I'm thankful to those scientist who invented electric light and those many workers who manufacture light bulbs and lamps and all their components. Can you imagine reading by lamp light or candles? It's fun occasionally but I wouldn't want it on a regular basis.
This is really an interesting photo. I like the tiny little lines of light and the bokeh

Grateful indeed. ...as I sit here with my iPad in front of the tv with the lights on.
A nice reminder image!

Oh, yes, where would we be without it?!

interesting colours from the light globe

Very well said. I’m grateful for electricity too

Your everyday items are a timely reminder of how much we have and how fortunate we are. Much of what much l have, l don't need...yet it gives me pleasure.

Great shot and POV. A simple flick of a switch without a second thought.

Indeed! The things we take totally for granted!

I like it, something we use everyday but don't see it's form and beauty

And without electricity you wouldn't have your digital camera! :-D

Kathy so often we take things like this for granted

Nice angle light and what would life be without this great invention, I too am very grateful.

Thank you one and all for your kind comments. I spent one night last month without electricity. I was warm enough, thank goodness, but spent the evening beside an oil lamp. That was hard and I don't care to repeat it any time soon.

when i was little, we didn't have electricity at home and the only time to read was when everyone else is quiet, plus we were not allowed to read longer in the lamplight because apparently that's bad for the eyes. so i would bring a candle in my little corner and read with the bedsheet over. you can imagine how many holes my bedsheet has had. luckily i never burned the house down or i'd be in trouble with my father. 🥴

When we were without electricity due to hurricane Sandy or whoever, I remember getting all my reading and such done while it was still light out. We did have a lantern and some candles but it wasn't as easy to read by those. When the neighbor got a generator and was able to hook us up for some small electrical use it was so nice to have a lamp on at night again! Good shot!

Great shot of the light and lamp.
( We have fences ; most around protected nature area`s. And modern windmill and powerlines too. I try to avoid them captured in my pic.`s. )

@summerfield Vikki I am always awed by the stories you tell of your life. I'm so grateful I had a "dull" suburban life but it tends to let me take many things for granted.
@olivetreeann I know what you mean. Candles and flashlights don't always seem to give out enough light. I was very surprised this oil lamp did so well.
@pyrrhula Thank you Ferry.
