Thematic Photographic 374 - Lightbulbs

Neon brilliance
London, ON
August 2015
There's a compact fluorescent bulb in our upstairs bathroom that's been burned out for longer than I dare admit. It's a somewhat specialized bulb, so what I really should do it take it over to the hardware store to match up a replacement. Instead, I consign my wife to darker-than-necessary moments when she's getting up and ready for the day. She's prettier than I am, so she deserves more light than I'm giving her.

Bad Carmi.

I'm posting this week's theme, lightbulbs, as a reminder to myself to a) replace the damn bulb and b) shoot more pictures of lightbulbs, too. Because they're somewhat fascinating, being their own sources of light and all. And challenging to shoot. That they make an oddball topical choice just seals the deal in my book. Oddball always makes for a fun time through the lens.

Your turn: Take a pic - or many pics - reflective of this week's theme (lightbulbs, remember?) then share on your blog or website. Leave a comment here letting everyone know where to find it. Visit other participants to keep the fun going, and repeat through the week if inspiration strikes again. For more background on how Thematic works, click here. And please accept my thanks for participating. Because this little photo thing of ours brings me great joy. Strange, that.

Hi, Carmi. The red neon is really eye-catching!
Not all of my lights are bulbs, but they all caught my eye... They're here
