Light bulb - TP


We're turning up the lights with Carmi's lightbulb 
( a most Eureka experience) as this week's theme for



"You have to find what sparks a light
in you so that you
 in your own way 
can illuminate the world." 
Oprah






The light bulb commands an important duty, inconspicuously.




Yes, light bulbs are usually unnoticeable in all their shining glory-





What did the light bulb say to the work of art?

Let me light your way.



Are light bulbs really so unremarkable?



(about 8:30 at night sometime in December)
Do you think anyone noticed us? asked the light bulbs.




Grouped together they're a bit showy.




and stunningly bold.



Thank goodness for lighting right?


Just maybe these light bulbs will receive more attention-
but we all know the chandelier will take all the credit!


"When you have exhausted all possibilities, remember this, you haven't."
Thomas A. Edison


Enjoy your day and remember to notice the light bulbs in your world, okay?

Something I am often grateful for - but rarely stop to see their beauty. Thanks for the reminder.

These shots of yours are real eye-openers, Karen. I especially like the glittering bird-cage. And as an addict of both oysters and the sea, I was fascinated by the slogan above the counter in picture 5!
