Light fight

I just had to do this. Couldn't resist. It's just not in me. These two lamps in the French Quarter of New Orleans seemed to be just staring at me as I came walking down the side walk. Look at them -- they look the same, but their light source is as different as it can be. One is as ancient as they comes. The other the most modern.

Then it occurred to me that that sign was comment on the time. I'll let you fill in the words

I suppose somewhere, we, as humans, took a wrong turn.

I like the humor and the message in this photo.

I wonder how many people had really stop and really took a good look at these lights with a good chuckle?

human errors can be funny at times.

I suppose they depend on the new bulb for illumination and the old flame for character. Nice photography.

It is sort of ironic.

so glad you didn't resit! this is a BRILLIANT shot, I love photos that go beyond the first glance, and make a statement, or ask a question, or both, like this one. GREAT!
