Photo Hunt - Electric

The theme for this week's Photo Hunt is electric. So here's an electric light, well a floor lamp with a textured shade. Good lord I didn't even stretch the theme!

Oh well, sometimes straightforward take on the theme works just as well.

Happy weekend.

I wouldn't have known what it was if you hadn't said. And still I'm not convinced!

That's an interesting shot. Almost looks like a charcoal drawing. Happy weekend.

Brita said...

An interesting shot and an interesting lamp, if you say so.

It's a combination of eerie and classical shot. Nice take!

Good choice. Those electric lamps, in one form or another have helped us all educate ourselves :)

I'm glad you added an explanation... I thought it was an electrical spirit!

No need to stretch the theme. The image is fascinating.

No stretch?!? Very cool post-modern electric image - I love it!

Love the photo of Robyn below too. What a beauty.

You may not have stretched the theme, but you managed to stretch the imagination ~ very unusual perspective. ThanX for the eXplanation!

Well, if you hadn't told me it was an electric lamp, I wouldn't have guessed what it was. I love the textures and shapes, it almost looks ghostly to me. I did "stretch" the theme, but not out of shape.

catsynth said...

This was a great theme that can be interpreted in different ways. I initially saw your photo as an abstract representation of "electric" before reading the description. It's a cool black-and-white texture.

Very interesting processing.

Hopefully I will be able to post mine soon. Having server problems again.

Nice photo and interesting effect. Didn’t manage to visit in time. Internet was down for almost a week since last weekend.
