What a lovely street lamp; it lends elegance to the landscape, and the building with its tile roof and decorative tile nicely complete the photo.

That is a gorgeous street light. Very ornate. I also like the tile work on the house behind it.

Gine said...

A l'ancienne, qui va bien avec le toi et la décoration de la maison. Bien vu !

Love your street lamp and your terrific composition shows it off beautifully. Love the skies and the green and the texture of the roof! Superb! Enjoy your evening, JM!

I love to find old lamps like that - nice!

Gunn said...

I think they look similar to some I have seen on /at Putney Bridge in London. Very pretty, both places.

Randy said...

They look very old world. Nice.

Beautiful in its simplicity! And that is what I call a lamp post! We've got big ugly things with those new lights that don't light anything up!

Dimple said...

The lamp is beautiful and functional; a very good combination!

Inger-M said...

Wow, that's a really pretty streetlamp!

Oh boy. Iron work, terra cotta roof, and tile all in the same photo. I'm in heaven.

Ornate and old fashioned, perfect with the background...

One of my (many) pet peeves is ugly urban lighting. THIS is lovely. And fits the scene.
