The Weekend in Black and White


No 'artistic' photo from me this week, just a shot of an unusual object.
This is one of a few sun-and-wind powered street lights in a residential area of Killybegs, a fishing town in Co Donegal.


Much more interesting photography can be found through the links on the Home Page - it's worth a visit.

I think this makes a very interesting photograph. I didn't ever realize street lamps were wind or sun powered anywhere.

maybe not artwork, but yet it is interesting. Never seen anything like that before. I have some sundriven lamps on my balcony, but they don´t last the whole night.

WOW!!! This one is REALLY neat...I love it. Surely wish I could hop a plane right now with my fiddle in tow (I used to go over to the Willy Clancey Music School in the summers) and come see it in person. Very interesting.

A wind and solar-powered street lamp! Amazing sight!

It really is an interesting object. The clouds made it more an interesting photo.

Hello Dragon, wind energy, despite being quite old, is slowly gaining ground.
Have a nice weekend

I've never heard of such a thing, interesting concept. Why not take advantage of the wind??!!

It looks more like a scientifc robot than a street light!

It is unusual indeed, looks so like those old time magazines on ufos, lol! Always love your perspective.

Kisses and our love to you guys.

PS: No rush for answering my question, dear, take your time! ;)
