My driveway "Street-light".

My driveway "Street-light".

Click to view full size image

I installed this driveway light back in early September. Back then the fixture was a small lunch-box and it had a 36W CF Bulb. However, that started looking peaky very soon, so I installed this self-made fixture back in November. It's currently running a 40W incandescent appliance bulb with reduced heat output. It works very well. It is set on a daily-light sensor so it comes on when it gets dark. (Just like an ordinary photo-cell system.) What do you think?

Haha, who knows.

Streetlights are most often overlooked by society as we go about in life. I have had an interest and fascination for them since I was very little. I love drawing detailed city-scapes and the streetlights are my signature. They always play an important role in my drawings. Like Bob Ross' clouds.

This just runs off of a house-hold plug.

That is still there. I have to straighten it a little as the pole sagged under the weight of the fixture, but I don't have plans yet to replace that one.

How do you know your neighbor is a lighting geek:
1. Once every few weeks you see him bring home massive amounts o fluorescent tubes and you never see him carry any of them out.
2. You always see bright flashing colorful lights from his windows during nighttime.
3. In his back yards he has 1 to 5 street lights hanged on sheds or houses to light up their yard or driveway on demand.
4. You can see him always play with old fixtures in his yard during summer time, he hoses hem down, cleans them.
5. And most importantly, you know you have a guy next to you that will sort all of your lighting issues for you, oh, you just let him
I know my neighbors see me play with fluorescent tubes pretty much all the time, and when my neighbor asked me whether I had any spare 36 watt tubes to give him because he didn't want to buy any, I asked him if his fixtures are old and does he need 40 watter t12? He said it would be better but he understands there are no t12 tubes to buy, nowhere, so I tell him wait her a minute, I brought him 4 NOS Tungsram F40T12s daylight in original sleeves and his jaw dropped. He asked where the hell do I source them? I said from old schools, etc. He later bought 10 more tubes from me for 50 euros (he gave it to me, I could have gave him the tubes for free, but he insisted, so I took it lol)

New lighting technologies is a pity fest everywhere you look. From LEDs that last only for two months, to a never-ending global starvation of t8 fluorescent tubes.
We shall reinforce ourselves with good old full mercury t12s and HIDs made to surpass one's life, and give them all the middle finger ;
