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.
