@subway5411, I'm well aware of that motivation mode, incandescent streetlights here are disappearing due to cheap LEDs. I plan to make a brochure explaining how dire it is to keep them, maybe I'll do it to some MV towns too.
Good idea, although it is basically inevitable that they will be replaced with LED, especially if they do a bulk purchase.
I’d be more motivated with saving as many fixtures as possible, personally.

Luckily with those, you can screw a filament LED in the existing fixtures.

Got some photos of some lights in my area, including some that I fear will not be around for long.

Stood my light pole back up in it's new home, hung an MV security light, and hooked temporary power (extension cord) up so I could get it lit up.

3 things today:
* Put up some Christmas lights.
* Re-installed a 1xF32 fluorescent on the house (had taken it down for painting)
* Converted a 2xF96 strip to LED (I'm quite impressed. nice upgrade.)

Today I went through a couple boxes of T12 fluorescent lamps and brought a few EOL ones out for disposal. The rest will be used for the rapid start T12 fixtures in my garage, since they’re just common Phillips Altos.

I also saw some more F32T8 fixtures at my school being retrofitted with LED.

I don’t collect lighting, however I have always been interested!
I enjoy photography, making videos, and will be here to photograph street and outdoor lighting.

Other interests include hiking, nature, biking, as well as identifying and photographing birds and plants.

Got a pretty decent score from my local Restore yesterday, mainly consisting of slightly older Incandescent, fluorescent, and a few LEDs with big heatsinks.

If it's the same one as we have, it's a lovely lamp. I have always been impressed with the build quality from Iwasaki  :hps:

And I've started on a spreadsheet of our collection, with this lamp as the first entry.
