sketchySteven says:

Topic number 113 is a bit late..... sorry for that. The week of January 15 - 21 we'll be looking for and sketching fancy outdoor lamps and light posts. If you know of some fancy light fixtures, sketch those, too. To broaden the topic a bit, you can also look at light poles, phone poles and transmission lines, etc..

Thanks to busbiker/Rodrick for the topic!

Here's some inspiration:

Until I began urban sketching in Los Angeles, I never noticed that many of our light fixtures have what looks like Aladdin's lamp at the top...I wonder if other cities have that? And ubiquitous telephone poles...
