The reason I am so late posting today is because I have not been able to make up my mind on which way to go with this PhotoHunt challenge. Meanwhile, I spent most of today dealing with a different electrical problem, trying to fix my *electric* Gaggia espresso machine. I searched online, got my tools out, and tried a few different suggestions. My machine is now in a bag heading to the dump. I thought of posting a photo of this machine run by electricity but it is just too depresssing. I guess now know what I will be doing with my birthday money this year.
So, it is now early evening and I still can't make up my mind. Since I now need to put all my energy into deciding on a new espresso machine (ideas are welcome), I am not going to dwell on which way to go with this post and instead am going to post all of my ideas.
Views, scenes, and buildings at night lit up by electricity ~ Rome
~ Isola Bella
Music powered by electricity, electric guitars, electric lights & a video of the band powerd by electricity ~ Piazza Anfiteatro, Lucca at night
Abstract photo of electric lights ~ taken in Lerici while sitting outside on my balcony at Hotel Doria and playing with my camera at night.
The lights of Iolani Palace ~ Iolani Palace was the first electrified building in Honolulu and even had electricity before both the White House and Buckingham Palace. Construction of the Iolani Palace was completed in 1882. I would have gone with just this idea but both of these photos are re-posts. I have even posted the second photo twice before and have used it as part of my "glass" PhotoHunt post so I feel like I would be cheating in some way if I had only used this idea.
An electric car ~ I saw the coolest car this summer while in either Florence or Bologna. I am pretty sure it was in Florence but can't remember for sure. I do remember walking by it almost every day. It was tiny and blue. I thought about taking a photo of it many times as I walked by it but just never did. Kicking myself now! So, instead here is another re-post of a photo I posted a year ago of a yellow electric car I saw while staying in Bologna in 2008.
So which way would you have taken this post??
