A collection of lamps and other artificial lighting from around the world.
An Art Deco light fixture in the Palacio de Bellas Artes in Mexico City. Inside the Delirium Pub in Brussels, Belgium. Neon signs in Delhi, India. Increasingly popular are displays of light during the dark winter months in Vancouver. Danish-designed light fixture in the Design Museum in Copenhagen, Denmark. Lights made up of glass fibre optics at the Architecture Institute in Rotterdam, Holland. Globe lights hang from a seahorse light standard light up the palm trees at sunset in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Funky shadows from the pierced light fixture in the Gecko Cafe in Hanoi, Vietnam. An extravaganza of a chandelier in the Cork market, Ireland.The Semana Santa in Antigua has the processions dragging a small generator in order to be lit up at night. Hard Rock Cafe neon guitar sign in Las Vegas, Nevada. Night markets are popular in hotter countries that rely on lighting up the night, especially when the days are too hot to move (Melaka, Malaysia). In a poor country like Myanmar about the only thing lit-up at night in Yangon is the Shwedagon Buddhist temple.Singapore neon hallway. Lit-up barge during the river festival in Phnom Pehn, Cambodia.

Wow Elizabeth-quite a lighting extravaganza! Lots to love in this one
Great selections. Where would we be without neon?!
well we sure did travel the world with albatz adventures again n this post – how fun
I like the chandelier and the seahorse globe lights with the palms – but all so flowing for a culture-rich post on light!!
What a marvelous gallery! I had to look and scroll…over again. So many beauties – love chandeliers. And the famous Danish designed lamp, costs a fortune, but beautiful.
I certainly had fun putting this post together – a little journey into the bright lights of the world. Denmark had me spending time in furniture and lighting stores, something I normally don’t do. But Scandinavian design – it’s amazing.
