Shine on

.

A hat tip (or hardhat tip) to the brave linemen who keep our street lamps working. 

Note the yellow sign (they are on all the lamp posts in my village) which warns "HIGH TENSION. DANGER OF DEATH!"
.
A post for City Daily Photo Theme Day--Street Lamps.
And also for SkyWatch Friday

Yikes, it's not a job for me. Bravo to these men/women that risk their lives in these types of jobs.

Not a job for me either!!! I always wondered how they changed the light bulbs in such high lamps.

I would have loved to post something like this but our eletrics are below the pavement! :-) And I never did catch a change of lightbulbs...

He is brave indeed. I wonder why they didn't put the wires for the street lamps in the ground instead?

How often we take light from the street lamps for granted without giving a thought to the work required to keep them shining!!

Good theme day shot.

I like your choice for the theme. Yes, we owe a lot of our comforts to many, many people.

Thank you so much for the link, Dina! It's great to see Sousa Mendes being remembered.
