    Saw a display with lighting fixtures the other night and was intrigued by the filaments in the lamps. It was hard to capture a good image with so many people about, but I was able to get a few.

    Those are really cool! As winter draws in I am going back to my bulbs. Here's a not very fantastic view of one of my car's brake lights.
