Vintage of Metal Struts

I bet you can’t guess what this is. It sure looks spacey, or perhaps it’s a set piece from the film, Metropolis? Nope, not even close. This is a photo of part of a frensel lens from a light house! The reflections on the glass are just amazing, and the bronze metal struts add a real sense of character to the photo – they are what make you wonder its vintage and purpose more than anything, I think. They also add some texture that contrasts beautifully with the shine from the glass. This photo was published under creative commons by Chris Darling. Thanks, Chris!
