New Lamps for Old
Well, there's the last of the "big changes" I had on the Master To-Do List.
The installers turned out to be a married couple; she put the pendant lamp together while he was the one that got up on the ladder and did the actual installation. While she was on the stairs putting the light together, she saw James' "rocket garden" and they talked about having taken their grandchildren to the Kennedy Spaceflight Center and having seen the Rocket Garden and taken the tour. "Endeavour" was on the pad when they went, but they did not see the actual launch. She even cleaned up the floor afterwards, although I planned to re-sweep it and wash it before putting everything back.
Yeah, yeah, I'll cut to the chase.
UGLY AND DUSTY OLD LAMP IS GONE! "Ding-dong, the light is dead! Which old light? The ugly light!"
REPLACED BY BEAUTIFUL NEW LIGHT (the light is on here, and this was taken with the flash):
The flash version without the light being lit shows the colors off a little better, although the professional shot in the previous post probably does the best job.
Now that it's there, it looks like it's always been there, like it belonged there all along.
If you look above the purple petals, and below the purple petals, you can see the light amber and light orange, respectively, tints that I added to the glass. It's very subtle, which is what I wanted.
