A different type of street lamp
I feel sort of ashamed at having to own up to the circumstances around which I took this photograph. I had gone to an old friend’s house. Her father had passed away the night before and we were by her side to see her through the stages of having to say goodbye to him for the last time as he was taken away for his final rites – his Namaz-e-Janaza.
He had been quite ill since his wife passed away 7 months earlier – I guess it’s true what they say about ‘losing the will to go on living’. That is what happened to Uncle after Aunty died so although my friend was quite shattered at having lost both her parents within such a short period of time, she was accepting of the fact that he had led a full life and he had decided that it was time for him to go.
We hung around with her for a couple of hours before bidding her adieu and as we were leaving her home, I spotted this ‘lamp’. Just couldn’t resist taking a picture of it. What a simple but creative idea – using a basket in this most unique manner. 🙂
