Gas Lamp
















The other day I was walking past the Post Office in downtown Long Beach and saw these amazing old gas lamps on either side of the front entrance. They look to be about 5 or 6 feet tall and are approximately 2 or 3 feet around and bookend the front entrance. I decided to use the Sephia setting on my camera to kind of capture the "oldness" of them. The Post Office was built sometime around 1900.

What a neat picture. This must be post office day today! My camera has that sepia effect but I've never tried it--I guess I should!
