A bright idea (237/365 2013)

A bright idea (237/365 2013)
August 25th. The theme for the week is inventions so I thought id do best british inventions and I'd start with an obvious one.
The light bulb was invented in 1880 by Joseph Swan. A lot of people think it was Edison but Swan got his patent and started manufacturing in 1880. The first bulbs lasted no more than 12 hours but as a replacement for dirty gas lamps they soon caught on.
I did this first as a this is also representative of a good idea or realisation (that light bulb moment).

Fantastic picture, super concept, and great information too. I have always been fascinated by that fact about Edison not being the first. It actually happens a lot, as I'm sure you know.

Have you read this book by Bill Bryson? At Home goes room by room through Bill's house, talking about the history and inventions of everything! Totally fascinating.

Oh right, "inventions week". That explains the Thermos flask and the Cement photos. I should be browsing the stream the other way around...
I love this shot. It is very well taken and just really cool looking. Symbolic also, like somebody turning on the light? :)
