While waiting for a friend in a coffee shop in DC, the wire-cage light fixtures, against big windows with sunscreen mesh blinds, caught my eye.
A traffic signal light on a lamp post is visible just outside, and an office building rises across the street.

Cool and I love the way the mesh blinds repeat the ridges in the glass - or vice versa. Excellent DOF, Chris, and the angle is working for you nicely.

Thanks, Linda! It reminded me of a wire-cage worklamp my dad had in his woodshop when I was a kid... I couldn't resist a photo of it, in the coffee shop!
