This Little Light of Mine
Description: f/5, 1/20 sec, ISO-500, 36mm focal length, 28-300mm lens, Effects in PS
Thomas Alva Edison worked tirelessly to develop the electric filament light bulb. He never viewed any of his designs that did not work as failures but only as something else he learned from. He was quoted as saying “We now know a thousand ways not to build a light bulb”. This picture was taken in his lab which is now found in Greenfield Village in Dearborn, Michigan. Henry Ford thought so much of Edison that he moved Edison's entire lab to the Village and had Edison come for the dedication. The chair you see in this scene is the chair that Edison sat in during the dedication and has since then been nailed to the floor so it would remain in the very place Edison left it sitting.
Of course I added my special touches as a tribute to Edison's invention.....light!
