Arlington Texas recently installed some new lampposts in the downtown area. Not cheap, from the looks of them.

Can't decide which shot is the most interesting. The lion or the star?

Both look pretty good to me.

Technically, both shots are outstanding. I like the composition and contrasts of the second shot the most. Great find.

It is interesting how government always has the money for things like expensive lighting fixtures but not enough to build or maintain roads! There was quite a rucus in Salem, the Oregon state capitol, when they installed $5000 chandoliers in a newly constructed state building. I don't know how that ended up.
