Let There Be Light...

"Light" is the word prompt for this week's Texture Tuesday.  The first thing that came to mind was a light bulb.  (I take things literally!)

Most of us think Thomas A. Edison invented the light bulb.   Au contraire - The first light bulb was built by Humphry Davy (an Englishman) in 1809.   Thomas Alva Edison improved the invention and based his improvements on a patent he purchased from inventors Henry Woodward & Matthew Evans who patented their bulb in 1875.


This photo is one of my first taken with my new Nikon D3100 DSLR camera.  I shoot in the raw!
