    Here are a few pics I took at a job where we were asked to improve the lighting for the back yard. The electrician did it to save money.

    Nice job concealing the downlight on the pergola! Love the conduit. :)
    That poor poor tree.......what a shame!
    I have to ask....how did that save them money?

    Thanks for sharing Tommy.

    They got what they deserved. When you want cheap, you get cheap.

    My wife speaks with some regularity and one of the most popular talks she gives is her "Lighting Bloopers." She seeks photographic contributions and gives credit to the source. I think you have a store house of wonderful bloopers here. Would you mind sharing them with Naomi? If OK, I'll send you her e-mail.
