I live and learn too, I didn't realise that Peller had vinyards anywhere else!

Kudos to all. Some great images.

Car, you're the second person this week who I've seen posting about Niagara on the Lake and ice wine. I love that area. I also love the occasional ice wine. We used to get some good Austrian eiswein when I lived in Germany. Tasty stuff.

Congrats Maureen and Car. Definitely creative, great shots. Thanks Teekay for hosting and judging. (If you hadn't nixxed architecture up-front, that's what you would have gotten. ;-)a )

Retailers in California cannot sell ("mainstream" 60W +/-) incandescent light bulbs in recent years. Hence, this once common thing has become a nostalgic throw-back overnight.
Thanks Maureen for your 'like'. Shooting that left me me quite a latitude of lighting & exposure combinations, and varied results. Fun! Thinking of trying coating the bulb (L/R edges w/ spray adhesive, hairspray, etc) and reshooting.

This is news to me. We can still buy them. New construction and remodels do require fixtures that take only LED bulbs, but the state government doesn't make our old lamps obsolete or make us rewire a home that has incandescent-type sockets.

@OhLook,
I just sloppily broad-brushed the subject. Basically, within 50W-90W range (or maybe 40W-100W) old_incandescent_techn​ology is "gone". Still allowed however in appliance bulbs, rugged service, other specialty. Also allowed for decorative styles... flame shape, globe shape, etc. I'm not sure about 3-way bulbs situation.
Happily for me, basic 150W and 200W old-tech bulbs can still be sold.

What passes for a 60W Incandescent bulb today... may be incandescent-Halogen, or some newer technology. (or else the product may be specified for vibration/rugged etc: ceiling fan, shop light...)

If I needed to shoot some vintage setting/scene lighting, I'd be searching for someone with some old stock left over.

Agreed, once you start remodeling --- certain levels of compliance kick-in. Depending on scope and size of remodel, interconnected smoke alarms may be required (and maybe other energy/conservation/sa​fety features).

??: may be 8-), but :evil:

Is that authentic? Looks great.
I've seen some new "Edison style" bulbs, replicas, at our local hardware store... nice enough, but not very "wow". Lots of selection online however.

Fun stuff to complement settings/scenes.

It's gorgeous isn't it? I didn't realise until out first visit there that there was so many wineries and vinyards, in fact I didn't even realise at the time that Canada produced wine, we had never been able to buy Canadian wines over here.
Eiswein IS good too - would never refuse a glass of either :-P:-P:-P

Yes, definitely authentic. When we bought our first house many years ago from a really old lady, this bulb was still in daily use in an antique lamp there. Now I keep in a box in bubble wrap and only light it for photo like this.

On your next trip to Canada I suggest you come to B.C. and spend a least a week taking wine tours in the Okanagan Valley which is loaded with first class wineries and vineyards. I guarantee you would be be amazed at the quality and variety.

That certainly sounds like a great idea. Hope to get back over in the next few years.
