They were nothing special. Just some discarded old lights in a back alley, stacked against the rear of the store waiting for the trash. The photo is a part of my ongoing "Behind the Store" project.
The finish of this image is what happens when I have too much free time on my hands. It's the result of messing around with layers and different blending modes; having fun in Photoshop with layers such as gradient map and posterize, and blends like linear burn and dissolve, among others.
