Eagle eyed viewers may recognize this lamp. It's the same as from my very first ribbon: ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/1000-1999/1330/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_930089.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/1000-1999/1330/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_930089.jpg', '/') + 1) . '.

Of course, I didn't want to do the same thing. So I changed it up and went for more of a diagonal view rather than looking up. This gives it more of an abstract look, which is always dangerous here but I like it.

Always tough to work with reds in minimal editing. That and noise, since I was handholding the 150-600 beast of a lens in dark conditions, I needed to crank that ISO high.
