Italian oil lamp
Contest Number: 116 Contest Theme: Lamps Lens: Pentax A 50mm f1.7 Camera: K-1 Shutter Speed: 1/25s Aperture: F1.7

An oil lamp seen in a restaurant in Sorrento, Italy. The colours in the restaurant were superb, as is often the case in Southern Italy. This type of lamp, with oil and a wick, has been used in Italy since the Ancient Roman times, two thousand years ago, and probably further back, although nearly all were made of clay with rolled up linen as the wick.

Didn't see any on the tables, perhaps they add them at night (like a storm lantern).

Probably not used.


Very nice shot. (Guess I should have mentioned that earlier)


You captured the mood of an intimate setting well.
