This is beautiful; these are very cool. But I’m not hip enough to know what they are. Sorry. Signed “hip-less in the Okanagan”. Cool shot though. Looking forward to the reveal.
No lava lamps in lotus land?? Say it isn’t so!
Luminous!! I think they are, what were those things called? Lava lights? I was only a wannabe hippie, just a tiny bit too young to be the real thing but – oh!! I so wanted to!! I wanted to be Vashti Bunyan (though she probably had candles, not lava lights – is that what they are called?)
Me too, Elizabeth. I sooooo wanted to be a hippie, but was only ten-ish during the summer of love. Still, I continue to be fascinated by all things related to that ‘fantasy’. Some years ago I was in Haight Ashbury… ridiculously thrilling in one way, yet a real ‘coming down to earth’ experience in another. I wrote a very mad little story about it, which I will now shamelessly link to. (: http://lwot.net/page_carin.html
I don’t know Vashti Bunyan. [love the name though] Will consult Madame Google…
That is a beautiful beautiful story, Carin, and I love your bio too.
Thanks, Elizabeth. The bio is meant to be compatible with the theme of the publication, i.e. LWOT = Lies with Occasional Truth. (;
You used to see some of these around when I was a kid — but I guess they were more of a 60s thing? Are they called lava lamps? What an interesting shot — the three of them, such different colours and shapes, in a row like this. And their brightness set against the neutral back wall. They really are mesmerizing to watch, as I recall — why’d they ever go out of style, I wonder. Where did you spot these ones?
First time I saw one was in the late 70’s. And of course I can hardly remember the occasion… (;
This was taken at a local coffee shop.
[I was drinking ginger tea and inhaling nothing but air.]
Lava lamps :) I had several of these back in the late 70’s early 80’s. I have noticed that they’re making a comeback.
Along with a few other things. Who knew the 70’s were that exciting?? (:
Lava Lamps making a big comeback, or maybe they never really left. I love the one with the moving coloured blobs best … reminds me of another chapter, way back!
These are in a coffee house frequented by mostly young folk, and occasionally me. [The couches are very nice…] So, yes, I guess it’s in the ‘comeback’ category. We had good taste though, didn’t we? (:
Ok, I remember these from the first time out – so rub it in! I never had one but loved going to friend’s places that were cool enough to have them. Nice colours!
I didn’t have one either, Allison. Although we did have a fake fireplace my dad made out of a revolving cylinder of aluminium foil, back-lit with a red lightbulb. Beat that, lava lamp!
Is the one on the right the kind that has lightening swirls in it that will attach to the glass under your fingertips when touched? Lighting can be exciting!
I sense a fellow lover of storms…!
As for the lightning qualities in the lamp… I couldn’t say. They belong to a coffee shop and I didn’t touch them. Perhaps next time I will. (;
