Ok, so maybe the future won’t look like this, but this photo sure has that "Sci-fi" look.
If you are having a hard time figuring out what those strange things are, don’t worry, they are only outdoor lights. If you look close enough, you can even see the light bulb in the closest one.
And for those of you who are interested, this was shot with a 100-400mm lens. That’s why the photo has such a "flat" look.
