Haha, agreed. Imagine describing your house! "It's got 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a nice spacious living room, a wonderful kitchen, oh and some random street lamp out of nowhere directly in my balcony!"

Neat photo. It'd be interesting to see some strange pics of streetlamps like that.

Logic would probably suggest that it's easier just to bolt the lamp onto the wall.
