Ornate

I must get a photo, but have to get the topic off my chest first.
There are several new roads being built near us, all surrounded by very modern structures. The lamp posts on these roads all look like cast offs from a low budget BBC Victorian drama prop cupboard. They’re very ornate and sylised. Dubai’s always had modern lamp posts, leaving odd designs to other emirates. These things might look fine when Dubai builds 1860s Dubai Victoriana City, but they really don’t belong next to a glass and steel skyscraper.
I don’t like them and I don’t want to have to look at them every day!
