They are sensors for movement/lighting up time. nice shadows, four holes in a row for the PVC cables was nice to see good detail well captured.

oh dear!! lurking around alleys now itís a downward spiral tisk tisk, dreadful electrical installation the contractor should be shot they look like light sensors to me to automatically switch on lights when the natural light dims on the other hand I could be dimming and lost the plot yet again.
like the shadows
