How high should the light be (from the ground) on the front porch? The door is seven feet tall? I can't put the light next to the door because there are glass blocks on both sides of the door. The glass blocks take up the space up to the side walls. The light will have to be placed on the wall on the right side of the house. The light hook up box looks too low to me. (Can't put a hanging light on the ceiling of the porch because it's sloped with natural wood showing. The outdoor metal piping for the electrical wiring can't be hiden and would look bad.)
I'm sure some of this is personal taste. But, any suggestions are appreciated!!! I can't believe how many details there are with electrical work.
This is an absolutely site specific thing, especially in a case like yours.
For reference I usually put them at roughly 6' 6".
Sometimes I feel like if I answer any more questions it is like someone trying to climb over a fence to jump off a bridge and me giving them a boost.

I will measure the light location tomorrow morning. I just feel it is too low. Now, I have a something to go by. I just want to double check things. Once the stucco is up, the light won't be changing. These are the little things that can make or break a house.
