Finding interesting shots in mundane subjects is one of the great skills of any talented photographer. And it's a long way from being easy. But with an open and inquiring mind, it's possible to find great photographic opportunities all around you. We think these photographers did exactly that by taking a reasonably mundane subject like street lamps and extracting some great shots. Share your own in the comments.
