The Urban Lamppost

Illuminating our streets so to keep us safe, this mundane piece of street furniture can provide the photographer with numerous opportunities as I discovered myself by creating several contests on photocrowd.com. Lampposts from all corners of the world, Canada, Cape Town, Sydney, New York, London and everything in between have all a different story.  These constests showed a real global effort in capturing and presenting in a new light what seems, at times, nothing other than just an overseen and forgotten piece of street furniture.
