Mundane Monday: Lamps

This week’s Mundane Monday challenge asks for pictures of lamps or lampshades. I’ve got a lot of these. Some of them are even artistic!

These are some serious lamps around the door at Gatke Hall at Willamette University, where my daughter goes to college. They look worthy of the Iron Throne; I would not mess with them.

And there were also plenty of interesting lamps on our trip to Asia last year. I think lamp posts work especially well for the photography “rule of thirds.”

The lamp post is definitely the most mundane of the 3 structures in this picture, near the Olympic Park in Beijing

For the Mundane Monday Challenge #145.  Mundane Monday Challenge encourages you to take more pictures by being aware of your surroundings. The philosophy of MMC is simple. You can create a beautiful picture even by focusing on a very common looking, dull or so called Mundane subject!

  1. Lamp posts are one of the things that always attract me to a street. I LOVED Victoria, BC. Every lamp post had flowers hanging from it. It was so beautiful. Yeah, those first ones up there look downright dangerous!
