For a Kindle ebook, I decided to photograph a lamp-post for part of the cover. A pole with the light on an arm (instead of just the vertical pole) will make good composition. It then became important to find lamp posts.
Before it was important, I drove around town every day during the daytime. How many lamp posts did I notice? Zero. Now that it matters, I noticed a lot in one day. They’re everywhere, often on the power poles. In the park. In parking lots. At the car dealerships. On street corners. Also, I’m remembering lamp posts I’ve seen without paying any attention at the time. Next step is to go out with the camera.
