View the entries for this challenge here:

You can tag as many photos as you like.

Seek to find interest in the ordinary!
Mundane - lacking interest or excitement; dull. Everyday life and its repetition often associated with the mundane.

New theme: wires - as in those used for conducting electric current. Feel free to use different photographic techniques, but wires should clearly stand out as the mundane object you are capturing. (Wires need not be on a utility pole.)

The theme is a throwback to the first time @shookchung encouraged me to try and take a photo each day about 10 years ago. I have always been fascinated by the silhouette of wires on utility poles - especially against the background of a rising or setting sun. This challenge is an homage to those who continually encourage and inspire me - thank you!
