They are the silent bystanders in so many pictures of Paris.  The various styles of traditional cast iron lamp post are city icons, lending an immediate sense of place to a Paris photo. Receding from view along streets, staircases and quays a line of lamps gives a sense of perspective to an image and highlights a change in level.  Lamp posts feature in so many of my Paris photos that I decided it was time they had a post of their own.
