Extraordinary out of the ordinary; Everyday objects intrigue Flickr sharers.

Byline: BY RICHARD DOWN Daily Post Staff

EXTRAORDINARY shots of ordinary objects are a source of endless fascination on the Daily Post's photo-sharing site.

Liverpool Street Lights, by hoohaaa, look like a Dandelion- Triffid hybrid, as designed by John Wyndham. It seems to have become a bit of a favourite among Flickr users, who agree it has something vaguely extraterrestrial about it.

However, there was little need for cunning camera tricks to conjure stunning images out of the Brouhaha weekend.

Mobilevigin and Oneterry's shots are blistering.

The headdresses on display were phenomenal, and Oneterry's contribution expertly describes the chaotic impact the dancers had on the city's streets.

Meanwhile, it is the sense of movement that makes the pair of Flamenco dancers stand out from a huge number of uploads.

But, as usual, this week's pictures feature a few images of quiet and solitude against the frenetic activity of the carnival. DrCSC's portraits of Waterloo sand dunes paint a lonely and wonderful picture of Merseyside's varied coastline.

The gallery has gone beyond 6,500 pictures, despite a limit of four picture downloads that we have had to impose recently.

All the pictures can be viewed at www.liverpool dailypost.co.uk/flickr and adding your own is easily done at www.flickr.com/groups/liverpooldailypost08
