German photographer Lucas Zimmermann took five to twenty second long exposure photographs of street lights in the fog near Weimar, Germany.

We see traffic lights everyday, they've become such a staple of everyday life and they have nothing of artistic value to offer, unless of course you're Lucas Zimmermann. Zimmermann has managed to take the banality of street lights and turned them into something worthy of our attention. Gone are the traditional traffic light colors of red, yellow and green, instead we get a multitude of different bright neon colors of light streaking across the sky. Each color gives the different photographs their own distinct look and feel, the white lights creates a haunting X-Files feel while the red light give off a more raver vibe.

It's clear Lucas Zimmermann is a photographer with a great eye and the ability to turn the mundane into the extraordinary.
