q is for quirky

Anything that excites me for any reason, I will photograph; not searching for unusual subject matter, but making the commonplace unusual.

Edward Weston (24 march 1886 - 1958) photographer

'making the commonplace unusal'...I love that. I think that really is the key to a wonderful photo...something ordinary and the light or angle just makes it special!
