    Head into town - think of a subject then your mind will be tuned to spotting that subject. Once you get bored of it, think of another subject, you'll start noticing that as well then just go with the flow.

    Starter for ten, drainpipes - off you go! :D

    Do what I (try to) do about twice a week, grab your camera with one lens, and just take a walk.

    That's an easy one for me.... walk to the train station and head into NYC.

    I live in a semi-rural area...I'm moving to Seattle for college next fall, but I feel like I should be taking advantage of my area while I still have it.

    I used to live in the rural Southern Oregon region and will be back there in a few weeks for about a month to visit family and freinds. What I liked to do is just go for a drive. Go down roads that I've never been down before and see what I can find. The last time I did that when I was in Oregon, I found a dynamite view of Mt. McLaughlin.

    When I moved to Seattle, I left my car behind and now I just walk amongst downtown.

    Anyway, what school are you going to be going to in Seattle, Riggaberto?

    All throughout Jersey, I like to find historical, lost, and forgotten places to shoot. For me, It is a walk through time and I try to imagine what it must have been like while photographing it. Even an old run down barn is a place to explore. NOTE: be wise and careful. Plan ahead for safety if you do.

    I also visit old cemetaries pretty frequently....

    I live in Chicago, so I go downtown. Oddly, I frequently end up shooting flowers. I don't even like flower pictures that much, I just like taking them. But there is always architecture and people and rusty metal stuff. I do like pictures of rusty metal stuff.

    Yeah that's the idea, I'm very excited. Living in that location will provide no shortage of photographic opportunities. People are my favorite, so that will be good.

    In the meantime though...

    I like the suggestion on just picking something, I'll ask for suggestions from my friends I guess.
