    It's not the location, it's the light! I hate sunlight. Give me soft overcast anytime!

    Did you know that they put Barbeque Sauce on their eggs?!!! (i.e. Everything!)
    Spent a week in Austin once. Had a pretty good time....ate at a great rib joint; they had to roll me out in a wheel barrow! Also ate at a restaurant that seemed like it was 500 feet over a lake/reservoir...really cool view. Alas, it was all before I rediscovered photography...

    Hotter than Hades, too...

    You want depressing towns, try just about anywhere in the industrial belt of Pennsylvania. Altoona is a prime example. Great if you want to channel the spirit of Jacob Riis, and document an entire city on the down-and-outs. Worse, some of the smaller towns that sprang into existence for the purpose of supporting a specific industrial site, like a small coal mine or iron foundry, and withered when the industry went belly-up. I'd say Altoona is a boil on the industrial sphincter of Pennsylvania, but at least it sees daylight. Tyrone, on the other hand, is fifteen miles up it.

    my least fave location is the suburbs and anywhere with little brats running around with their parents who don't control them or bother to entertain them properly. a royal pain trying to set up.
