Home is photographic hell?
Does it have to be?
I have been living in Germany for about 10 years now.
I find wherever I go... there are great things to photograph. Almost every inch of France is wonderful. Cambodia, laos, Turkey, Morocco, Egypt, Columbia, Peru... etc. etc.... all are GREAT to take photos....
But Germany is soooooooooo boring. I am always frustrated that I cannot find anything to float my boat.
is it because there is nothing "Exotic"?
Folks I know here on vacation find many, many things indeed.
How many others have troubles finding things to photograph when close to home?
I think it's a matter of seeing the same things day in and day out.
I live in New Mexico and have grown tired of the same old Santa Fe, White Sands, Taos pictures.
Chris, go to New Mexico; David, go to Germany.
Old Europe for New Mexico?

Nice, looks like 10 miles from my house.... but maybe its because I see Fachwerk houses every day.....
I think I need a dusty tent and a camel with body odour .....
Dont get me wrong.... I love Germany.... but I see so much of it, you can give me an empty desert and it would excite me more than any building here :-(
I know, it is not the classic photo to be found here on the forum, but it WAS Analog :-)
Boring is worth photographing
Boring is a real feeling, it is worth trying to photograph. What makes you bored, can your photographs express your boredom. I am serious, some of the best photographs are expressing what is closest to home.
Could be worse, think Central Illinois....
