    ... around Tucson???? I did some of my best work, or at least some of my favorite work, around Tucson. Give or take 150 miles.

    Haha this was after the wedding, I posted a notice saying I was a traveling NY photographer and got hired by her on the day I was heading back so it worked out perfectly.

    Well, give me 200 miles, and I get interested. Seems for me looking at something every day, kills my creative juices.

    I had this problem with Missouri when we moved here. Having grown up in Colorado and spent my adult life in Montana and Idaho, it's rather flat here. I seem to be doing a lot of stuff around campus.

    To be fair, Colorado is hard to compete with...

    I'm not as much for traditional landscapes as some people. I like desolate, almost empty places. I kind of seek them out. I think that being around two small children all the time makes me crave the peace and quiet that these places, and photographs of them, provide. I'd absolutely kill to photograph Death Valley. I also love abandoned factories, but since the one in town closed and so many people lost their jobs (including lots of my family and my husband) I haven't really had the desire to seek those out. I'm going to explore some really personal issues in the photographs I do next, so I think that doing the 'Middle of Nowhere' project right after will help me decompress.

    I need to get the basement cleaned up so that I can set up the first shot. For some of these shots I'm going to need someone who can trip the shutter for me (it has to be me in the photographs), and for others I'm going to need models.
    No idea what's going to happen next, but I'm hoping it involves being wrist deep in chemicals come the weekend.

    I don't know the middle of the state too well, but over on the western edge there are some scruffy little towns that photograph well in my experience. Not a lot of Grand Sweeping Ansel Adams Landscapes, though.

    My great-grandfather was a serious landscape photographer who did basically his whole life's work within a day's drive of KC. Lots of trees and rivers, lots of light, lots of seasons, but not a helluva lot of topography in his images.

    The lady of the house has to be a pretty swell sort of person to put up with the annoyance of a photographer.

    Stephanie:

    It occurs to me that you could probably do some interesting abstracts with yarn/knitting and a macro lens.
