    I live in Athens (not Georgia) and although there are more than 3mil. inhabitants, the analog photographers are really very few... I know some of them, although I know they don't shoot that often...

    It's nearly impossible to stumble on someone shooting film on the street...

    But during our vacations, when we visit touristic places around Greece we sometimes meet tourists (from around Europe) still shooting film. This summer on the island of Folegandros I saw a 14-year old French boy using an old Pentax SLR and asked him how comes he used film and he said that the camera was his fathers and he wanted to try it and see what it would give (as a result)... his father, mother and siblings were nearby but didn't seem to bother that much with the member of the family that was going luddite... a few years ago on the island of Amorgos I met a Berliner who used a Nikon SLR and said that he felt that film was more "real" than digital imaging and a French guy shooting the clouds with a 16-mm movie camera !! And of course there's me, that goes around sometimes with a Rolleiflex, other times with LF cameras and people are looking at me and surely have stories to tell when they go back home... hahahaha

    I am sure that someone that has not been used to the type of landscapes in that area will be able to find photographic interest there... it's just that you've been living there for a long time and don't see the interesting things anymore...

    I live in Hamburg, Germany - it is highly photographic area if you like architecture. For street photography not so much - I like east and south parts of Europe more.

    There are a lot of mountain bikers around here. Trails wind through the woods and a dedicated bike trail, called the "Legacy Trail" pretty much connects Canmore to Banff. I understand Europe generally
    has much better biking trails. We might not be there yet.

    I live in a dinky town in the Ohio Valley. I see a few photogs now and then. No film, just digital. They usually have a DSLR, a kit lens or a prosumer zoom. I seldom talk with them. We got lots of cell phone photogs.

    I wish my area was better for photo ops. i am always surprised how I still drum up some street shots in my little town.

    Good advice!
