I live in the suburbs of Chicago. Lots of camera shops, but a lot of similar neighborhoods. It can get kind of boring and you have to look really hard to "see" something to photograph, but it also helps develop your eye. I also look for interesting parks and forest preserves.
I would love to go to New Zealand. I have seen photos posted by Mike Holloman, who shoots medium format on slide film. His shots are gorgeous and show the country at its best.
