Alex, I especially like the contrasting cars.
Whenever I feel I've run out of subjects in my immediate (walkable) neighbourhood I find my vision is freshened if I go out with a different camera, or colour film instead of b&w, or at a different time of day.
Spoilt for choice if I get in the car, of course. City, harbour, parks, ocean, islands, mountains, trees, lakes, rivers..... all less than an hour from home.
John, I like the idea of an APUG house swap arrangement. Who wants to visit Vancouver Island? No pets, but you'd have to keep the bird feeders topped up.
