On the street where I live

I find it difficult to find many things of interest to photograph in my hometown.
Maybe a thread like this will push me to look around and see what I really have at my fingertips.

When was the last time you saw one of these?

Here is my philosophy; if you have big scenery, shoot that; if you don't have big scenery, look for small things and people to shoot. The buildings in older towns in Pennsy have lots of architectural details from which you can make interesting compositions. Good luck.

If we get a warm day, I am going to Hazelton for some Mexican food and pictures.

Agreed, it's the little things which are interesting. Many small towns look pretty similar, but some have interesting older buildings with remnants of old signage or architectural details.

I like the picture and I feel the same about "things worth to shot". In my case I think that it is because I'm in the beginning, so my eyes are not used to "search" a photography, but to find something "ready to take a picture of".
Anyway, thumb up!
