Here's a thought...

Every so often people ask for places to visit for photography. They generally receive a list of 'honeypots' which have been photographed to death.

Now, back when I were a nipper, I was advised that a good photographer could find interesting shots anywhere. To prove it, we were sent out with a camera, one roll of film and instructions to visit a specified and particularly unpromising area. We had to return with the whole film used. It was a surprisingly effective exercise.

So, how about a list of seriously horrible locations that would qualify for such a challenge? I'll start the ball rolling with a few...

  1. Bridgewater, Somerset
  2. Castlemilk Glasgow
  3. Chatham, Kent
  4. Kilwinning, Ayrshire
  5. Milton Keyne, Buckinghamshire (but please, not the cows)
  6. Skelmersdale, Lancashire
  7. Swansea, Wales
  8. Swindon, Wiltshire
