I so agree with this. Landscapes with no other interesting features (like airplanes, cars, buildings, other people, bugs, etc.) bore me stiff as subjects. I like to look at a well shot landscape photo, but have no interest in making such images myself. If I can find it on a postcard, somebody else has already done the heavy lifting, and I can go looking for statues with weird expressions on their faces, hand lettered signs, and dogs.

A lot of people post portraits of their kids. Those pictures put me in a coma. Borrrrrring. Some people post bird pics. Ugh. Dogs? Borrrrrring. Statues....uh, maybe? Hand-lettered signs, well as part of a travel feature.

Everyone has different interests. I LOVE shooting landscapes and I think my images are better because I have passion.
