Overcast dull day - what to shoot - give me some inspiration please

So As you'll know we're in lockdown in the UK

I can go out for exercise with my camera though.

I am an experienced photographer but usually do street, doc and travel primarily.

I will be walking today in a suburban town where there is not much of interest either in terms of architecture, or nature.

Now when there is sun you can use light and shadows to make things interesting

What subjects best lend themselves to really dull light and super cloudy heavy grey skies?

I'll be taking an X-T2 and 23mm F2 and as a challenge would like to incorporate shallow dof as I am usually a person who likes a stopped down aesthetic, so just for fun today I want to experiment with the bokeh!
