    No industrial or agricultural buildings?

    Oh yes 1,2,3 and a bit of 4 + industrial and agricultural buildings + industrial archeology but what's left tends to be a bit flat

    Pillboxes. Though grenades through the firing slots are recommended above shooting, especially by VC winners.

    (Sorry, couldn't resist.)

    Seriously: whatever's handy.

    Cheers,

    Another unsuitable poll!

    I exclusively shoot mid-Victorian outside brick lavatories and they weren't even mentioned!

    Cheers, Jeff

    Edit to add: OK, I admit that I'll have a go at photographing all of the options.

    Options 1, 2, 3 and 4 but I can only select one so no vote from me either.

    Though I'd much prefer mountains etc.

    I'll happily shoot any of them, but as the poll seems to suffer from so many people that apllies to (without making it a voteable option) I voted for the ruins as they tend to be my favorite of the options.

    I can not imagine why anyone should be so selective between these subjects.
    If they are interesting and make a reasonable image I will have a go at anything old be it a building a machine or artifact.

    I am especially pleased when I can find a virtually unspoilt domestic building still surrounded by similar edifices and streets.

    Finally, a Poll with an answer option I could genuinely tick. The last option.

    That's funny. If I reply to #15 the quoted text ends at "historical interest". I was going to say that "empty of people" is aspirational. I'd be happy if red was banned for use in outdoor clothing.

    It depends upon where I am, what the weather's like, what's architecturally on offer. A drastic contrast between old and new can be interesting, as can the potential for an impressionist or even abstract treatment of the subject.

    Probably the inside of pubs. But usually I forget to take the camera with me.

    But hey....... Who cares.......
