it seems subjects are everywhere; we only need to see everyday stuff as a subject.

http://www.thephotoargus.com/lovely-pictures-of-tea/

instead of moaning about the wet and cold up there (as I would :() set up a small window-light studio and find stuff at home/garden/shed or bring stuff home. Don't look at a subject as one "big" thing. Find the small parts that make up that "big" thing. Take a garden spade/shovel; I could think of 1/2 dozen small parts that make up a shade. Handle/bends in metal/handle into the metal/the edge of the blade/torn and worn label/soil on a shiny spade/rust ........... All we need is light/shadow or colours or texture to make a contrast and we have a photo.

Then you might even fiddle around outside the square and your comfort zone when editing the files. Photo of that spade blade and a few photos pasted onto that blade

[what is the proper name for the metal part ... the digging bit of a spade/shovel called?? :confused:

"set up a small window-light studio" (??) small table or even a chair, some small boxes, some material (bed sheet ;)) or card, couple of reflectors (anything white, cooking foil, the inside of many cardboard 1 and 2 litre liquid containers are a soft silver ;), something dark /non shiny to hold light back. No need to spend money .......... clothes pegs can hold somethings

Enjoy your northern winter :rolleyes:

Now this is fun photography, Ian, found the gold inside of a Ferreo Rocher chocolate box gives a wonderful Sunset effect.
Apologies if you do not have these in the Southern Hemispere, but worth buying the chocolates just to get the reflector :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:
