I'm really fond of the "commonplace landscape." Ansel Adams sought and made glorious, dramatic, romantic, perfect pictures of amazing places. He also made less well-known images of less picturesque places. I confess to a fondness for the commonplace landscapes that let you plug into what a country really looks like on an every-day basis.
Obviously, commonplace landscapes are everywhere, and a little order and rhythm can be imposed on most of them with some patience and empathy. Roads are a special favorite of mine. They've all got a story to tell.
