You remind me of my first trip to the US.
We visited friends in South Carolina, went through Charleston, up through to WDC, Boston and NYC.
Something that quickly drew my attention was all the crazy cool fire hydrants around. They’re something unique to the US (maybe Canada too), and I was fascinated with all the colours and styles and neighbourhoods they were found in.
I started a bit of a photography project and tried to capture a bunch but I wasn’t there long enough to really make something of it.
But I always thought it would’ve made something cool, though I bet someone has done a photography book like that already.
But it sounds like something you’re looking for.
Another idea I had (years ago as a young, young man - important to remember this) I always thought it would be funny to do a lads’ travel book about places guys would stop and take a leak, haha.
I figured seeing all sorts of sites around the world, with a tiny splash on the edge of frame, or a long shot of a guy standing next to his car in front of a huge mountain, doing his business.
Never showing any tiddly bits, but the idea of all the places you could visit and a guy doing what a guy does. Haha.
