One of my major activities is exploring the city for reference material for future compositions.  On these visits, I try and frame shots to see if something might click.

I am also interested in finding subject matter for compositions that might be submitted to the MIP art shows.  If I can find an appropriate urban theme derived from the site, I may submit that composition for the fall show.
