For a future zine project, I want to fill in the blanks around these categories: payphones; power; death; police; beach; birds; trees; industrial; signs; graffiti; textures; curves in architecture; farmers markets; surveillance and the inevitable fucked up pictures.

For monochrome pictures, I am looking for brutal architecture, concrete, wet streets, reflections, shadows and building outlines.

Not worried about clichés, don't care if a subject has been done to death.
