Obviousy rhetorical. I consider myself a serial adventurer and have lived many, many places as an adult....starting with joining the Navy at 17 y/o. What that did was probably make me very observant to places and fixtures and ask myself - why, what, where, when and who? I think as photographers that comes into place when shooting albeit very organically.
Living in Las Vegas in my 11th year, and doing numerous triathlons out of Boulder Beach and actually doing a Dead Man's Island open water swim loop, there is a cement structure on Big Boulder Island you ALWAYS notice. It will be in ever photo. BUT, I have never committed to getting over to the island and hiking the island.
Yesterday, some friends were in a small regatta...the wind was soft so I knew the images were not going to be that compelling but you show up anyway, right? Yep, you guessed it - time to explore the cement structure. Even after a quick google search, I could not find any info on the structure.
