Yep, I know what you mean Phil...
I feel like I'm stuck in a rut at the moment. Every time I come home from the airport, I seem to have taken more of the same kind of shots. Completely my own doing of course. I should go wander around a bit more to find new angles, but so far that hasn't really worked out yet. The daytime is off limits now, as heat haze ruins most shots, and in the evening the traffic is slow and without surprises (unless you're a "numbers"-spotter). Getting up at 5:30am to catch the heavies coming in is also not something you'd like to do every day. I still go to the airport every once in a while (mostly in the evening with the nice light), and hopefully some weird weather conditions might create some cool opportunities this summer.
And hopefully on my next holiday I will get some nice 'new-for-me' shots, but my destination is one of the most overphotographed airports around (guess!). So uploading shots from there won't really be an added value to the db.
So I expect a reduction in uploads... We'll see...
Deterrents? The beach... Drink beer on a sunny terrace in Amsterdam with friends... Play football (excuse me... soccer) in the park... Plenty of other stuff to do!
