Re: Jack P/Damian W
It doesn't feel easy to explain. Sometimes it's that what you're seeing is new. It's loud and busy or quiet and still and the contrast is something that interests you. Sometimes it's that a person or a group or a way of life is there that is in contrast to the surroundings, or is new and interesting. Sometimes it's the fact that it's the same, no matter if it's a thousand miles apart. I think the generic answer is 'anything that catches my interest and holds it long enough to write about'. I like things that make a good story, where 'why' is the opening gambit and it might not be an easy answer.
