Despite that, there are some subjects that can be photographed with these light and landscape conditions. I have found three themes that seem to offer some photographic opportunities: architecture, cityscapes, and a series of photographs of roadside memorials that I have been working on for a while now.

It's not a coincidence that all of these subject areas can benefit from even light, or a dead-looking landscape. I will have some further comments on cityscapes and roadside memorials in the near future.
