    go buy a bunch of flower and you have some great subject matter. But if you want a really good challenge, here is one for you. Lock yourself in your bedroom, and take 40 photos, each one different of the room. The first few will be generic room shots, but then you have to start looking at detail/angles etc and by you get to the last 5 shots, you will find you have some really creative results.

    Sort through some of the 174,962 photographs on your hard drive you haven't post-processed yet.

    Or, do as Fez says - absolutely superb photography weather here.

    There's no such thing as "bad weather" - there's just bad gear... Get out an umbrella if you must and move outside! There are beautiful photo's waiting to be shot when it's raining...

    macro stuff of insects etc

    Portraits

    setup things and try product type photos

    If all else fails go to a museum or just try different photos from the car and there always is shots of flowers in garden.

    Oh and nar dont visit Victoria, come to Adelaide

    I wonder about this from time to time. Make up a light box and play around with that. You can surprise yourself with one of these. Get ideas from other photos and invent your own.
    Thanks for looking....Cheers,

    This is the best thought so far; Rick' is a very close second.

    When it rains, cook. Make cup cakes or a stack of pancakes or muffins or biscuits. Then photograph them. Then eat them.

    Rain...what's that ?

    Use a bit of creativity and get out there in the rain, some brilliant shots can be obtainable in rainy weather, only limited by ones imagination.

    I like playing around with photos you wouldn't normally 'see' in your mind...

    Like taking abstract photos of bits of things around the house

    Here are a few ideas:

    - Process photos you have never had time to do before or go back over some of your better ones and process them again if you have improved your photo shop skills since you first did them and see if you can improve on them.

    - Plan and research a new topic / subject you want to photograph or plan a photography project.

    - Do as Rick said and lock yourself in a room and take 40 or 50 photos, that will force you to look at things in a different way and push you to try new things.

    I usually go for macro shots when the weather is bad and I want to shoot something. Like in the What is this thread 283 at the moment. I just grabbed this.........., set it up on the pool table near the best available light, got tripod, adjusted the ......... so that light was optimum, coming through the hole and fired away. There are heaps of things to shoot. Start looking, old coins, paper money, fruit, flowers in pots. Have fun.
