For stock photography, almost anything. Heck, you'll even find a couple of trains here:

I also shoot a ton of sports, mostly high school.

I photograph trains, nature, sports, family photos etc. I've always wanted to try aviation. I've taken photos of planes before but they aren't near as good as what is on JetPhotos. I have an airport by me that allows jets (Joliet International doesn't allow them because the runway isn't big enough). I may head out there soon and give it a shot.

Nothing in particular. Sunsets, bugs, cars, brick walls, and many other things.

Pretty much anything that I think makes an interesting subject and I have a camera handy.

I like to take pictures of anything and whatever, when it's something that would look good on film, for reference, or to remember by. I like shooting nature, just outdoorsy stuff: landscapes, water, trees, sky. Not much into the human element, or action photography (aside from moving trains). My camera is always within reaching distance for whatever that might prompt me to capture.

I'm trying to branch out from just trains, esp. since I went digitale a year and a half ago. Here are some examples.

Models (not model trains, mind you, but actual models)

Car Shows

http://signaturedigitale.com/page6.html

Flags, fireworks & sunsets

http://signaturedigitale.com/page5.html

and a former "Million Dollar Mill"

Sometimes I just do random night photography, such as Mt. Fagan in Vail Arizona behind my house.

Ahh, let's see...

If I see a very dramatic nature scene I will definently shoot it, same with wild animals, and my two pet cats

I have also taken pictures of my dad's Jeep if it is with our camper, really clean or really muddy, in a cool spot like a mountain top, or splashing though the mud, that is fun photography!!!!!

I'll take pictures of anything that catches my eye, though I have a particular fondness for urban and industrial scenes.

My non-train photos can be found here...

I alos have posted there a number of train pictures that for whatever reason arenít Railpics material.
