Like most photographer, I try to take photos of beautiful things and settings. But I also like to find beauty in ordinary or unusual settings or things. It doesn't always work, but occasionally it does.
Most, if not all, photos no matter how well they came out of the camera need adjusting (called post processing) to improve their effect. First you compose the picture if you can, then you take the photo(s), finally you process (edit) the photo(s) to bring out the beauty you saw in them when you took the picture.
