It's true, you could be the best photographer in the WORLD, but if you don't have visuals like this to work with, you can't get interesting shots...

You'd think so, but then there are photographers like William Eggleston, who take the banal, mid-west US and turn it into beautiful photographs.

If he can turn the boring mid-west into art, then anything location can be photographed beautifully. Of course, I'm not saying I could. I'm cheating. But I'm not a master photographer like Eggleston and others.

I will check out his work, cos where i live it's boring, i hope he's not a portrait photographer, that's easy to work with.

He's not. His subject matter is just regular stuff you find on the street.

Ah yes, you're a follower of a certain time period, just like the sheeple of Vivian Maier. I can guarantee you that there would be no interest in those photographer's work if they were current pictures of today. It's a nostalgic effect of the brain to admire looks of the past. Take for example your work. With its amazing light visuals, and high rise buildings, but go take ordinary pics of people in current fashion, and current cars, gas stations, diners etc, it won't be favored as much NOW as it will be in 15-20 years because it will look "classic".

Maybe, but Eggeleston's work was popular shortly after it was created: in the 1970s. (For the record, I'm not a fan of Vivian Maier's work.) Anyway, I get what you're saying, but there is lots of great work made from regular old stuff. Street photography is all about that (and that's a big part of what I do, though you may not care for those photos). Here is a contemporary example: Matt Stuart

His photos are example what you describe, contemporary people in ordinary situations. But he captures them so beautifully and with a great sense of humor. My point is that saying you need beautiful stuff around to make beautiful photographs is false. It certainly makes things easier, but it's not a requirement.
