Where is a good spot?  I always find myself riding my bike through the 
slums because there are always people out who don't mind having there 
picture taken but everyone takes pictures of the slums.  Where can I a 17 
year old get pictures of the rich.  I snuck onto a golf course once but 
those people aren't very receptive to photos and there boring shots any 
ways.  The country club won't let me anywhere near.
