I would say the easiest way of getting some interesting shots without killing your wallet is take some shots from a step ladder. I found it really interesting just taking shots from a ladder as you gain the advantage of angles that you cant get from the ground.
As Joetography says, just keep going and drive into the unkown and find your style. If you look at some of the photos off the 28 days later exploration site, you can get some good ideas there.
We are our worst enemies.I'm never happy.lol
also, try not
to shoot at midday, harsh light (unless you want that)
fill the frame or watch your backgrounds (easier to get it right in camera than crop and photoshop, time consuming)
and watch for the reflections as Matt said a polariser filter can help, but learn how to remove reflections in photoshop, can make a huge difference.
