When and how do you start to create?

I blame it on the little plastic toy camera my grandpa gave to me as a present when I was about 10 years old. I remember my first photo beeing a view from our balcony onto the snowcovered fields of Bielefeld...

Landscapes, Cityscapes - in general I'm into sparse and minimalistic photography. I like bad weather, fog and so on. Helps to keep pictures simple.
