William S. Burroughs, in one of his essays from the 60-70s, suggests "color walks" as a method of exploration. You select a particular color and look for it. This allows you to pick up on details you would otherwise miss (from personal example, a potted geranium on a third-storey window ledge). A great thing about this practice is that it allows you to "travel" in your own neighborhood. Streets that may seem overfamiliar can be viewed through a fresh lens, so to speak.
