Needing a Theme? Choose 'Colour'

On my latest DSLR Essentials class thru CCE in Sydney, we walked from Darling Harbour to Rozelle light rail station, shooting as we went.  I try to encourage students to think about a theme - this is quite hard because there are many things to see and shoot: from maritime heritage to modern architecture, athletes, dog walkers, seascapes and dramatic scenery.
On answer to this is perhaps to choose a a more generic these rather than a specific one. I chose the word 'colour' - because most of the colour on the walk is quite bland. You could be more specific choosing yellow or red. I chose to go with spot colour just for fun.
