Places vs. Design

"... in photographs what gives a sense of place is a reference to change (and sometimes to loss) and to time passing. Take a photograph that does not give that sense of change, and the subject of the picture will be seen as simply design, not place."
Cervin Robinson

In my work, I am asked to photograph design, but in my heart, I am always more interested in photographing places. Once in a while, but not often enough, I manage to sneak in something more of the place than its design. I would like to do this more often, and it occurred to me recently that I can, by changing the way I work. To put it in another way, I have to change what I do for work.
