Roaming through my digital pictures I came across a few that made me start to think about inspiration. Normally I am immediately drawn to something—usually visual. But going through my file that is in desperate need of some weeding, I started to deliberately choose a few things that I would normally automatically ignore or even delete.
What the heck is this? And in this modern age of immediate digital feedback, why did we keep this? But I am glad I have it now.
A tree in our backyard that looks great with leaves, but plagues me with those menacing, treacherous little spiky pods. Now that I stop to look at this shot though, I start to feel all abstract-y.
Clouds from a trip that I wasn’t even on. But I love those hints at shadow on the right.
And I think this exercise in deliberately choosing to find inspiration in the everyday/mundane/refuse is useful for what I am about to embark upon:
Join me! Or join Mr. Man in commiserating over a wife who will be spending more and more time closeted away.
Anybody else out there have some unusual inspiration sources?
