pot shots

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.

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?
