inspiration

a recent conversation posed the question,
what do you do when you're needing inspiration?


my answer was 
getting out in nature


today, it was a 30 minute walk on the trail


and I took my camera


so, if I were to revisit that original conversation,
the more complete answer would be
getting out in nature with my camera


life has been 
T O O
hectic lately


time to slow down and take time to see

At least I can leave a comment on your blog, one of few lately. Your nature inspired photos are divine. I really like how you use your camera. It is true art behind the lens.

A walk outside in the beauty of the natural world always clears my head too. Love your pics:)

I'm with you on the camera and nature idea to spark inspiration, works every time for me, and your photos are fantastic, I also love your 'header' photograph, beautiful colours and texture...is it cloth or paper ? Good luck with the 'slowing down' part...I find the momentum in our lives has a mind of it's own and is often difficult to control. xx

Oh I so agree. Nothing like a good walk in the fresh air to clear the head, blow away the cobwebs and refresh.....I just came back from one. xox

You are very right! Taking a bit of time in the midst of the chaos can help bring us back. So glad you found your peace and inspiration on a walk.

Remembering to get out and slow down and soak up the inspiration that nature gives so freely is a realy gift to oneself.
Beautifully captured here !
I hope your weekend has some of those slow down moments!

I escape to the studio... there are always things on the go and old sketchbooks to flick through and images and pictures I have printed out or torn from magazines... and it is a quiet haven for my tea and I...xx
