two hundred and fifty two


I've been looking for inspiration.  Looking for something new, something colorful, vibrant.  Almost everything in my house is neutral and subdued.  I even wear brown most of the time.  Boring!  Try as I may, I still ended up liking a black and white shot for today.  


The color wasn't much more colorful anyway. 


How do you get inspired?

These are both quite lovely.

I often need to leave my comfort zone to gain new inspiration.

I like the light in the more subdued shots. Sometimes color overpowers the light in a photograph. However, I am inspired by color in nature.

not a thing boring about either of these shots-they are both lovely.

So cute. Love the light.

I think both shots are really nice,... but I love the muted colors and soft tones of the color shot. Been thinking about this question of inspiration too,... it's hard to pinpoint the answer. I find it depends a lot on my mood and the way I look at my surroundings. Your blog is lovely.

nothin' wrong with B&W!

I find myself gravitating to B/W photos these days. there's a nice dramatic effect to them.

What a wonderful photo! Both ways!! I usually find that I am inspired when I get out to look at things in nature. Hard to do when I get too busy though. But that does it for me.

Pat said...

This is so sweet. I love the b&w version.

100% agree...the BW all the way!

It's very interesting...visiting your space here consistently inspires me. I feel your heart to seek the inspiring in your "ordinary" ... perhaps knowing that your eye and your ordinary inspires others will encourage you and help you to feel inspired by...well... yourself! Love the black and white - and the twirler!

your day was like mine...you just go, snap, play. Love the conversion and light
