Missing my cameras


Shooting in a gift shop in the Adirondacks, summer '07

I'm in one of those funks right now where I don't take many photos, and I'm not sure why. I've been busy lately, that's for sure, but I haven't been feeling very inspired either. It's sad, because I see so much beauty around me, and I also see lots of wonderful images being captured by others. What gives? I dunno. It's hard to jump start something like creativity that just tends to happen all the time, and it's something I take for granted. Ugh, frustrating!

So I'm in need of a kick in the pants as far as my creative juices go. What do you do to get things humming along again? Any advice?

i just wait. because i know it will always come back when it seems to be in a lull. sometimes i think it is my brain turning that part off for a while so that it can rest and come back stronger the next time.

oops. i forgot to say, don't you worry. it'll be back.

oh, i love that pic, by the way. and the caption cracked me up, because although i knew what it meant, it sounded like a headline of a newspaper story--"Shooting in a gift shop..."

the creative side of your brain is still at work, even if you aren't aware :)

AND

agreed. the photo of you is perfect.
it captures the "spirit" of things we all know and love about you :)
