Since we observed Columbus Day on this Monday, I thought it fitting to share one of my new discoveries. It is hardly as life changing as World Exploration, BUT, I found it an inspiration source. Maybe you will too. This will be a short entry- I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.
Lately I’ve been in a funk. Call it dwindling daylight hours, exhaustion, lack of balance, or even frustration that I’m not taking the pictures I want to be taking, both quality and quantity. Whatever the case, it is a funk of which I’ve been working to rid myself. I did a little Google searching the other day (because I had no other focus) and found a great website- www.photographyblogger.net.
Photography Blogger’s tagline is: “A Source of Photography Inspiration”. Hmmm… I thought it wouldn’t hurt to explore and search that inspiration…so I did. The site is basically a photojournal featuring tips, reviews, ideas and, of course, photography for…well, photographers. It is a creative site. It is a straightforward site. It is a site that makes you look at the game of pool, or a squirrel, or even a mango in a different perspective.
For someone who works most days looking for hidden beauty, searching for a different perspective, highlighting unknown details, uncovering forgotten and untold stories, and writing about it all, I was humbled to discover I’d lost sight of that inspiration, even if only for a short time. Yet, I was immediately thankful I had accidentally discovered a great source of inspiration when I needed it so much.
You don’t have to be in a funk like me to appreciate Photography Blogger’s site. Take some time and see what you can discover in the photo collections. Here’s to new discoveries!
