We are all inundated by what we see on the internet. I find so much on the internet, facebook, and pinterest that inspires me. Too much sometimes. To be inspired but not to find things to desire. I am sure many of my mother friends read this article this week and felt they could relate. I know I do. Its too much sometimes to see all that is out there, all that we desire, all that we want to accomplish.
I think the trick is to set up your own filters. To be able to say thats really cool and maybe someday Ill do that but my focus right now is….(my children, health, family, business…fill in the blank). I like pinterest as I can store these things for another day…or at least that is what I tell myself. That I will someday do all the things I desire but I refuse to waste any more time dwelling on all I haven’t accomplished and think about what I can do today. That doing something useful today is better than wasting hours thinking about what I won’t get done.
So my goal is to each week recap the things that inspired me. As a photographer I am constantly looking at other people’s work. It helps me expand my own mind and make my own judgements.
Here are some things/photos that inspired me this week:
loving this photograph
I have been wanting to make a camera strap
Need to find a way to do something with this for this years anniversary
Love that the kids drew the people
Beautiful lighting and portrait
I am missing the bighorns now that it is spring…and fishing with my brother.
