Inspiration Photos

So today is day 17 of the blogging challenge hosted by Rosalilium, and the prompt of the day is Walk to Work. Describe or photograph your walk to work. Or journey to work if you use transport. Is it pretty or incredibly dull? Can you find something of interest on your way?

If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you’ll know about my compulsion to take ‘inspiration photos’. Inspiration photos are what I use to inspire drawings, doodles and art journal pages whenever I’m feeling a bit stumped, or want to try something a bit new. I get inspired by these photos in different ways. Sometimes I’ll draw exactly what I’ve taken a photo of. Sometimes I’ll let the shapes of the subject inspire different patterns and doodles. Sometimes I’ll use a colour palette that features in a photo. Sometimes I’ll incorporate the composition of the photo but change the different elements. The possibilities are pretty much endless. Having said that, I seem to take hundreds of these photos, but I only ever use one or two.

Today I took a batch of ‘inspiration photos’ on my way to work:

I think I might set myself a little challenge, to try to push my creativity a bit more, and use some of these photos the way I always intend to (but rarely get round to)…. would you be interested in seeing my creations up on this blog?
