Travel is a great source of inspiration for me. Sometimes I find that I get tired of the same view and the same thing everyday. Its nice to shake it up a bit and see somewhere different. You don’t necessarily have to go far, even a trip to a different part of where you live can give you a burst of inspiration and can help you see things in a different way. The photos I have chosen this week, show three different ways of looking at your surroundings.

Creative Lessons: We all have a tendency to look straight ahead or directly at what is in our field of vision. Try looking up and capturing the surroundings of what is above you. In the 2nd photo, a familiar beach scene but no water. Use the opportunity to capture something that tells a different story about your visit. In the 3rd photo, people spending the day at the beach. Laying in the sand, sitting in chairs, playing in the water all make the photo more interesting because there is so much going on.

Have a great Wednesday everyone.
