:sad: Is anyone else having trouble with inspiration lately?

I feel like I'm stuck in a rut. Maybe it is the lack of color and life, or actual sunlight for that matter, but it sucks and I don't like it.:confused:
We should totally have a 'pout' smiley. ;) :p

or maybe I should get my B12 levels checked again.......:thumbup:

To find inspiration I do a couple of things ... I either 1) go searching Flickr or similar for types of photos that I haven't taken yet ... might be a boats reflection with a sunset, or a silhouette of a person on the rocks at the beach ... or 2) I decide to focus strongly on one particular type of photography ... like I have done recently with HDR.
TT has been doing this with B&W's of People in strong light/shadow scenes.

I know what my next focus will be I think and hope to start producing some in the next week. No, I'm not saying what that is yet ;)

Sounds like you need a project:

7 Photography Projects to Jumpstart your Creativity (http://digital-photography-school.com/7-photography-projects-to-jumpstart-your-creativity)

Mine this week is different perspectives inspired by an off topic thread I posted recently called 5th and 7th. It inspired me yesterday to look at things in at different angles. I also checked out a recent article by Darwin Wiggett in Outdoor Photography Canada called "Breaking the Rules...and that also seemed to inspire me a little.

That or perhaps you need a ROAD TRIP!! ....:thumbup: :clap:
Best of luck in finding inspriation!
