I found Inspiration’s hiding spot.

It was ducking behind running my own business.

I’m amazed at how often inspiration has struck for me since turning my passion back into a hobby instead of my bread and butter. For starters, I have photographed so much more! (Thanks in part to the compact size of my new X100F). I’m carrying a camera with me everywhere these days. I haven’t done that in probably eight years.

I’ve been struck with writing inspiration and have jotted down several topics I want to cover for work. I’ve started a new photography project (just last night actually) that I’m really excited about. Not sure when, or if, I’ll share it here. But I also now have a running list of ideas.

The pleasure I’ve received through writing and taking pictures is unparalleled as of late. Everything feels fresh and I love it. Now that I’m not focused on creating something that fits into a specific mold or style, it’s like my eyes have been opened and I’m seeing beauty clearly for the first time.

Lighting falling through the trees, the colors on a leaf, the shape of the shadows created as light cascades through the window blinds… So much beauty all around me that I rarely took the time to document. Now, I can’t help myself. And why should I?

I want to be the person who pulls over on the side of the road to photograph the sunset. Or the person who camps out at a little sidewalk cafe just so I can photograph the light peaking between the buildings across the street during golden hour.

I want to be the person who appreciates and acknowledges the ordinary beauty of the every day.

What kind of person do you want to be?
