Inspiration - Nature's Gift

What do you get when you add up a change of scenery plus a change of season? An explosion of creative energy and inspiration. I have spent the last few days walking the streets of London. While I had planned to spend all day every day soaking up creative inspiration from the masters in museums and galleries, I have instead spent the glorious parts of each day enjoying the neighborhood streets and parks. Nature has a great way of smacking us upside the head every now and then, saying wake up and enjoy life now - no app required. Here are a few of my pics for inspiration.

 Nature in Spring - what a teacher for getting a color palette right.

 The beautiful London parks - a great way to welcome spring and to start dreaming of new creations.

 Some of the birds hanging out in the London parks. I love the "eyes" in the fence and in the peacock feathers.

 Even the ground inspires thoughts of colors, textures, and patterns.

Colors, textures, lighting, composition, movement, LIFE - the stories are all around us. What's inspiring you these days?
