Ideas are always around, but sometimes it's hard to get inspired. I shot this in my backyard of a sunflower that has not yet bloomed. Well it has now, but not in this image. So Sometimes when I don't have any inspiration or ideas coming for designing something or for photography I have to just do something. By doing something and not standing still, eventually I'll get inspired to move in a certain direction. Then it grows and I start getting a little passionate or obsessive about it. Then I exhaust that idea and move on to the next and let my old thoughts and ideas sit on the back burner. Ideas come, but you have to open up and let your surroundings inspire you. Be grateful for what you have and be humble enough to see the most basic of ideas that can come to light if you just experiment a little. Don't just sit waiting, be active and creative.
