Creative Block


I think i'm having a bit of a creative block at the moment. Since my outing to Pickering I haven't really had the camera out and now I just haven't got any inspiration. Of course the weather doesn't help either, it's been pretty miserable and windy.
I've been wanting to take pictures of autumn, but because I work long hours during the week it means I dont have much light left to take any landscapes when I get home. Then last weekends weather wasn't very good either. Anyway I got my camera out tonight and decided I would try my hand at still life again. I got a few rocks from the garden and a leaf and took these. Not what you would call very creative but it's made me get my camera out again. I just needed that push I think. Hopefully Saturday will bring a better and a more creative day.

Hi Carol,
I have the same problem like you some times your mind just draws a blank. Nothing really inspires you but I think the remedy is exactly what you did just take some objects and start taking pictures. Actually I really like the result.Keep on taking pictures you are an excellent photographer.

Hi Carol,

I like your pebble photos very much too, they are nice in tones and shape.

And about creativity or better: no creativity: don't worry to much about, that happens anytime to every one of us. I had that too many times! Bring in those moments just one of your older pictures up. I'm sure you have in your archives some that we have not seen already, right? :)

Don't let yourself be stressed out, if you don't feel like photographing today, then maybe tomorrow... This mentality is what I've learned here in the "deep South". :)

Thankyou so much both Sue and Mike. It's nice to see that it's not just me that suffers and also that my faithful friends stick by me and still visit in my dark time. LOL
