When you get 152 days into a 365 photo-a-day project, you are bound to have quite a few days where nothing looks right, there is no inspiration, and you struggle to find an interesting subject, much less a compelling story. The words above, while alluding to writer’s block, certainly can apply to the way I feel tonight.
I was out and about looking for a shot during the daylight hours and then again tonight in my office. The words – or images – weren’t coming easy, but I kept trying.
I decided to go with it and try to shoot how I felt. (Always a good way to get interesting stories, by the way.) What does it look like? And empty page – or canvas – came to mind. And after just a few minutes of shooting and a few more of processing, I think I found the cure to my creative block, at least for tonight. I’ll worry about what to shoot for day 153 tomorrow.
Day 152 of my 365 photo a day project.
