Man o man! Every so often when I'm just doing something mundane my visual antenna go up and I have to drop everything and search out the stimulus. Some times it's just something interesting but not photographic. I used to feel the need to photograph every sunset I witnessed but quickly realized that not that many are spectacular enough by themselves to warrant bringing out the camera. Some you just need to look at, enjoy for a minute and then go about your business, ya know?
I swear that I was just going to grab another cuppa-joe when I saw this little stack of crimini mushrooms that were left over from my lunch. I stood there with my empty cup and realized that I had to make a frame of it. Sometimes "cool" is all it needs to be. No client, no project, no reason other than it looked cool. Isn't that all the motivation we really need anyway?
