What Inspires

Pat from The Weaver of Grass is hosting Inspiration Wednesday today. Paticipants are posting about what is inspiring to them. According to Pat "your inspiration can be picture or painter, poem or poet, animal or bird, book or author, teacher, relative, friend, statesman, absolutely anything that "turns you on" artistically or otherwise." Click here to be taken to the list of participants. Yes!! More blogs to visit!!

For me, inspiration comes in many forms. From objects. From experiences. From memories. From concepts. From people. From places.

I can be inspired by...

Light


Simplicity


Serendipity


Time


The Sea


The Sky


Nature's Wonders


Challenge


Color


New York City


Rust


Hope


Majesty


Graffiti


Texture


Mystery


Other Artists and Bloggers

Oh, my yes! Isn't it just the best life to live? One of constant inspirations???? God surely must love us to give us such a gift.
And, you Seth....are inspiring to me =) Thank you.

MrCachet said...

LOL. I knew nothing of Inspiration Wednesday - until now! I took one look at yours and especially your last - where's the guys? No men in that shot. All women. So many questions I have, and all you title it is 'other artists and bloggers'?

That ain't an Altered Page, Seth. If it's other artists and bloggers you should have included the TimeMachine.
;o)

Hello Seth,

Just visiting via Weaver. Your own bundle meme obviously inspired a lot of people too. Your selection here is very colourful and shows the huge range of things that can inspire, if we look.

Chris said...

I love this. Your photos, of course, are stunning. That green canyon, what is that? I will visit the link, because lately I have been butting up against only a million blogs per week, and I need more! More! MORE!!! Bwaaahahahahaaaa!!

you inspire me, but I won't tell her that. I mean, how many times do people have to hear that, really?

Jane Moxey said...

This was such a cool way to interpret Weaver's meme theme! Thanks for the wonderful photographs which I enjoyed looking at so much. An excellent reminder to keep one's one's eyes wide open and a camera handy.

Bea said...

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

Talk about inspiration! Your photos are inspiring to me. I guess I'd have to put your blog first on my list of "what inspires" me. Truly wonderful representation of your thoughts.

Now that my bottom is permanently glued to this computer chair, I'll see you tomorrow and the 1st for my two disintegration projects. Can't do just one day, since you really inspired me with the disintegration collaboration.
