Keeping An Inspiration Journal

Keeping An Inspiration Journal

This is such a fun idea...reminds me of the excitement of getting new school supplies each fall and wanting to fill those beautiful notebooks with all sorts of magic! Look at this journal page and the images that came from it, wow!

Heather Boyles shares, "As artists, we find inspiration all around us. At times that inspiration is realized in our images, other times that inspiration gets lost. I wanted a place to organize my thoughts and develop ideas so I started an 'inspiration journal.' In my journal I paste images that inspire me, locations I want to use, quotes that speak to my heart and other ramblings. I find that journaling feeds my creative soul and keeps my love of photography alive. The journal entries are often a work-in-progress. Here I am sharing one journal entry that I've worked on over the past month. I started with a snap shot of a field I admired and the concept grew from there. I shopped for the perfect clothing and decided how I wanted the shots to look. The final images often take on a life of their own but I always appreciate the journey. I highly recommend starting your own inspiration journal!"

Visiting Paris has always been on my bucket list and my two best friends and I have been talking about planning a trip for what seems like forever. Finally, one day while perusing flight deals we decided to just go for it. The plan was to travel to Paris first, London second and take the train back and forth. In hindsight, flying into Paris would've been much easier, especially after a long flight and jet lag. But easy doesn't make great memories! The train was actually quite convenient and a great way to relax after a long flight. You can buy snacks (and WINE) for your 2 hour trip without even leaving the station.
