Inspiration can strike anywhere.
Alright, so this is a writers blog, not a photo blog. But photos can be powerful tools for a writer in a number of ways. One of these is providing inspiration, or in this case recording of inspiration. So, here are a few photos showing some beautiful scenes which recently inspired and cheered me. Also, I really enjoy sharing beauty with others. I suspect more pictures will be forthcoming in this space as winter gives over grudgingly to early spring.
We got some snow recently which actually stuck. Not much, only about a quarter or maybe half an inch. But on my way to a quite early class that morning (through the still-falling snow) I was greeted by these gorgeous scenes. Yes, that is a Norman Cathedral. Yes, that is a castle. And yes, they are attached to my Uni and my department is right next door to both. I squee inside every time I walk by them.
Inspiration is a funny thing. It strikes unexpectedly, and from a variety of situations. Sometimes it starts a train of thought which becomes a best-selling novel or a masterpiece of fine art. And sometimes it merely stimulates your mind, starting no particular trains of thought, only a general feeling. I have racked my brain for several days for ways to describe this feeling. I find myself at a loss for words. Some feelings can only be evoked, not described.
Have you ever found something so beautiful it evoked an indescribable feeling in the artistic centers of your brain?
