I had passed over this bridge a countless number of times before, but it took an early Autumn thunderstorm and a new angle to garner the image above. Most of all, the inception of this photograph took vigilance in seeking creative fuel to fire the spark of inspiration. Just as with opportunity, inspiration knocks and the apt answer. As a professional photographer awareness and creativity on demand are a job requirement. Though the ability to do those things on demand arrives only after many hours of diligence. From this perseverance with your craft and creative eye images materialize, and eventually the ability to tap into the stream of imagination and awareness to assist others in bringing their ideas to light.
I would encourage everyone with creative ambitions large and small to tackle without heed the challenges you face in your endeavors.
“A man’s work is nothing but this slow trek to rediscover, through the detours of art, those two or three great and simple images in whose presence his heart first opened.” (Albert Camus)
