A great theme from Tina Schell at Lens Artists. Inspiration is such an important part of the creative process! We need it like we need oxygen. I find a lot of inspiration in my travels and have been struggling this year, not being able to travel because of Covid-19. But I have a few Muses right here at home. They are always available and I often go to them for inspiration.
The Pacific Ocean is an eternal muse. I’m very inspired by it and, luckily, it’s always there for me, majestic and exciting, calming and inspiring. (ICM photography)
Other constant source of inspiration are my beautiful Agave plants. I have several at home and have been photographing them for years, mostly in abstract form using ICM technique.
Modern Architecture is another constant source of inspiration for me, be it here in L.A. or in my many travels.
Finally, I am always inspired by Color, which I use often on my abstracts. (ICM photography)
It’s been a while since I last posted here. Have been busy and too lazy to go through unused door photos… Here are some Venice Beach doors, taken last Saturday on a walk I shouldn’t have taken because, although wearing masks and keeping our distance, there was a big crowd and not everyone was wearing a mask. Fingers crossed!

Less is not enough.
And then I stop and sit and eat.
Jy is wat jy dink - nie wat jy dink jy is nie. Dit help soms om hardop te lag vir wat jy dink of dink jy is.
