When Inspiration Strikes

Walking with Cake: Inspiration shot

(A little experiment.)

I’m always on the lookout for new blogging ideas, and last week, I received a copy of FLOR’s new catalog.  While I’m not currently in the market for new floor coverings, I always find their photos so pretty and inspiring.  FLOR’s most recent publication, for Fall 2013, is especially stunning, and uses fashion to showcase their new products.  You can read more about it on their blog, and see some of the gorgeous photographs, too.

Walking with Cake: After the Party

I was especially struck by the catalog’s cover (the final photo on their blog post), and it is now on my wall of inspiration behind my computer screen.  I was staring at it the other day, and realized that I could try my hand at my own little photo shoot, just for fun.  I’m not a professional stylist or photographer by any means, and I tell stories through words.  But I thought it would be fun and challenging to try to tell a story through pictures.  And since I was alone, it would have to be with objects.  So I grabbed a few “props” and got to work.

Walking with Cake: Playing around

(Just for fun.)

It only took a few minutes and I snapped a few photos, but it was kind of fun, and maybe I’ll try it again from time to time, just to mix things up.

Do you ever find inspiration in surprising places?
