special photo challenge : inspiration

The Daily Post put out this special photo challenge, and I thought I’d try to work with it. Here’s the description: “What inspires you to blog? We blog because there are people, places, things, and ideas that we care about so much we can’t help but tell the world about them. We want to know what inspires you. For this special mid-week photo challenge, we want to see portraits of you doing something that inspires you to blog.”

Since there are a variety of things that inspire me to blog, I had to include a variety of photos.

I’ve included some real vintage stuff for your entertainment. The oldest photos are 10 years old, when I started tiling the side of my house. I was grouting the blue wall in 2004, and working on the green tiles in 2006. I remember when I saw that particular photo I was wondering who that grey haired woman was and why was she working with my tiles? The carving and printing photos are from the last couple of years, and the mocha cookie production was done this past week-end. You can see me slicing the rolls of dough, and then dipping the baked cookies in yummy chocolate. As you can see from these photos, I never do things in a small way. It’s just not my nature.

There are lots of other things that inspire me to blog, but I see most people only posted one photo. I think I’d best stop before I get carried away.

  1. I loved your photos. I always wanted to be an artist but ended up being an engineer like the billions of others on this planet. I have immense respect for people who follow their dreams and make their own path. You are so inspiring.

    1. Thanks so much. I couldn’t be an engineer if I tried – I’m totally pathetic with numers – always have been and probably always will be! When I’m making something that needs to be calculated or measured, I do it about 3 times to try and be safe!
