Have you ever been in a funk or just mentally beat down. I have an many people deal with it in many different ways. Some go and seclude themselves from the world and just want to be left alone and not bothered. I use to feel that way at times, but I found at those moments of feeling alone or just mentally beat down I was most creative. You get creative moments and ideas at random times acting on them is the most important thing. With photography I get inspiration and ideas from music. Music and photography are very similar in the way that music you use your creative thoughts in words and photography you do it through picture. Have you every really looked at an album cover from a musician? Take a moment and look at what you think the artist is trying to tell through his album work before you listen to his songs.
