Photo-A-Day #1839

Tonight I got caught up in some things around the house and didn’t make it outside to get a photo so I looked around the house. I found Allison’s bowl filled with seashells. I love the close up details on a seashell and at the same time needed to find a place to shoot the shell. I settled on the rug in the bedroom because I pictured seeing this seashell on the surface of Mars.

Every once in a while you have to take a step back and look at the things around you. Then you turn them on their heads, you pull a 180, you pinwheel. Sometimes looking at the usual situation in an unusual way can change your perspective. I think my major problem in the creativity department (and I mean becoming creative to follow my passions and earn a living from that) is that I just can’t see how my talents can be used to make a sustainable living for my family outside of a traditional job environment. I’ve read books on the subject like Crush It and Career Renegade and I even have a coach but I am still not getting it. There is some mental block I have that I am using to prevent myself from taking that leap.

    Don’t deny yourself the idea that you do great photography that many people obviously enjoy checking out. You’d be amazed how many prints of things like seashells sell as posters or gift card images. Just think of all the furniture stores that have those kinds on displays to make model rooms feel homey.
    Good luck.
