Creative Outlet - Top 20 Images From My Personal Collection

Creative energy is what motivates me, but it comes in swings and roundabouts. One thing I have discovered recently about creative energy is when I have it, I have to use it. 

The creative outlet that seems to have the biggest swings (from 0% to 100% interest), is photography. Sometimes all I want to do is take photos and then for months, my camera bag will sit in the closet collecting dust. 

This collection of images gives a clue to when I'm most inspired to take photos, on holiday. I guess I'm at my most relaxed and inspired by all the new eye-candy about. A good reason for me to go on more holidays...

From NZ, to Germany, to Canada, to the States, I bring you 20 of my favourite images from my personal collection. For one reason, or another, I have a strange attachment to every single one of these images.

Please feel free to comment or ask questions. Cheyney xx
