Photography is 90% inspiration. We photograph what moves us. Those things that catch our eye, our attention. Things we think we can “do” something with. When we are moved, we do great work.
Of course that leaves 10% (maybe more, I’ve haven’t applied a statistical model to these made up numbers).
What about taking pictures when you are not moved? When there just doesn’t really seem to be anything to photograph?
Take pictures anyway. See what emerges. Chances you’ll end up with fairly boring photos (like an orphaned pair of gloves on the street) but at least you are keeping momentum going.
