Other Ways to be Creative: Photography

After those last two posts about marketing, I need to return to my safe spot of creating.

I feel much better than being an artist in the world than a marketer in world.  I need to keep art and creativity in my life daily.  A good friend of mine recently said that we to practice living spontaneously because spontaneity  is like a muscle you need to stretch or when you try to have spontaneity, you break or it doesn't feel good.  I love that thought.

I think creativity and art is something you also need to do daily-- and there are SO many ways to do it.

I do other creative things as well as writing including a little photography and graphic design. In fact, I'm actually entering a few photos in a local arts festival this month.  I'll share them after festival.

Some of you know I'm doing a series of photos called "Have Typewriter, Will Travel," where I take my typewriter to interesting places and photograph it.





Here are a few photographs I've taken over the last month...

This is from my beach series where I photograph what I find after a walk to the beach.

You Are An Acceptable Amount of Threat


I also sew, paint, and garden for creative activities.

What do you like to do?  And if you have any of your work online, include a link...

Here's a link to the full article (Also, the image of the dancer is better here than what I was able to upload to my blog.)



If clockwise, then you use more of the right side of the brain and vice versa.

Most of us would see the dancer turning anti-clockwise though you can try to focus and change the direction; see if you can do it.

presents possibilities
impetuous
