INSPIRATION STRIKES, WHAT HAPPENS NEXT IS UP TO YOU

I know this is completely “off brand” but here we go. Fugget. Can that just be “my brand?” “Fugget?!”…it’s applicable to so many things.

ANYWHO…

I was working the other day, and had to run some deliveries and errands, when out of no where an open field caught my eye. I don’t know if it was the golden grassy (I won’t pretend to be agro savvy) or the scenic wooded backdrop. But I knew I needed to do a shoot with a friend (and fellow in town business owner!) and some of their product. We’d spoken about it about a year ago, and an urgency flew under my ass. Or was it a fire?

Calling her up on my way back into work, I frantically told her, “If I had the time, I’d stop in and we could hammer this idea out. But we’re gonna have to wing it. You in?!” So we chatted briefly about the details. You need to be ready by sunset. Open field. Let’s do this. The weather gave us a run for our money throughout the day, raining off and on. Thankfully it was absolutely perfect at the time we needed it. I was pleased with the results. And thankful for a friend who knows how hectic and urgent I can be, and with the talent to follow through!

The pictures are a result of collaboration amongst the following businesses:

Designs on the Boulevard (photography & home decor) & their blog.

Wirthy Treasures (furniture & props) & their blog.

Sometimes you just have to take the inspiration when it comes. Although, usually for me, it’s right before bed. And then I’m up for hours working on something and lose track of time. Maybe I’ll keep a journal on my night stand? How do you deal with inspiration? What inspires you?

Stay bright, love always,

Bill Cunningham New York

This past weekend I went into a fashion film craze. I scoured Netflix for more fashion and more films, and in my search wound up stumbling upon Bill Cunningham New York (link to IMDb). Having very little knowledge of who this man is, and what he does, I immediately fell in love with his story, his passion, and his drive. Bill works for the New York Times and publishes articles of his photos of fashion on the streets of New York. He’s ballsy too, running backwards into on coming traffic just to get the right shot; let alone walking the streets of a city with a camera pointed at seemingly unexpected strangers. He does what he wants with his vision and just goes for it. Guts. I would highly recommend this film; and have done so to a friend I though would enjoy this due to his love of photography (you can follow him here!). 

 

Lately I’ve been so inspired, I hope you can feel some of that and spread it! 😀

Love,

Rey
