Bolt of Inspiration Series, Part Two

It’s been raining, it’s been overcast, it’s been that type of day, and a good dose of inspiration was required. There is nothing like a good quote or a fantastic image to get those wheels turning and the creative juices flowing. As a continuation of my previous post, Part One, I share with you Part Two.

Prepare to be inspired and enjoy.

    • I love that image Brendan – it is a beautiful shot. The colour of the water was a perfect cap to the image at the start of the series. Thank you! And I hope you found some quotes in there to use.

    • Yes, Robert Brault’s quote resonated with me today actually. I took a different route from my usual and lo and behold, stumbled on a few new pieces of street art and a bakery I knew nothing about. I am glad you enjoyed the images!

  1. Hello Marina ! Once again to say to you that I like much your blog and i think that the selection of the photos is brilliant.
    I am very satisfied of that you have included one of my photos in this blog… Thank you !
    Un saludo desde España !

  2. Don’t you just love the differences. You are seeking inspiration on a wet day. This weekend we had our first real rains and everyone is rejoicing. With your eyes open, life is an experience on the run. Differences provide more opportunity for experience. And so on …

    I like these inspirational runs.
