Observe Things Around You and Get Inspired

September 24, 2013

Hopefully you all got a chance to check out the latest episode of the Cave Creek Geek where I talk about the Welcome to Cave Creek sign. During the video, I give some factoids about when the sign was erected and how it was part of an Eagle Scout project. After the video had been filmed, I was asked by my camera person how I had known those factoids. Quite simple, I try to be observant.

As we were walking up to the sign to start filming, I noticed information about the sign was posted on the back. There weren’t a bunch of details, but it did tell the date and the name of the scout. Of course I had remembered reading in the newspaper about the project, but I didn’t know all the details. Just making the observation on the back of the sign allowed me to give you more information during the video.

While the example above was more about noticing some information, the same is true about observing what is around you. As I have gotten more into photography, I’m always on the lookout for a nice scene. That happened recently when I saw a cool sunrise outside of our office. I quickly grabbed my camera and captured the shot before the sunrise was gone. I’ve embedded the photo posted on the Graphics Unleashed Facebook page below. Those reading via e-mail will only see a link to the post.

As you go through each day, make sure to observe things around you. Maybe you’ll learn something new and maybe you’ll have artistic inspiration. Just keep your eyes open and you never know what you’ll observe.
