“This world is but a canvas to our imagination.” -Henry David Thoreau
Thoreau is my absolute favorite writer. His words never cease to make me think and inspire my creative self. In pondering this quote, what came to me is that as photographers we need to use our imagination to see beyond the things in our photos such that the images that we create elicit an emotional response from the viewer. Often times this means abandoning all the "rules" of "good" photographs. Abstract photos are a perfect way to do this.
Today, ignore the rules and inspire us to feel deeply when we look at your image.
