Photo Story Friday ~ Uninspired

PhotoStory Friday
Hosted by Cecily and MamaGeek

I have been feeling completely uninspired lately.
Uncreative, listless, and tired.
I don't know if it has been the weather or what.
I haven't even wanted to pick up my camera.
When I do I feel like every picture I take is crap.
Then a few days ago the baby lambs started arriving at our neighbors down the hill.
Every morning they when we drive by Bug and I ooooh and ah at their cuteness.
The weather was gorgeous today so I took some time on my lunch break and headed out with my camera. Of course the sun was out and at a harsh angle.
Every picture I took looked washed out. I couldn't get it right.

When I got to the lambs field there were all of two within shooting range. I had to peer over a bunch of dead blackberry vines to try and shoot them. The rest were far away taking their afternoon naps. There was none of the running and jumping in a huge pack that we see every morning.

I walked back up the hill to my house a bit let down.
I had finally gotten inspired by something and it didn't work out.... again.
Then as I walked toward my house I saw this image.

The mountain reflected in my office window.
That's when I decided that there shouldn't ever be a reason for me to feel uninspired when I have this reflection to look at every day.

oooo girl....that last shot! stunning!

I do know what you mean though. I have been taking my camera EVERYWHERE with me, as I'm tired of missing the perfect moment, and re-creating them never works. ie. the lambs are never there when I finally go to take their pics. argh.

If that was the view outside my window at home, I'd never leave the house. WOW! Simply breathtaking! You have some prime property there, so beautiful...
