who inspires me?

greg asks, 'Who inspires you?'  well...as a kid i loved looking at the photos in 'national geographic' and of course, ansel adams.  then this past summer, i started journaling and discovered photo journals.  i was in awe of some of the pictures i was seeing.  but....nature, landscapes, and wildlife have always motivated me to attempt to capture what i saw and felt when looking at a particular place or object....

Hey, I knew some kids that liked looking at National Geographic too ;~P.  You are right, the Photo Journals are an incredible source of inspiration.  I really enjoy seeing how other photographers interpret a scene.  It doens't matter how experienced you get, there will always be somebody with a fresh perspective on things right around the corner.

That was my answer too! There's so much beauty in the world isn't there? I've always loved taking pics ever since I had a little Kodak Brownie! Jeannette xx  http://journals.aol.co.uk/jlocorriere05/Welcometomytravels/
