Seeing the Extraordinary in the Ordinary

Perspective is literally about how you look at things. Do you ever notice the potential in something seemingly mundane, becoming the building blocks to something more?

I think that if you have a creative mind, you can never truly switch that off. Inspiration can hit you anywhere, at any time and I think that’s wonderful! We are all deep thinkers, hungry for experience and thirsty for knowledge.. I remember being told that curiosity and creativity are both human nature, and that we all want to leave our mark on the world. When you think about how vast the worldly possibilities are, it’s a wonder we ever get ‘bored!’.

I can’t imagine being bored, or having enough hours in the day. Simply look around you at what you can change!

From an artistic point of view, I suppose my overall desire is to enable the viewer to see ‘stuff’ out of ‘other stuff’. Articulate, isn’t it!?

Here are some photos of things I have done, to assist me in my explanation:

I find there are always ideas on the internet to start you off on your exploration, whether you follow a tutorial or just wing it (always fun). Join Pinterest and Tumblr, think long and hard before you throw something away, get lost on YouTube and never be bored again!
