On March 17th, St. Patrick’s Day, we embarked on an early adventure to Ohiopyle. This was my first trip there but my roommates had been telling me that it was beautiful out there and that I would be able to come back with some beautiful shots. I was excited to get my chance to see it but not excited about waking up.
Once arriving, we were asked if we wanted to take the easy trail or the hard trail to our destination. At this point I felt like Alice from Alice in Wonderland. Throughout that story Alice was asked many times to make a decision and at this point I was asked the very same question. Which would it be?
Since it was still early, I chose to take the easy trail with the majority of the class. I was having difficulty finding inspiration in my surroundings. Now that I know what I want my theme to be and when I go to look for it, I can’t find it. It’s kind of like the writer of Peter Pan, J.M. Barrie. He had loads of failed plays, one after another. It wasn’t until he took his mind off of writing the perfect play that he finally wrote the perfect play.
I feel as though I need to keep my mind off of taking pictures for my cohesive portfolio but instead just go out and have fun taking pictures and then find the perfect ones later on. I will find my inspiration again.
