P.A. Moed invites photographers to share images of what it is that inspires them.

I find myself wondering what is…inspiration?

Scott Barry Kaufman (Why Inspiration Matters?) writes that inspiration awakens us to new possibilities by allowing us to transcend our ordinary experiences and limitations. Inspiration propels a person from apathy to possibility, and transforms the way we perceive our own capabilities. Inspiration may sometimes be overlooked because of its elusive nature.

a child?

a weed?

or an invitation by Mother Nature to be … still.
