“Inspo” is a word I see online a lot. Obviously it’s a short form of “inspiration”, but it seems to me to imply a more informal kind of inspiration: it’s something that provokes an enthusiastic response, and possibly a desire for emulation.

The other day Pinterest served up this photo for me, and…well, for me, that’s straight-up inspo of the highest order. This is almost precisely the kind of vibe I find myself striving for these days: a soft and cool poofy shirt, worn under a pair of softly broken-in bib overalls, and a fun hat. (Maybe I’m not wearing this kind of hat specifically, but…hey, you never know.)

I have no idea what the source of this photo is, and I’ve looked, using both Google’s Image Search and Bing’s. At this point I can’t credit this creator, but if it’s yours, let me know. For me it’s not just fashion inspo, it’s also photography inspo! The pose is genuine and cheerful, and the bushes are placed in such a way as to create both background and foreground bokeh. The light is also terrific, providing a bit of side-light and back-light. Portraiture is a fascinating genre of photography that I don’t know a whole lot about, yet.

Do you find random inspo in different places? Or do you seek it out?

    I am inspired by random things, in random places, though music is involved in a plurality of things.
