I find photos or pictures of city streets, in the rain, the fog, the snow, or some moody sort of weather really inspiring. They capture a mood that I want to capture in my writing. Here's a perfect example.

When I get discouraged with writing, I look at things like this and it keeps me going. It's a drive to communicate what I feel when I look at something like this.

PS Brian is a fantastic photographer who travels widely and always has wonderful photos like this up on his blog!

Oh, yes, very beautiful. I'm profoundly effected by beautiful images, as well.

I'm glad you all like it! This is a picture of Prague - I live in Seattle, but the rain and the filtered grey sky is very reminiscent of home. ;)
