Vision

Here is a post from my site http://www.dapontephotography.com

Photography by Steve daPonte

What’s your creative vision?

Vision takes form as multiple sensations that can be manifested in the reality of here and now or in an imagined place. A concept or idea that has yet to be brought into existence by a brief or sustained burst of creative energy contained within all of us. So hard-fought and time intensive it seems to enter this place of creative vision with all that confronts us in our everyday lives.

The reality is the biggest obstacle to creativity is our own inner critic that beats us over the head with doubt, shame and basic negative trash. You drive the creative bus and whatever stops you choose along the way and whom ever you choose to come along for the ride is ultimately your choice. By that same logic start kicking off your riders that have been riding for far too long. You know who they are…
