The Monday Morning WHIP // 178

It’s a good thing we looked, and looked again at Stan’s (http://branddna NULL.blogspot NULL.com) WHIP this week, especially as there was a mistake in the first line.

I was at a dinner the other day when a woman I was chatting to said that she thought I took great photos.

As you can imagine I was a little taken aback.

Turns out she was a follower of my Instagram feed.

Now I don’t know about you, but I don’t rate my photography skills at all. In fact I don’t even own a camera.

So I asked what it was that she liked about my Instagram photos.

“They’re always interesting,” she said. “And I love how they always look like you’ve put some thought into their composition.”

For me, her observation summed up what being a creative is all about – seeing what others can’t.

Looking past the obvious to see something new. Something interesting. Something unexpected.

And if you can’t see past the obvious, well look again.
