Daily Inspiration | Blinding Perspectives

Makes me think of the way the oils burst from an orange peel when twisted over an Old Fashioned. There’s even a little red in there for the cherries, the rays diluting through the ice. It makes me think of the hot days and cold drinks ahead, lying in the grass and staring up at the trees and phone lines. Summer’s here.

Blinding Perspective

You all know I’m a bit of a color junkie. With spring having sprung with a record-shattering March heat wave, I have been broadening my usual cool weather color palette inspiration and waking back up to warm, sunny, bright colors. So when this popped up in my Facebook newsfeed, I knew I had to share it with you for the Daily Inspiration.

Photo courtesy of my former coworker and all around badass, Scott Saint Hilaire. I love how sometimes you get the best photos in normally uninspiring places, like on the way out the door at work. That’s where Scott snapped this with his iPhone 4. Scott says:

I looked to the left, and the sun was hitting everything so perfectly, so I whipped out the phone and snapped a quick picture.

A bit of photo processing with Hipstamatic and Iris, and you have this gorgeous shot. Which strangely makes me want to drink a beverage I don’t even like.

You can more of his Photography on Instagram. His band, The Brigantines, rocks out in New Jersey.

I got a pretty good shot outside my job on Saturday as well! Check it out over on the Leave Me to My Projects Facebook page. It’s my cover photo of the moment, but expect it to change frequently as I rediscover my photography muscles.
