Oh yes.. I don't call it stock block just a creative slump!

Often to go for photos is like to go for fishing ... if you want to get a fish too strongly you may be disappointed with.

I find that I'm of two minds. Either I plan the image for stock, or I go out walking and take personal shots. I rarely find I get good stock photo images without planning them... Take this shot on my blog:, probably be good as a stock shot, but the crop is too much to submit. If I wanted to get it for stock, I'd have to bring a tripod and telephoto and spend some time on it :)

My camera is always with me, which is why I have a high quality compact. My mind is subdivided - shooting for stock, shooting for matt and frame (I do gallery exibits and print sales), and black and white or colour. So if I am not inspired in one part of my brain, the other part will kick in. There are images everywhere...
