When I want inspiration, ideas for natural compositions or just plain old visual "eye candy", I go to my period wallpaper collections gathered from various old homes under renovation on the Bonavista Peninsula, Newfoundland. I have hundreds if not thousands of shots. I sort and resort them in various ways. I imagine the lives and stories that these remnants store. Each is a perfect composition in its own right. Here are my selections for today.

And then there are floors...

These are inspiring indeed, Margaret. I like the ones with wood showing through.

It is so interesting to see where one gets inspiration--- and to see that we love some of the same things but end up with such different work.

I think the best thing about my wallpaper photos is the natural layers that are created by tearing back to the final layer of board. It is so much like looking back through time.

All of the blogs I follow all feature topics 'themes that are of interest to me and the work created is usually different from mine. the individual spin is always so refreshing.
