In which I am in SO much trouble.

Okay, I think I've officially enterted inspiration overload mode. In the last couple of days I've come across SO MUCH visually inspiring stuff, I think it may have actually fried my brain. It's so much, I can't process it all. I need to let it settle just so I can make sense of it.

I keep my pictures on flickr and have enjoyed the "Explore" function for a few years now--long before I started uploading my own photos there. Only recently, however, have I started using the "favorites" feature to start a little bookmarking portfolio of other people's images I find enchanting. So here's the rabbit hole...I find an image, bookmark it and then of course keep looking through the person's images for more inspiration. More bookmarks. Then, I think, AH HA! If I like this person's stuff, what are the odds I will like the pictures THEY have marked as favorites? So then I go and check out THEIR favorite images and suddenly I have about 20 new favorites, and 20 new people to look at all of THEIR favorites! IT NEVER ENDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And, as if I needed more, now I've discovered two additional sites, ffffound.com and behance.net. They both are full to the brim of visual inspiration, and like I said, I think it's all become too much. My head is going to explode.
