Daily inspiration, talented dashes

Talent is a gift that can either be nurtured & refined or just be there as an originating force. It’s fascinating how simple it may look like with a few dashes but oh so hard to accomplish it with such finesse.

Daily inspiration, talent

I’m an admirer of all kinds of talent that people posses. And the time & passion they invest in things they love. It’s worth an applause!

Daily inspiration, lamps

Beautiful lights are always interesting and attractive. These are more art than just ceiling lights with their shape, wonderful materials, shimmering inside & longer sweeping cord.

Sober maturity

It might be wrong to call these images for “mature” but by that I mean a more adult style, more conventional. It is perhaps not quite the right expression – traditional, understandable, predictable, classical, timeless & so on. A bit of a hotel feeling, perhaps a little impersonal because it’s not decorated, in the sense that it doesn’t overflows with things. Few well chosen items such as art, antiques that breathes style, heavy draped curtains & so on.

It’s usually liberating environments with everything in its place. Often organised, very tidy & neat. It can of course be colourful, slightly playful but in a sober manner. Still, in lots of different styles – classical, city, rural, modern, as well as various expressions & materials of course.

Street art

We are hired as private drivers, part-time, usually involuntarily & unprepared – I may not have told you that! It’s various activities, dinners, gigs & other we are asked to drive our boys to, and it’s unpredictable. To put it nicely – we get to see places we otherwise wouldn’t. Different suburbs, neighbourhoods & areas where they usually meet with friends.

So in other words, inspiration from the streets today – it’s not about aesthetics, it’s about peoples creativity. The way people can change the street scene, not through architecture but by being ingenious in a simple, down to earth-way. What’s exciting is that it can turn up anywhere & unexpected. It makes me think about the person behind & the reasoning. I call it street art, where others might look at it as clutter or graffiti…perhaps.
