Was looking for inspiration and decided to go for a walk with just my Macro lens. I find if I limit myself to just one lens with limited capability it forces me to be creative when I shoot. How do you force creative inspiration? Here are some samples of photos I took:
I find if I have to "force" creativity it really works for me. If I am in a rut (and it happens often) going through some of my older images or even watching youtube videos and digging through the older forum posts I can sometimes find something to fire me up or inspire me.
Like the first one the most, the DoF and colours are great.
I like all three. Very well done.

Because we are all photographers, and photography is a creative process, we are all creative by nature. Our mood dictates the direction of our creativity at any particular time. It's recognising that creativity that's the trick - sometimes it's hammering on the back door of our subconscious but we are too pre-occupied with other things to notice. We should pay more attention.
Of course, carrying a camera at all times will help force that attention to the fore.
The last photo seems to me the most successful, in fact it is not easy to get such a beautiful picture unexpectedly!
