Where do you find inspiration?

A few years ago I stumbled upon a rather intriguing pool of photo on Flickr ~ Found Photographs ~ where folks post photos they have literally found ~ in old books, on the street, in antique shops, etc.  Looking at them can either take me back to the days when I too wore those ridiculous fashions or woke up to a similarly decorated Christmas tree ~ but more often I am drawn to the photos from an age ago and I wonder what that person would think of their image touching someone in our time.  Those older photos seem somehow more soulful and I find stories forming in my mind as I look into their eyes ~ and yes sometimes those stories wind up in Cobblestone Circle.  

I am especially amused by the facial expressions in group photos.

Here's a small sampling of what I saw today:


Ok ~ sometimes they just make me scratch my head . . . . .

  1. I've also looked into the eyes of some of those old photos, and wondered...some seemed pretty scary! And then some of you can almost read the soulfulness, I can't imagine riding a longhorn though!
