Travel outside my door

When I'm feeling like I'm stuck in a bit of rut creatively I always go back to photos of past travels.  I love visiting new places and after photography, travel is one of my biggest passions and indulgences.  The feeling I get when I walk around a new city - that feeling of promise, adventure and embracing the unknown - is inspiring and exciting.  While I love living in New York I think that sometimes I take it for granted and forget that if ever I need to feel that rush of visiting a new place I just have to walk out the door and pick a random subway stop.  It's hard to look at your hometown with fresh eyes but studying the details of what's happening all around is something that you can do anywhere regardless of whether it's a familiar place or not.  There's always something happening in New York City and there's always a cool way of looking at it even if it seems like just another day.
