While going through the pictures from last week's field trip to Annapolis, I found that I had taken several photographs of the surfaces I walked on. Their textures and patterns drew my eye throughout the day. Annapolis is a historical town so there was lots of interesting brick and stone. Here's what inspired me when I looked down:
Lots and lots of of brick walkways:
A Carpet in the Maryland State House - The oldest legislative building still in use.
A grate at the Naval Academy which featured a tony acorn in a hole:
And finally the long wooden planks of the dock:
I'm glad I took the time to look down a few times throughout the day. There were tons of other sights to see (which I will post soon), but something as simple as what I walked on stirred up all kinds of ideas. Take some time this weekend to look down at all of the different surfaces you walk on and may be they'll bring you inspiration too! Just be careful to look up sometimes too. I'd hate for you to walk into something and get injured while you were looking down at my suggestion! Have a great weekend!
