The Tuesday Inspiration: Naturally refreshing

by Helen Hooker March. 05, 2013 4167 views

Having lasted almost two years between colds one of my pupils has generously passed some of their bugs on to me this week and I've spent today sneezing, coughing and wheezing violently. This left me in no state to teach so I've spent the day lazing at home, watching daytime TV and loading software onto the new laptop computer I bought yesterday. While I wasn't feeling hugely inspired to spend ages on my photo for today it was an absolute pleasure to edit the end result on my new machine. Rather than running at a snail's pace (a bit like me today) Lightroom now whizzes by at great speed and it takes a mere two second to open each photo to full resolution rather than 30-40 seconds - hurrah! As for today's theme, I took the classic approach, shooting the most natural thing to drink in order to quench one's TI.

Thanks to Petrus [] for setting today??s theme. The other interpretations of this week??s theme can be found here [].

The ??Tuesday Inspiration? began in 2009 when Stéfan [] and I started setting each other a photographic challenge on a? Tuesday. Very soon afterwards, we decided to open this up to other PB members, followed by the idea that we should not reveal what the subject is, so that other members could compare how different members view a single theme. The Tuesday Inspiration is not a contest or a challenge, but a group of people all agreeing to post their interpretation of a single theme on Tuesdays. Each week, one of the contributors sets the theme. There are now over 40 members contributing to the TI. We have only two ??rules?: don??t include the subject in the TI title or tags and please comply with standard PB guidelines on courtesy, etc. If you would like to take part, please send me a message via this blog.
