Photo Inspiration

Photo from Nepal

Friday’s I normally bring you something photography focused – but today’s photography has a slight twist.  I’ve thrown in a dash of inspiration to my photos from around the world.

For me, October is all about travel inspiration as I get ready to throw career break travel events across the country and hope to change the lives of hundreds of people by getting them to consider a career break and the value of travel.  However, I don’t do this alone – I’ve enlisted the help of people across the country to get this message out.  I have a wonderful team of hosts who are holding events in their cities, panelists who will speak at the events, and finally I’ve asked for help from my peers to help spread the word.

One person in particular, Jessie from Wandering Educators, took a bunch of my photos from my travels and overlaid some of her favorite quotes on them and is presenting them as inspiration each day.  It’s as if she gave a facelift to my photos!  So this Friday I thought I would share some of this inspiration here on Ottsworld.  I only ask that you share one of two of these photos/quotes in your world.  Pick your favorite then pin it, Facebook it, tweet it – or just leave a comment about why you like it!

    Great photos Sherry. I assume you won’t be able to attend the Austin workshop?

      Thanks Mike! It’s fun to see them with the quotes overlaid! You are right – I won’t be at the Austin event – I will be in NYC instead. However – you are in very good hands with Shelley and Keith – they are amazing travelers and people! I hope you are able to attend and check it out!

    Ooooo! Love these. Definitely going to do some pinning on Pinterest later today.

    My favorite is probably the Confucius quote. It’s simple, yet powerful. Sometimes we (including myself) forget to open our hearts. It’s a great reminder to approach different situations while being present and living fully.

    Looking forward to attending MPG in San Diego!

  3. Great photos and words. Thanks!

    The yurt matches Ralph Waldo Emerson’s quote so well.

    Love the Confucius quote, it applies not only to travel but just life in general. Just a few words can make you feel something powerful
