UK postbox in the early evening light

Do you ever struggle for inspiration? I do. This happens to me a lot. My photography goes in fits and starts. Then yesterday I had a letter to post. I put on my coat, picked up the letter, and just for the hello of it I grabbed my camera. Who knows, I may have run into a movie star along the way.

As the letter was posted I noticed that the street lights were illuminating the postbox and I decided to take a snap. I cranked up the ISO a little, opened the aperture as wide as it would go and took the image.

So a mundane everyday task became a new photograph and this blog post. I think the secret is to take your camera with you wherever you go. How do you overcome a lack of inspiration? How do you motivate yourself?
