Cool looking Bracket fungi..
I have been thinking about inspiration /originality for some time lately. Fashion mavens will know the stellar job that @diet_prada and its Indian counterpart, @dietsabya are doing in bringing attention to startling and outrageous cases of ‘inspired’ (read: copied) editorials or designs or concepts. And I too recently chanced upon inspired instances of various examples of art with no credit attributed. I started to wonder about my writing voice and the organic/direct influences that contribute and form the bedrock of my work. Years ago, when I was studying creative writing, I remember having to write an essay about the cultivation of one’s own writing voice. I was 20 years old and still grasping with the idea of writing readable short fiction - and the notion of possessing my own voice was nothing short of an arrogant projection of my abilities. But the truth was that if I didn’t have or develop my own voice, how could I write something that was wholly me? I remember reading Chitra Bannerjee Divanaruni’s books at the time and launching into writing a story where I tried to imitate her florid prose (apologies to CBD fans!). But it didn’t work as didn’t many of the other stories I wrote in other authors’ voices. Over the years, even though I don’t think much of it at times, I feel I have gotten a voice that I can call my own - and it is the stories written in that which resonate with my readers. And yet I must be careful at times to recognise where inspiration and admiration end and my presence begins, a presence which is unadulteratedly and hopefully recognisably me. Here, an unrelated photo of a yellowing ficus tree leaf to show that nature is the ultimate ink pot of inspiration to dip into and write and draw our stories: no leaf decays identically, no sunset is the same, and each flower blooms just a little differently from the rest of its sisters.
Beauty in colors, from all natural to dyed hues 🌿👣☺️

Autumn leaves🍁 ...🎶 I love the colour tones of this leaf here.
Found these Solomon’s seal caterpillars, they’ve completely stripped the Solomon seal plant. But it doesn’t damage the plant as it has already flowered. They will grow into sawflys once they’ve eaten and become cocoons. . . #solomonseal #caterpillars #plantlife #wildlifephotography #britishwildlife #garden #sawfly #sawflylarvae #leafgram #england #nature #naturephotography #lovenature #plantsnap #green #30dayswild

Através da folha verde o recorte de um coração pulsante.
Digital da natureza.
