Cell phones in the street – 01


Nederlands (link)

Sunday Street Day… It’s not hard to find people with cell phones in the streets these days… So I thought of making a selection of cell-phone shots this time… Here are a few of my latest ‘catches’ – made in the Streets of Amsterdam ( and 1 in Utrecht) – the Netherlands…

Do you have street photo’s of people with cell phones too? Leave a link in a comment to this blog post, and I’ll come over to have a look… 🙂

5 tips for true creative productivity


5 tips for true creative productivity

5 tips for true creative productivity

I was listening today to the interview with Samantha Bennett from theorganizedartist.com at the Creative Summit Series . Samantha shared some tips there that I think are really inspiring and encouraging for beginning as well as experienced artists!

I picked out 5 tips that spoke to me the most, and would like to share my notes with you:

  • 15 minutes a day!

    Procrastinating hurts! Commit to spending 15 minutes a day on the project that matters most to you, BEFORE you check your email.

  • Don’t wait for an A+, get a C

    Perfectionism is a dream killer. Get a C. Quit trying to get an A+ . Get a C : just show up and do the work.

  • Change a barrier into a bridge

    The thing you think is a barrier actually can be the bridge. Change that BUT to an AND. It’s fine to be the way you are, just surf that, use that. BUT can keep you stuck for ever. AND propels it into something that can work for you instead of against you.

  • Hold on to sunshine goals, get rid of shadow goals

    Real goals are sunshine goals, they are inspiring, accelerating. They make you want to start, make a plan. There is a little spark in them. Shadow goals weigh you down, may be tied to a ‘should’ , cause an ‘ugh’ feeling, may be somebody else’s dream for you. Somehow it’s got some failure in it before you even start with them.  You don’t have to hold on to shadow goals, you can set them down.

  • And Remember: The World Needs Your Art

Sounds interesting? Head over to the interview or to Sam Bennet’s website (links above)
