#Summer can be a source of #inspiration.

Summer can be a source of inspiration. 

So, there you are at the airport or train station etc or in the car travelling to your destination. 
Source of inspiration, really?
For example you have all those posters and ads around you. 
Well, look at them!
Ok, don't get distracted if you are driving please. 
Look at the composition, the choices of colours, the shapes, the message, does it come across well? 
Is it good or bad design? 
Would it win a prize? 
Maybe not. But maybe yes.
But it's worth thinking about why it is or isn't a good composition. 
That will help you in the future to criticise your own work. 
Sometimes we are just too close to our work to be objective. Ask others what they think of your work. You are not fishing for compliments. You are looking for genuine advice. If they make suggestions, listen to them. They might just have sound advice or a good idea. 
After all you don't have to agree or go along with what they say. 
But as you wait for your train, plane or are sitting in a rest stop, take a look around. 
You might be surprised by what you see. 
Those posters and ads were put there to grab your attention. 
So get inspired. 
And come back with fresh ideas.
