What is inspiration?

INSPIRATION (ɪnspɪˈreɪʃ(ə)n)

  • The process of being mentally stimulated to do or feel something, especially to do something creative. (source: Google.co.uk)

What is inspiration? A frequently asked question. You see this word almost daily on Instagram or Pinterest. We see it so often that we got used to it before we even knew what it really means.

For me, inspiration is a process. It is about seeing or feeling something that literally blows your mind away and desires you to create something. This process can happen in a few seconds, but it can also take months. This process causes creativity in every way. Creativity means to create something. You see, without any kind of inspiration we wouldn’t be able to be creative.


I picked some of my own taken photographs which inspired me. Let’s see if they also inspire you.

Go out. Escape out of the ordinary. Be inspired.

xx, Nina
