Another image from my Cordoba 'wonderings'... with the incredible 'K8' showing that the way to a photographer's heart is to find the perfect moment to blur through the image (again and again and.... I'm choosy about my blurs....:-)
I found this scene in the old Jewish quarter of Cordoba and was taken with the irony and humility of the writing; it's as though the grafitti artist just couldn't squeeze out anything more creative that day. A grafitti artist's block, maybe...?
And, maybe, as no-one seems to to be in a rush to remove it, perhaps there is some wider empathy to be found here....?
Yesterday, I found myself mentoring a young musician. We were talking about the discipline that creativity requires; that even on the bad days, you need to turn up and do the work - and sometimes the creative magic shows up too... Check out Elizabeth Gilbert's TED talk from way back on LWOE.
The risk of a disciplined approach to creativity is that you might invest a lot of time before the magic shows up.
But if you can be clear and authentic about telling that story then you might find you can still touch people.
