Todays photography lesson was about how to spark our creativity. One thing that was suggested was to write a list of things we enjoy taking pictures of. I actually had a list of things that inspire me to take out my camera already. These are things on my list:
HORSES - my favorite subject, therefor I devided it into different parts: eyes, hooves, mane, tail, portrait, pasture pictures, training pictures, horse/rider and pictures taken from the back of a horse. I'm most passionated about taking pictures of their eyes. They tell me so many stories. http://discoveringranchlife.blogspot.com/2012/11/the-eye-of-horse.html
Water - Sea, Ocean, River, Creek, Pond, Lake
Baking - Dough, Bread, Cookies, Cakes
I'm an outdoor person and it's my goal to try at least one new hiking/riding trail every week. It serves many purposes: inspiration for my photography, exercise (for me, my dogs and horses) and most of all it gives me peace of mind.
I really think it's a great idea to have a written list of inspirational things for your photography. I will add Coffee to my list, as in the example :) It's been a grey, rainy day today and taking pictures inside was very tempting. However, as I'm in the process of taking my coffee pictures inside, the sky outside my window goes on fire. I had to take a break and take some pictures of the sky too. Therefor I did two themes today: one "coffee theme" and one "sky theme".
Here's the pictures I took today:

Sky On Fire!
