I've been fortunate to travel quite a bit in the last few years, but I always come back home to Dallas feeling uninspired. It becomes harder to pull my camera out of the bag when I don't have waves crashing against the shore like in Kauai, when I don't have waterfalls and forests around me like in Oregon, or interesting mountains and slot canyons like in Utah. I have found that the more and more I travel, the harder it becomes to be inspired at home.

However, there is one place in Dallas that does provide a constant source of inspiration for me, and that is White Rock Lake. Whether I'm riding my unicycle around the lake for fun, or simply walking around with my camera, it's one of my favorite places to be when I'm home.

This shot from sunset a couple nights ago, is a reminder to me, that I don't need to be anywhere but where I am to find beauty. Beauty is all around us, we just have to look for it.
