.V Inspiring

Fellow Aussie Vanessa Macphail has a knack for creating eye candy. This graphic designer curates stunning image combinations delicious enough to eat. Or in her words ".love". I think this post is perfect. When I see an image I love, it's a feeling, not a conscious thought. Subconsciously you just 'feel' it - simultaneously devouring it with your eyes and your mind. I think it's this feeling of a 'fleeting whole fulfilment' when we first view a fresh or favourite image that completely satisfies our aesthetic and momentarily satisfies our search for inspiration that also feeds our appetite to search and discover again. If you're ever running low on inspiration 'flow', head over to .v - she gets it right every time.
