How to Incorporate Art In Your Everyday Life
Resolved: More Art!
You may have a New Year’s resolution to include more art into your life but you don’t know how. Or maybe you just resolved to put some more whims and whimsy into your humdrum existence but you aren’t clear how to get that done either.
Well, fortunately for you it’s not that hard. And what can be particularly cool is that you can get your whimsy on and get all artsy at the same time.
Chances are that you are a blogger or you play one on TV. Isn’t that how you got here? And one of the underlying reasons you want to get all artsy is you want some more art for your blog. Not only can you attract more eyeballs with more art but art can inspire you to write more stores. For instance, if I say consider the city at night; surely that creates any number of panoramas in your mind. If it doesn’t that’s okay too because I know where you can get some panoramas. Try Foter.com.
Bridge At Night
Ordinarily I would go for the nightly cityscape of some densely populated metropolitan area but the lights on this bridge caught my eye so I went with it. The main thing you need to do use Foter photos is the main things free photo sites always want you to do which is to tell where you got the picture from.
A good old standby for free art is of course wikimedig.org. Be sure to attribute. I have included here a more tradition midnight cityscape. Who says there is no beauty in technology?
On Flickr.com you will want enter the Commons or to make sure that you choose the menu setting that shows you only pictures in the Creative Commons to get photos that you may use, with attribution, in your work.
Another place which you should go to get photos of cities at night is a government website. Your tax dollars at work! You might as well get some use out of your tax money. Not everything the federal government buys is a $400 gold plated toilet seat. Sometimes they do useful stuff!
