Creativity has no boundaries

It takes around an hour and thirty minutes to get from my hometown, Madison to Florence, and the same was true while my dad and I drove back to campus for the start of the spring semester. When we left that day, my dad was somewhat concerned about the family car. Whenever he’d turn it on, it would make this obnoxious humming noise. Originally, he had planned to drop me off in Florence and then swiftly go to an auto repair shop when he was back in Madison. The car had other plans. 

About thirty minutes from our destination, in the middle of a rural Alabama town, the car began to die on us. We, fortunately, had enough battery to drive ourselves to a garage that was able to help us out. 

While we waited for the repairman to replace the car’s accelerator, I explored the surroundings, finding multiple photo opportunities. I wanted to grab my camera, but then realized I had it stocked away in one of my bags. I decided this would be a good opportunity to challenge myself into taking photos on my cell phone. 

People tend to be scared to start a creative hobby. Most of the time it is because they don’t think they have to have the best equipment for anything to look good. Though, one thing I’ve tried to grasp is that you don’t need fancy equipment to make a work of art. It only takes your mind and creativity to limit yourself to the knowledge that your ideas can be limitless.
