I was looking for a snarky fun image to upload to my facebook profile. I did a quick google image search for Creative Commons things I could use and was struck by all the really good and inspiring photos coming from sites like iStockPhoto.
Since I couldn’t find a ‘boring’ picture of ‘boring’, I was inspired to make a fake image. What’s more uninspiring than a plain grey image?
I even faked the watermark.
But then, like most things swirling in my brain I thought, “Why not?”
So I went over to Tumblr and started… http://uninspiredphotostock.tumblr.com/
All images are free now. You can even submit your own images! Once it get’s really popular I’ll start charging for it, and then setup a members only forum, and start charging for that too! Heck I might even make a free downloadable .pdf that you have to fill out a form to get. That form will also get you on my email newsletter list, selling you even more crap. This is going to be really big!
Which my friend Carole didn’t believe so she said…
So Carole, here’s your post.
Now I’m off to start taking more uninspiring, plain and boring photos. I’m going to be rich!
Oh, and that keyboard shot? That’s the actual keyboard I used to create all of this! Isn’t that inspiring? #not
Go ahead, it’s ok… Be Uninspired!
