As an artist I can get stuck and need inspiration or help getting out of a pattern that isn’t going anywhere. Sometimes the easiest thing for me to do is to look at photography and let it take me somewhere. Since I’ve blogged for a very long time, on multiple sites, I’ve also come up short sometimes with stock photos I could use for header graphics for posts. Here is a list of stock photo places I go to for inspiration. Most are completely free to use as you wish; a few require attribution, but I think that is a very small price to pay for free usage of someone’s art. At the very end of the list I am also including the link to the Prelinger Archives which has 6600 free use films. Enjoy exploring & using them!
