When this assignment began, I wrote about the difficulty you might face trying to photograph what—and who—inspires you. But after curating this story, I’m beyond thrilled with how our community stepped up to the challenge. As you demonstrated with your photographs, inspiration can come from many different places. We can be inspired by places we travel to when we want to clear our minds. We can be inspired by the act of others, who try to do good and help people in need. We can also be inspired simply by having long conversations over coffee with a friend.
One of my favorite things during this assignment was reading the discussion board and your captions, about why and how the people and places you photographed inspire you. All Your Shot assignments require us to work together to tell a story.
