Amazing response to my shout out for images inspired by the word SPONTANEOUS! Thank you so much everyone!

Spontaneity is a huge part of photography. It's in what we shoot and in the way we shoot and it gives huge power to an image. I have some wonderful pictures to show you that people have made in and of spontaneity & they all pack a punch, and sometimes that punch is wrapped in cotton wool and delivered in the softest focus imaginable.

Have a look at this brilliance, and then unleash yourself on the rest of your day, and don't forget to take a camera with you!
