Not totally photo related, not just a journal. A bit of both.

Brian Eno's Oblique Strategies

If you are having some creative challenges, use Brian Eno's Oblique Strategies. This magic 8 ball like interface on Brian Eno's page to maybe jump start your toughts and perhaps take it in an unexpected direction. Not sure how many there are, but it could help a writer staring at a blank page in Word, a photographer stumped on the direction for a shoot, and might even be helpful for people who work at... jobs.

  "Look at the order in which you do things"

From Wikipedia: Brian Eno described his Roxy Music tenure as important to his career: "As a result of going into a subway station and meeting Andy [saxophonist Andy Mackay], I joined Roxy Music, and, as a result of that, I have a career in music. If I'd walked ten yards farther, on the platform, or missed that train, or been in the next carriage, I probably would have been an art teacher now".
