The Morning Rush

I was watching TV one evening and a documentary dealing with city something is on, and I feel drawn to the images rushing by.  So I hit pause on the PVR (best invention having to do with TV so far), run down grab my camera, hit rewind, then start, and begin snapping pics.  After sifting through about twenty photos, which were somewhat blurry, I crop this and think bingo.  It kind of forced me to be looser,  nowhere near what I was hoping for, but a reasonably good start and a mindset to build on.  Is it okay to paint from photos taken from movies/TV I wonder?  I get so much inspiration from video and would like to do more.
