Soul Food #135~ Beauty~
I was taken aback when I shot my Anemones from the back with a high exposure~
I had loved them from the front for their unparalleled beauty~
I never thought to observe them from behind..
That is one of the things I love about photography..
You discover beauty in different ways~
I must admit to finding the same with people.
Some of the prettiest..have become less..
Some of the more flamboyant..have become less.. and dulled..
Some of the more interesting w /stories..have become less because of their gossip content~
Sometimes through fault of their own..
But more often that not..the truly beautiful people..have brought a tear to my eye ..by their kindness..or humility..or generosity..or illness..or courage..or strength..or gentleness..
Even their Joie De Vivre!
I admit..to being biased when it comes to those I love:)
As they are beautiful..to me.. because I love them..
And I love them..because they are beautiful to me:)
Those are the ones that glimmer of beauty in my mind~The kind that stays~
I have sometimes had to look from behind..without the artifice of the front:)
It's easy actually..there is a genuine quality that shines about ..like a glow of true.
What is that saying? About.....Through thick and thin?
