Unexpected beauty

You can walk past something or someone repeatedly and not take notice or interest.  Then, because of something different about the SURROUNDINGS, the something or someone looks like a new creation.  This is just another field, most of the time.  This morning, though, it was a little different.

Just another leaf, albeit its prominence on our flag.  A touch of frost, and voilà, a different presentation.

Please understand, I am in no way trying to showcase my photography skills.  I have none.  I see, I like, I click, I toss out a lot of them.  It’s the little voice that says ‘ya know, there’s meaning here’.  Yes, I tend to philosophize.  As I blog, it teaches me to keep my eyes open for and in the moment.  By the way, this whole process works on those people who are invisible to us most of the time.  Cheers.

  1. I really enjoyed these pictures. Reminds me to stop and be where I am, to see divine appointments as they surface, appreciate what I have here-and-now. A slight change in surroundings, a beautiful shift in perspective – towards keeping our eyes open with gratitude and wonder.

  2. Enjoyed your “philosophy-ing” 🙂 And I agree, sometimes we look at things a hundred times and then all of a sudden there’s something there we hadn’t seen before. There is so much beauty all around us if we stop to look. Beautiful photos.
