One thing I’ve loved about this blog is that I’ve really expanded my circle of friends. I have made contact with so many beautiful people with some amazing stories. One woman shared with me a philosophy about finding beauty in all we do and see. I have spent a lot of time thinking about that, and, I think anyone who loves photography probably shares that view to a certain extent. We all find our own beauty and we all see beauty differently. I’m really happy that I found her blog, because my version of beautiful has sometimes been a little different than other peoples’ versions. Until I found Kenna and her beautiful blog, I thought I was, well, you know, kind of weird….
If’d you’d like to check out Kenna’s blog and her lovely philosophy, you can find it here
So, here’s my attempt to share something that I find beautiful, but others do not.
I have a neighbor who has a bunch of old farm equipment sitting around his place. Some people view his farm as an eyesore.
I love old farm equipment, though and find it just beautiful. What do I see in it that’s beautiful? The fact that it had a function once. People used it to wrangle food out of the ground here in the Rockies where the land, although spectacularly, dramatically “beautiful”, can be a difficult place to try and provide food for a family. There is a reason it’s called the “Rocky” Mountains. The soil is well, rocky, and inhospitable. The growing season is about 20 minutes long. These tools more than likely fed someone’s baby corn mush on a cold winter night…
I took some shots so you can make up your own mind…
So, the question is, what do you find beautiful that other people may not appreciate?
