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. I 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. 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?
