Cee’s Black & White Challenge: What is Beautiful to You

Cee’s Black & White Challenge: What is Beautiful to You

Cee’s topic makes me think. What is beautiful to me, really?

My first reaction was: “Gee, I don’t know.”

I thought… maybe by looking through some photos, I would figure it out. But after 20, I was still not sure.

Then I saw this photo. I remember how I must take a picture of it before moving forward.

Everything is beautiful in its own way.

Maybe… everything is beautiful to me…

    Beautiful photo- and I love love love “maybe…everything is beautiful to me…” I am going to try to “see” this way today. 🙂

      Thanks, Sue. I think another reason that everything is beautiful to me is that I am alive 😉 This afternoon, I saw a beautiful blue sky while driving to the post office to mail a package to my daughter. I said to myself, how lucky I was that I had a chance seeing the blue sky, trees, the traffic light against the blue sky… I felt good. 😉 Helen

    Hi Helen, I know this was a hard topic, at least it was for me. Because I think we think alike. It all depends on my mood or time of day, or what I look at….I think you get the idea.
    Your leaf is beautiful, the texture really comes out in black and white.

      Hello, Cee. You really understand how I feel! It all depends on my mood or time of day… Exactly! But I try hard to keep myself in a good mood. Not always successful, but I try very hard. Ha. Helen

    Lace! This looks like lace to me. And these are beautiful, Helen!


  6. If it is, then you’re lucky! But, this is beautiful, so… 😉


  7. Those lace-like leaves are indeed beautiful – as is the photo having captured the delicate patterns.


  8. Helen, stunning photo in black and white! It’s beautiful to me too 🙂

    Fabulous capture! Even the smallest things in nature can be so beautiful – we can find new and beautiful things around us every day 🙂
