Unless otherwise marked, images were taken at the Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens in Richmond, Virginia.
This week’s photo challenge is to share the world as we see it through our eyes.
As much as I love writing, my photography has improved tremendously and is a big draw to my blog. The saying goes that a picture is worth a 1,000 words and it’s true. Pictures show so much more than words can describe, something I wrote about recently when I saw the play, Hamlet.
So when I’m out with my camera (or even when I’m not!), how do I look at the world? What am I attracted to?
I love blue skies.
And white clouds, lots of white clouds. Especially when I can lay on the deck and make up the images I see floating by.
I like to look up and see the landscapes, to look far.
I also like to look close, to see the beauty in the details.
I like the sun, in whatever form I find it.
Although green and water also satisfy my soul.
I like the unusual. . .
. . . and the ordinary.
I can find beauty nearly everywhere I look, whether in a small space between office buildings in downtown or
. . . going out to my favorite places for photography.
There is beauty everywhere. All we need is to look for it.
Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy.

We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure.
There is no end to the adventures that we can have
if only we seek them with our eyes open.
~ Jawaharlal Nehru
The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious –
the fundamental emotion which stands
at the cradle of true art and true science.
