It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light. Aristotle
Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy.
As a photographer some photos are well planned, or at least you have an idea of the possibility as you are shooting.Others, like this one, are a marvelous surprise!!
The potential was there but her true beauty didn’t come through in the photograph until the contrast increased. I wish I could say I have mad Photoshop skills, but all I do is move the dials until the image comes out of the raw materials, no fancy editing(yet). I sometimes wonder if it is anything like what masons and sculptors have described, as seeing what is in the rock; their job being to chisel away the extra stone to reveal the form that was hidden inside. I feel the same way about this photograph, I had to focus and find the image that was trying to come out naturally.
She is an unexpected pleasure.
Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking.
Age is a case of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it don’t matter.
I hope I will be taking photographs of butterflies for years to come; that I never grow so old or desensitized that their beauty holds no joy. That is what I wish.
Yet seeing the photos ,I finally realize,I never wanted to be your shadow, to be your other half. I always just wanted to be my whole self, nothing else.
