Beauty is everywhere … if you are looking for it.

The light has been interesting today, overcast yet bright and with lots of contrast.  I took the two pictures below during a stroll around the garden after lunch earlier today.

Since becoming interested in photography again over the past number of years I have gradually developed the habit of looking for photo opportunities everywhere.  I notice all sorts of things that previously I would hardly have paid attention to, such as the way the clouds are forming over the field across the road, the warmth of the light early in the morning and again just before sunset , the look on a child’s face when they are given an ice cream, (not to mention the supposedly more mundane things such as flowers, insects, birds and even plain and simple leaves).

.

All these things and more have taken on a new and profound fascination – beauty is everywhere if you are looking for it.
