Mid Week Blues: Beauty Is In The Eye Of The Beholder

I was parked in a lot adjacent to a huge blue factory and I immediately thought of MID WEEK BLUES.

As I looked around I first decided the scene was ugly and not worth shooting but the more I looked the more I saw.

The sun was very warm ...



Bare tree limbs are beautiful and touching. I love how they reach toward the sky ...




I think this one little weedy thingie is sweet and pretty, and she posed for me ...



I arrived at this spot frustrated by traffic and anxious about an appointment. Stopping for a moment to truly see what was around me turned my mood around. That is the gift of photography.

But it takes a good eye to see the beauty others would miss. I do like your little weedy thing too. Thanks for thinking of Midweek Blues!

The sun gives life to the bare branches.
But it takes something inside of you to discover it.
Thank you for this post.

Your last shot really does it for me! Nice that you can stop and refocus to tune all of life's crazy things out!

Its true, a moment to breathe and take in one's surroundings AND have a camera at hand makes many a moment better xo

Beauty is everywhere, but you need the eye of a photographer to see it!
