A beautiful Thing

It's a beautiful thing, not just to see the world around us, but to know what's behind it and to experience the love of our maker in our everyday lives.

A great photographer told me how rare it is to see a black/ white flower photograph like this one, for where is a flower's beauty if not in its color? Can the intricacies alone not be marvelous?  
I say the beauty to be found is in the way we see it, as with life.  We find beauty sometimes in the most unlikely of places.

I'm not sure where it began.  Art has been a part of my childhood much like crayons and glue.  But now I've outgrown the play-dough and markers, and photography instead has filled their place.  Art has taken different forms in my life thus far, from painting and sculpting to computer and graphic design.  However none of these appealed to me as highly as photography.  
Maybe it's because I am capturing reality, unfettered and unedited through the camera's lens.  It trains my eye to see beauty in everything, breaking down my negativity and skepticism. Maybe it's because rather than sitting behind a computer screen or paint canvas, the world is my unending canvas and people my focus.  Whatever the case, and whatever the future holds, unless my God commands me otherwise, I'll keep carrying my camera at my side.
