Finding Beauty in the Mundane

I enjoy looking at beautiful landscapes. They make for great photographs, especially sweeping panoramas – of mountains, fields, the sea.

Yet, as I spend more time developing my photography skills, I discover so much beauty in the mundane as well.

Playing with angles and light and texture
While others may pull weeds from their plot, I simply let them be, including the blur.

  1. These pictures are so beautiful Mom. I enjoyed to look at those pictures that you add. Thank you so much. God bless you and your work.

    1. Thanks so much Sr. Linh for visiting my blog and appreciating these photos. I enjoy taking photos, especially of Nature, as it’s the closest thing I can do next to painting…am a frustrated painter, so I’d rather take up my camera.

      Hope you’ll stop by here every now and then, and if you have some topics to suggest that I can write about, feel free as well. God bless you too, your studies, and community.
