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.

While others may pull weeds from their plot, I simply let them be, including the blur.

    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.
