Rob sent me a link to Christopher S. Penn's post A Week With a View. I love the concept- the idea of looking into other people's perceptions of beauty. I am looking forward to following along and seeing what other people see.
I've decided to modify it a bit here, though. I am keenly aware of the fact that I don't appreciate the bounty of beauty that presents itself to me daily. I allow it to be overshadowed by stresses and worries and melancholia.
So, in effort to key into the beauty around me, my adaptation will involve posting a photo from my own Flickr photostream here.
So, it's about thankfulness and awareness and appreciation. I think I'll try to post a person and non-person each time.
Lucy covered in sand is summer to me. As an adult the idea of being covered in sand makes me squirmy and itchy- but look at the light in her smile.
Good enough to eat, right? So red and shiny and succulent.
Thanks, Chris, for the inspiration. Any photos I post will link through to my Flickr page.
