April Blogging Challenge - 2




Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder is something I have always heard. But very recently I experienced it more closely.

Since the time I have started photography I have become more observant in terms of things that happen around me. So you would find me walking down the road and then all of a sudden I would be staring at the sky in all amazement with a bewildered look on my face, much to the passersby irritation.

There I was standing looking at perhaps a beautiful cloud formation, or the colour of the sky which had changed all of a sudden or maybe a flock of birds flying together in various shapes and on the other hand there was this crowd busy looking at me trying to gauge the extent of my madness.

Its truly said beauty lies in the eye of the beholder!!

Added later - > P.S: As suggested by one of my lovely blogging friends I am sharing the picture I clicked when this thought came to my mind.

  1. Well said, our different perspectives, experiences, situations, thoughts at that moment, make us look differently at things!
    And I have seen we appreciate and start seeing beauty all around us when we have this camera in our hands :D

  3. It is true that once you start learning photography (or painting etc), you do start looking at perspective and composition and ordinary things look unique!

    1. I agree Sharmila, photography has definitely improved the way I look at things around me.

      Though I don't claim to be a good photographer but yes I have become more sensitive towards all that happens around me.
