Find the Hidden Beauty


“Hidden Beauty” © R.L. Herron

Beauty is Everywhere
I know that’s a cliche, but it’s true. Just like this shot of red flowers (don’t ask me what they are, I haven’t got a clue). They were a solitary spot of vibrant color in a field of weeds.

I had to lie flat on the ground to get this perspective and soiled a very good shirt. I used a large aperture and fast shutter speed to throw the background out of focus, so the flowers dominate the picture. I didn’t want to see everything, just the pretty part.

I think that’s an attitude that would serve most of us well in these uncertain times.

As GM, and the other domestic automakers, struggle to reinvent themselves in the wake of the disaster created by Wall Street, and the rest of us try to make sense of the recession caused by those under-regulated, greedy fools, it makes sense to stop and look around us.

There is still a lot in the world to be happy about. Taking care of family and friends in need, because we care. Taking care of strangers, for the same reason. Looking for the good in the world, and focusing on it.

Like those red flowers, it’s always there. We just have to find it.

    You have truly found a hidden beauty that is most certainly all around but sometimes-the outer eye does not see what the heart can feel…Gorgeous!

    Poppies Ron. My favourites! And they may be a good omen for your car industry problems. Because the one thing you can rely on with poppies is that they ALWAYS come back! Lovely picture…
