Beauty Surrounding Us!
Isn't it simply fascinating? We are completely surrounded by beauty and very few of us even notice!
I'm not just talking about an attractive man or woman, although they do tend to get noticed, I'm talking about nature... I'm talking about wildlife... I'm even talking about architecture!
I admit, I am one of those people that see very little around me, which is rather ironic, since I'm a photographer! You would imagine that photographers notice everything, but we're just like anyone else. We get so accustomed to our surroundings that unless we're specifically out to shoot something, we have tunnel vision!
While in Birmingham over the weekend I couldn't help but notice this beautiful church that stood just feet from where I was standing. The funny thing was, I had been in that very same spot hundreds of times, and never even noticed the church!
The stained glass was stunning, and the columns and carvings were spectacular! After taking several photo's of this beautiful structure I made myself a promise; one that I hopefully can keep! I promised myself that from now on I will pay more attention to the beauty that surrounds me on a daily basis!
Wouldn't it be great if we all did?
