Confucius said, “Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.”
What a lovely quote.
I used that quote on a photograph of a crab. Cute. That image even won first place recently in a Fine Art America contest.
In the description of the image I asked the following questions:
Everything has beauty. Does it? What is it about this crab that has beauty?
What about life around us? How often do we really see the beauty in everything?
I wrote that description and asked those questions as an inspiration to see more beauty in the everyday world around us. Noble intent.
But, really – does everything have beauty?
Is beauty, like art, in the eye of the beholder?
What about garbage? Does it have beauty?
What about clutter? Does it have beauty?
What about war? Does it have beauty?
Everything has beauty…
