“Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind.” ~ Ashley Smith
But also notice your own beauty for it is most definitely right there in front of you but like me I suspect you are really good at missing it sometimes.
When I first posted this image back in 2016, The Beauty of Truth, I talked about why I had kept it hidden for a while and that at first I had even thought about deleting it but that over time I had come to see a real beauty to it. Since then that feeling has only continued and it has gone from an image that made me uncomfortable to one that I really love.
The original, with all the beautiful colours is just so perfect so I wasn’t at all sure that it was an image that was rip for another edit but I wanted to try and I am really glad I did. I don’t think this beats the original but I really like how this has turned out. It is reminiscent of a vintage postcard with the sepia tones and that flash of pink from the headscarf just helps me to pop a bit within the scene. Its not better than the original but I love that it worked and that it gives me another reason to show of this image that I have gone from being conflicted about to loving.
