See Beautiful - Shadows and Sunbeams


I see beautiful every single time I see sunlight painting bushes and walls and creating Shadows.


I saw beautiful  as I stood staring at the sunbeams painting this scene of a  resident picking dead buds off the flowers in the courtyard.

Laughter is the sunbeams of the soul... Thomas Mann

I especially love that second photo. Reminds me of my dad. He would have done that. :-) Since I got my camera, I now always notice light and shadows.

My first visit to your blog - truly enjoyed the idea of noticing the shadows. Second photo is very moving - I wonder if he had a garden to care for in his younger days.

Seeing 'beautiful' and 'laughter', are wise. Wise for your own health and life...

The 2nd shot just touched my soul. I'm sure that is the best thing happening for that man...to get up everyday and check the flowers. Sweet! Great picture.

Love photo #1 also.

This post is not only beauty of the eye, but beauty of the HEART! I love the man tending the flowers!!! AND this gorgeous yellow fence! How soon can you dig it up, knock it apart, and ship it to me?? Now I want a yellow fence, like sunlight surrounding and protecting your yard.

My eyes miss shadows. Your's don't. Sometimes I wonder why I don't them more. They are so interesting.
