Beauty in Everyday Things



I think the beauty in everyday things comes alive when you take the time to look a little closer. Who would have thought that coals in a fireplace could contain such a variety of textures:




Some see a beat up pair of shoes...a runner feels the freedom, the fresh air, blood pumping, life:

    The sneakers, appropriate to see set aside for the bare feet of summer. Nice work

  3. I don't know how many times I have sat mesmerized by fires and the embers after the flames die down. I found myself staring at the photo the same way. Magical.

  5. Reminds me of when I was in scouts and we would sit for hours and watch the fire burn down and tell stories. The transformation from burning logs to dying embers is slow and mesmerizing.

    Thanks,
