Finding "pretty" where you least expect it

The weather was gorgeous yesterday, sunny and breezy and perfect for finding a beautiful place to take photos. Unfortunately, October always kicks my allergies into high gear, so I couldn't even sit outside on my own patio.

Instead, I ran errands, but I took the camera with me, just in case.

I liked the shadows and the pronounced woodgrain on this fence behind the Shell station where I stopped for gas:



And a couple miles down the road I noticed for the first time that there are pretty little trees in the Walmart parking lot:



That's all I got in the way of photographs, but by adding gasoline and groceries to the mix,  I was satisfied.

  1. Just goes to show you, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I like finding beauty in things most people overlook.

  2. Janet, I think those of us who look for beauty find it, and those who look for ugly find plenty of that. I see ugly sometimes, too, but I try not to hold those images in my head.
