Ugly Yet Beautiful (On the dreaded pathway)

There's beauty in everything....Even weeds can bloom like flowers. The Birds of the air see it; why can't we?????

"This world is full of beauty,
and such a pleasant place would be,
if we did but love it,
and its wonders they could see."

It's a modern day Noah's ark, and the sparrows are walking along the neon lit entrance two by two......

There is beauty in everything that Mother nature has to offer, I have spent my entire life with this philosophy and outlook. We simply need to open our eyes smile

Gorgeous image, Ada
Ada Emihe: Thank so much Floog...we do need to be positive.
Even Sparrows are beautiful!
Ada Emihe: Sparrows are beautiful Chris, but I can't figure out why they do not like me.

Altogether sunnier.
Ada Emihe: Thank you so much Ian....
A weed is only a flower growing where we don't want it to! Lovely picture Ada
Ada Emihe: Thank you so much Bill....A weed is what it is..lol..an INTRUDER!
You have given this a magical appearance, Ada, and the poetry is beautiful. I feel as if I'm on drugs but then, never having taken any, I would not know what it's like.

ps Unless it's like being bloto on booze.
Ada Emihe: Yep I love the poetry too..it's by Dick Richardson. He has a lovely collection of poems. Lol...bloto or booze! Which is it Chad? I'm sure you aren't on anything lol...I HAVE HYPNOTIZED YOU WITH MY PICTURE! YOU WILL DO AS I SAY CHAD DOVETON! SEND ME YOUR CAMERA!!!!!

I love the dreamy feeling this has (wish I knew how to do that!) I love the softness. The birds are so cute there on the path, they look like they are wondering what to enjoy next!
Beautiful color too!
Ada Emihe: Suri I have seen your pictures..can't even compare this one to urs..lol.. thank you.

This feels like a mystical, ethereal taste of heaven, Ada.
Ada Emihe: Thank you so much Ginnie...great description. I am going to use that to title a picture and dedicate it to you..lol

I allways wondered who decided which plants are weeds and which are not, if it had been my job there probably wouldn't have been very many weeds! this is lovely Ada and well worthy of all the praise its received sofar, I too like the processing and am a little curious as to what you did to this smile
Ada Emihe: lol...well I didn't do much..My lens did more of the aperture effect. I used the RGB curve, then I dodged and burned parts of the picture. I dodged the pathway..and selectively burned the weeds. tweeked it a bit really and liked what I saw...lol

lovely thoughts and shot Ada, great stuff indeedsmile
Ada Emihe: You are always welcome Tim...Thank you a whole lot. I promise I wont mistake you for Richard ever again..
Liking this a lot, it's an unusual composition
Ada Emihe: Thank you Nigel...really unusual. Is that go or bad?
Neither good or bad, just an observation. It's almost two pictures, the path is unusually bright and you could say it distracts from the flowers, but somehow it doesn't harmsmile
Ada Emihe: lol...appreciate your honesty Nigel..
