Flawed Beauty

When you look at me,                                                                                                                                               

Do you see me, or what you want to see?

Look at my imperfections, as obvious as can be

They are still beautiful, for all the world to see.

 

 

Hi everyone...I'll be leaving for Iowa tommorrow. I hope I have fun. Will be back on sunday evening. I hear there are interesting and fun places in Iowa, I do hope I get to see them.

By the time you come back, Ada, you will know more about Iowa than I do. smile Have a great weekend. And thanks for the reminder that even in our weakness (imperfection) we are strong.
Ada Emihe: Most certainly Ginnie. I didn't know you originally live in atlanta...I love atlanta.
I'm beginning to come here for the poems as well your nice shots, you'll have to keep it up now.
Ada Emihe: I will try my good Sir..I am glad you enjoy whatever it is I am doing Sesan.

Nicely done Ada. Could perhaps have been better sharper rather than the soft focus as it would really have leapt off the screen then
Ada Emihe: I agree bill...Could have been sharper. Will get it right next time. Thank you Bill.

Interesting and fun places in Iowa? I was not aware that Iowa was inhabited ;-)

Imperfections are in the eye of the beholder.
Ada Emihe: lol...Kathryn no fair...I didn't know people were there either, that's why I am going to see life in Iowa. You are quite right, imperfections are in the eye of the beholder. Thank you Kathryn.
Nice words to go with this flower. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder it is said (all to often perhaps), Ada. Have you read John Berger, Ways of Seeing?
Ada Emihe: No I haven't. I would have to check that out now, sounds interesting. Thank you Chad.
lovely blogging

i think the image should be much sharper though
Ada Emihe: I agree with you...it came out that way, so I had to do what I could. But I do like the results.

Its a shame but I guess in most cases its what we want to see. I like this image and it fits so well with the verse, yours? I loove the little flowers within the flower. Have a nice weekend.
Ada Emihe: yeah..I made up the verse. Not that good, I know. :p. but I tried.

Have a nice trip. Hope Iowa is able to match the quality of your photography!
Ada Emihe: Thank you so much Harv..lol...I hear Iowa is beautiful.
Quite right Ada - we're all flawed in one way or another
Ada Emihe: True Mr Phillips....too true..
