Subjective Beauty





This is one of my favorite pictures. As the petals of this carnation begin to whither, they form shapes that make them seem as if they were floating in water.

Sometimes, when I catch the flower perfectly still, the camera picks up on the way the flower carries its age in a resigned, yet calm and peaceful manner.

Most people wouldn’t look twice at a flower that is dying, but at times I like to take pictures of them to show that while beauty may be subjective, the appreciation of these flowers is also overlooked more times out of habit that rejection for the way they look.
