How to search for BEAUTY in a Corrupt World

5 years ago

Sometimes in the reality of all that is going on in our lives and the world today, you just have to sit back..and take it all in. I do that whenever I feel like I have lost touch of how beautiful this world actually is, minus the corruption, violence and sadness that has invaded our daily lives. God’s creation is so simply amazing. I personally enjoy jumping into my car, turning on some great music and driving roads I drive all the time. I am a photographer so I take my camera and look for things I see everyday and look past the ordinary and search for the extraordinary  Then capture the image on my camera.  The pictures I am sharing, I took on a short drive all within a 10 mile radius of my home.

 

I have 4 Tips to help you search for beauty in this corrupt world ~

Search for the old and ordinary, get up close and personal. Then look at it from many angles.

Scan your surroundings looking for anything that can reflect the natural beauty of the scenery.

Instead of focusing on an object, look through that object at something else. Then focus on the beauty that lies beyond.
