Perfection…

is it all it’s cracked up to be?

To the artist there is never anything ugly in nature.

Auguste Rodin

We hear a lot about perfection; what it is and how to achieve it.

For me though, I think that the imperfect often warrants a closer look and when it comes to photography I’ll take imperfection any day!

There is a certain beauty that comes with symmetry and I think that in many ways we’re programmed to prefer this.

During the flurry of our first big snowstorm of the season I was thrilled to find this tiny snowflake, not at all perfect and yet so utterly perfect!

This is the time of year when I start to think about my goals for the coming year and I have some big ones for next year.

For the next few weeks though my goal is to stay present and not get overwhelmed by the expectations of the season.

Look for beautiful moments, be kind to one another, and celebrate the little things.

  1. Your advice for coping with the season is perfect (that is all the “perfect” we need!). One day I hope to see the little snowflakes that you do, as imperfect as I hope they will be.

  2. If perfection were an image, this shot of yours is pretty darn close. I admire all of your photography, but this one bursts with beauty and meaning.
