Broken Glass

Broken glass

Broken, that is the motto of the recent Weekly Photo Challenge. I’d say there couldn’t be a better motto, because it’s just a week ago when I noticed a broken window glass in the stairways of the apartment complex where my grandma and grandpa live.

I had my camera with me and shot a photo. Of course, we all dislike broken things, but broken glass can actually look pretty beautiful seen from the artistic perspective, but with that said I would now also call the landlord to fix it if I would live there.

Anyway, I somewhat like the geometry you see with broken glass. There is some beauty, don’t you think?

  1. I totally agree. Beauty can be seen in the most unexpected places – shattered ice, wood embers, a burned and blackened log, a rusting gate hinge, a knot in a piece of wood, algae in a pond, the detailing of tree bark, an elderly persons wrinkles, a smile (always beauty there) etc. etc. It is beauty to simply think that we are only limited by our powers of observation and imagination.

    1. Yes, you named some really good examples. If you take a look closer, you will find some very interesting textures and details or things going on. At some point I really want to buy me a macro lens, because this will open a complete new cosmos to discover… but you are right, you can find interesting things anywhere if you take a look closer, at the end we need our eyes to find the hidden beauty ๐Ÿ™‚ That does probably also explain why I like photography, I started to open my eyes to find things that are not so apparent at first, I really like that. ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Yes they do really cool stuff. I really wish I could fidle with all kind of photography equipment, but you are right, it’s so costly. Just take the big tele lenses above 600mm, you can also get a car for the same money ๐Ÿ˜€
