Everything is Beautiful

“I’m not that obsessed with making representations of ugliness. Everything I’ve seen is beautiful.”  ~ Otto Dix

I found this quote earlier, and I thought it expressed how I tend to look at life through the view finder!    I like the juxtaposition of old and new, life gently weaving through the jagged edges of history.

    1. Ha! The day I was taking these photos I was trying to sneak around NSH (on the off limits side), and throwing rocks at the windows probably would have attracted too much attention. 🙂 And you know? There wasn’t an unbroken window in that section!

  1. Something which I thought of after reading your statement of tending to look at life through the view finder . . .

    I saw a documentary a while back about the American photographer Annie Leibovitz. I can’t remember the exact wording, but in it she says that as a child their family travelled a lot, and that she saw the world in the “frame” provided by the car window. That that was when she got a sense for what would make a good photo.

    1. I’ll have to look for that documentary. I remember something similar from my childhood. My mom and dad took us on a lot of road trips in the summers, and I spent many hours looking at landscapes through the windows.
