gentle beauty

pure white camelia blossom 2015-03-14IMG_4193IMG_4193

The pure clear face of this camelia — its serene perfection with a backdrop of relative dark disorder was similarly captivating for me— its creamy petals, in regular geometric pattern signalling a gracious presence even amidst the chaos. Beholding this gentle beauty almost grants the kind of serenity it embodies.  And just as fleetingly, for the camelia blooms last only a very brief time before fading and falling.

Photo Notes

This is an iPhone photo, as it was one of those moments on a dog-walk when a sight cries out to be captured. I’ve added some layers of texture to  the background to emphasize the clarity of the blossom itself.
