Beautiful Decay

It’s easy to admire the obvious beauty of a freshly blooming rose, a cloudless blue sky or a panoramic view from a mountaintop. Yet I’ve found sometimes beauty is where I least expect to find it: hiding in the mire and the muck, buried within the forgotten locations, concealed by what is seemingly rotting and decrepit.

 

Sometimes it takes effort, sometimes it takes a second glance, but I’ve found if I persist, I’m usually happy I took the time…

 

This is just a glimpse of what I discovered while admiring the beauty amidst the decay…
