Weekly Photo Challenge: Color

6 Apr

Some hutong art, painted on the walls near Renmin University.

I simply love happening upon random beauty in a place that I’m so used to. You know how to just become so accustom to your surroundings where you live. You begin to mistake the “unusual” as “usual” and the “beautiful” as merely “plain”.

Sometimes I need to stop, take a deep breath and open my eyes.

My point?

Hooray for graffiti and people who can actually paint on a rough canvas.

    I love your line ” You begin to mistake the unusual as usual…..”. This sentiment can be applied to many episodes and passing scenes in our lives. You think life will always be the same…and suddenly one day…. what was usual is now very unusual…in fact darn scarce. Ah yes….even the usual can be unusual and very beautiful and dear.
