I need more balloons…
Y’know… it was a couple of weeks before I realised this page was empty aside from my short Gravatar bio (which has now disappeared since I’ve filled this page… huh). See, that’s how clueless I am when it comes to blogging, even though it’s a fabulous channel to chronicle my adventures.
Anyway, a little about me. Who am I? I’m a pilgrim of beauty. What is that you may ask? A marketing stint? A publicity angle? A story pitch? Well if they are any of those I guess it’s a bonus, but what it means is that I’m constantly on the hunt for the beautiful. Not your… everyday Instagram selfies and highly saturated images of the bold and highly-defined, but the ones that often go unnoticed, for you see the truly beautiful never calls attention to itself, which makes it incredibly difficult to capture in this age where everyone yearns for attention, but at the same time, an exhilarating challenge.
Need an example? Here’s one:
This was featured in one of my earliest post, and I still fall in love with it every time I look at it. A shell collector at work. It might not be everyone’s favourite, but it is mine. I guess it’s obvious that photography will play a large part here, but I also hope to use this blog as an avenue to improve my own writing as I traverse this world, unlocking its secrets with awe as a pilgrim of beauty.
Will you join me in my travels? Engage my thoughts with yours? Watch with wonderment at what this world has to offer? Decipher this labyrinth called life? Everything is beautiful, we simply need to learn how to look at them.
… okay except for disasters, destruction, malice, gory movies, bird crap on my car’s windscreen, I mean, honey, these look TERRIBLE regardless of perspective.
Well, I hope you enjoy your stay here! And if you ever happen to be in the same place as I am, ring me up! I’m always up for coffee and cake. =)
