Making Beauty

How to make beauty? If I wanted to sound poetic, I’d say that beauty is everywhere and in everything. Hey, it’s true. But not everyone can see it. Even harder is how to capture that fleeting beauty.

So here’s lesson #1 in ‘making’ beauty: hiding it.

It’s the truth …and it’s a paradox.

In this case, both the hidden and the hider are both beautiful. I guess it just makes the photo all the more aesthetically successful.

The Swan is an example of an already beautiful subject. But if you just partially hide its face, it immediately becomes more mysterious and attractive.
