Where do you find beauty'? What makes something 'beautiful'?

  1. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder - so what do you think is beautiful? What characterizes something that you can classify as such?

    The blog I need help with is melodylowes.com.

  2. Whoops! Wrong link.
    This is my idea of beauty

  3. Nah, they won't work because of content. Sorry folks. :(

  4. Is first look to Nature for beauty. The beauty in Nature, is neutral because Man did not create it.

    When I began my personal blog, I had no idea that a good portion of it would include Nature. That was not my intent. It was on cycling. But of course, part of the experience of cycling is experiencing Nature on several different fronts...except for taste unless one plucks off wild fresh fruit somewhere.

  5. Yep, I'm with maidiebike - nature is beautiful. But also, colour. To me, colour is beauty. :) If I were ever to lose my ability to perceive colour, I think I'd go crazy.

  6. Colour is so fascinating. It has so many qualities. I love reading the 'names' of colours - some are so well-suited and inventive! And nature, too, holds endless beauty.

  7. There's a book: Colour: Natural History of the Palette which chronicles the author visiting worldwide natural sources of colour/pigment and does research. ie. red is from a particular beetle in South America, etc.

    Very interesting book.

    Thanks God that that link doesn't work. :)

  9. That sounds like a great coffe table book. Thanks maidiebike.

  10. I have a post about beauty on my blog! Take a look at it:

  11. That's nice Celine :-)

  12. Thank you very much! I'm new here and appreciate all the support! :D

  13. A very nice take from a 'youngster' :) I'm glad that you are deciding to set your own personal beauty standards. That, after all, is beautiful in itself!

  14. I think beauty is more to do with actions than appearance.

    Though having said that I think all animals are beautiful. (just look at my blog and you'll see beauty in through this blogger's eyes!)

    Nature, and music :)

  16. @hutchagoodlife - 'Beauty is as beauty does', eh? I think you have something there. But I'm with you on the animals!

  17. @dovesgold - How could I have forgotten about music! Nothing stirs the soul quite like music. I'm going to have to write about that one... thanks!

  18. Men showing love and affection for each other I think is so beautiful. Animals, music and thunder storms. All nature really. Even that which we perceive as cruel ( in nature) has a kind of beauty about it. Just watch a cat ( big or small) stalk it's prey, or the grace of a Great White shark as it leaps from the water to catch an unsuspecting seal or bird. Beautiful.

  19. Or watch me I'm beautiful too :)

  20. @jessielansdel I agree with the nature part - but not the stalking! I think it is terrible to see a creature in mortal fear trying to escape from a predator so much bigger and stronger than itself..horrible. I love my cats, but don't appreciate their knack for catching songbirds. Mice, they can have at.
