I have long realised that there are some of us who are born artistic and some of us who are sadly not. If the artistic ones were to play a musical instrument, you could tell they are talented. If they go into photography, you can be sure their talent can be seen in the photos that they take. Many things in my life have convinced me that I am not one of these artists and I'm quite accepting of that. Not everyone is an artist.
An artist is one who has an eye for beauty. I just saw this pic which was taken by Jacques Marie and immediately, I was stunned by its beauty. I mean just look at it. In the pic, you can see me getting myself photographed but as usual, I chose the wrong angle. That's because I have no eye for beauty. I just wanted my pic to be taken with the cows and I forgot the mountains in front of me.
I have decided that for this year's NEWT 2017, I will look out for a good scenery before I take pics. I must be alert for beautiful photo opportunities. People who are just like me, ie those who lack artistic talent can still take good pics but we have to consciously look out for the beauty around us. Frequently, because the mountains are so beautiful, we become so intoxicated by the surrounding beauty that we forget that some angles are more beautiful than others.
