A Beautiful Thing Is Never Perfect

NO WORRIES if the flawless and faultless are rare in this world. According to an Egyptian proverb, "A beautiful thing is never perfect."

The idea of perfection charms us but, honestly, aren't our shortcomings motivating and life's blots and blemishes sometimes quite interesting? Here are a few photos of the "imperfects" I came across recently.

  6. Your eyes for finding a beauty in imperfection looks perfect, Penelope. There is air of perishability in this series of photos with the palette of browns, blacks, grays, earthly greens, and other weathered colors.
