Hidden Beauty

Red Desert Flower Hiding in the Trees

Red Desert Flower Hiding in the Trees

There is beauty in many things in this world. Sometimes though you have to look more closely to see it and most of us when it comes to nature will walk right past it without even a glance. On a recent trip to Springs Preserve in Las Vegas with family and friends there was plenty of beautiful desert blooming flowers all around on the pathways and then there were some not on the pathways that you had to look a little deeper to see. That’s what this image is for me. A look at beauty not so easily found as this magnificent red desert flower peeks through the greenery of the trees.

As I go through life not only do I see many amazing and beautiful flowers, landscapes, seascapes, forest and wildlife, but I also notice the beauty in people. Making someone smile sometimes is all it takes to make the eyes sparkle, there own smile to grow into a more lively and vividly expressive face, but it also brings out the heart within the person. Take the time to say hello or just smile at someone and see how a sad or depressed expression can turn into a face of thankfulness that you even noticed to look or speak to him or her.

Life is full of challenges for all of us and some days we just don’t feel appreciated, accepted, wanted or loved. This one act will do more good for a person than you even realize. There have been countless stories told of people that thought no one noticed them or cared and they were only moments from eliminating themselves from this world. Learn to look outward at those around you and not so much as your phone and own problems. I know for myself when I focus on others it helps me to feel better because I took the time to give hope, share, be kind or even smile and that in itself helps me when I am feeling low.

Give it a try sometime and see how many people you can make smile. Spreading love to others should never be a chore but a pleasurable experience for all.

Beauty in Nature

I am constantly amazed at the beauty in nature all around me. It does not matter if I’m in the desert, in a forest, or at the ocean. The saying, stop and smell the roses, comes to mind as we walk by such beautiful things every single day and most of us don’t even notice them. Life would be less stressful for all of us if we did.

There is a pair of ground owls a few streets from my home that live in some tunnels they created on a property that’s been for sale for some time. When it is getting close to sunset I will take a drive down that street and just look at them. This year I got to see a third ground owl with the other two so a baby was added to the family. I’ve yet to be able to get what I consider a good photograph of them, as I don’t like to stop to long so that they don’t become nervous of my presence.

It’s also known that the first thing the owls will go for is your eyes if they feel threatened and I personally would like to keep my vision so I can enjoy the beauty they add to our world. I hope you will take time to add some beauty to your life. It’s not about just going through each day, stuck in your routines and trying to juggle all of life. It’s also about enjoying that which is around you all the time, each season, a flower, an animal, clouds, rainbows and even sunsets.

Share in the beauty around you and I hope you have a blessed day!

Welcome to Purrfect Images

Welcome to my site Purrfect Images. As you can see I’m still fixing the place up and getting my images loaded so they can be seen.

I hope with my images that you will feel inspired, at peace, joy and happiness, and overall just calm and relaxed when looking at them. I enjoy taking pictures of things that make me smile or give me a sense of calm and relaxation. There is far to much stress in our lives and I like to look at things that seem to take that stress away as much as possible.

My family and friends think my images are pretty good and that I should share them with others. With there support and belief I’m doing just that. I hope you will join my family and share in my images as well in the future.

God Bless and Enjoy!
