Not so perfect


Language is the most imperfect and expensive means yet discovered for communicating thought. - William James

Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves. - Carl Jung

  2. you hit the nail right on the head. I have learned so much about myself. I have freinds who have things i don't like, even though i like them as a friend. from looking at what drives me nuts about them, i have found myself guilty of some of the same qualities. I tend to let my mouth run away with me when talking. one takes to long to tell her stories, so do I, so i have monitored me. one grumps about everything, so do I so I am watching ME more.
    the photo is perfect even if the flower is a small little bit imperfect. looks like some bug had a meal.

  3. My this rosebud is quite a surprise. It reminds me of how I can usually spot artificial flowers. If they look too perfect. Any seeming perfection is artificial, I think. That second quote reminds me of how things that annoy us very much in others are usually because we have the same things ourselves.

  4. That second quote reminds me of checking the log in my own eye first before pointing out the speck in the other person's eye. Nicely captured imperfect rose bud!

  9. Leave it to you to take something 'flawed' that most of us wouldn't take time to photograph, and make something beautiful of it, Love the DOF and color in BG.

  16. Ah, literary allusions to the "canker" eating away at the beauty of youth come to mind with this perfectly captured image. Love it! Also love the Jung quote today. . .so thought-provokingly true!

  20. An excellent shot Stacey, eventhough the rosebud isn't perfect. Even imperfections in nature besides life, which is so right with your quotes.
