Small red ribbons in a monochrome world
Today all the colours outside my window are in black and white. Everything looks monochrome. The small red ribbons on the steps to our front door are the only reminder that I'm not looking at a black and white photograph.
Occasionally life is like that. All black and white. Not much colour.
Some people think that black and white pictures are boring and old. They want the vibrancy of colour and deep saturation showing the brilliance of images, of life.
But there is amazing beauty in black and white too.
In the shades of the shadows, In the tones of the greys, whites and even the depths of the blackness. There are things to be seen and enjoyed, if you will look, deeply.
And sometimes it takes time to see the beauty, so slow down a bit. Live in the moment and look for the beauty in the black and white and greys of your life. Look for the small red ribbons that will remind you that you are living life and not just staring at an image.
They are there, you just need to see.
Take your time to look.
