It seems that there are always articles on the web that discuss some aspect of beauty, composition, subject matter, art, etc. relative to photography. One of the more recent ones was: Love, Beauty, and other Unfortunate Clichés by Guy Tal.
I like these types of articles. I like beautiful art as much as the average photographer, but I have often stated that I don’t make pictures of beautiful things due to a scarcity of them. I would love to go and see beautiful places so that I could make the kind of art Guy makes, but I have to look for other things and try to make beautiful pictures of the common, not so beautiful objects. Is the above a scene of beauty? I don’t think many would think so, but I still like keeping my eyes open for scenes that interest me. The above is one I made while I was taking pictures for my model railroader’s project. My challenge is to find beauty and interest among the common things in life, day by day.
