This Ocean City Cool Capture Challenge Week 17 Beautiful is all about us finding cool photos of something that you find that’s #Beautiful …
What is #beautiful to you? A sunrise, waves rolling into shore, your family photo or a baby playing or kids playing, a rosebud or patch of flowers, a bird singing, a bee buzzing, a painting or maybe a seashell, your friend completing their first marathon or Spartan Race…
The saying that first appeared in the 3rd Century BC in Greek is as apt today as it was at that time…
“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder”
Again, it’s all about imagination & being creative… This Photo Contest is open to all, and is up to you if you’d like to be creative with it… Share your Painting, Photoshop it, have fun with it…
