Sublime and Beautiful Sunday Beauty is all around us if we just look

Let me start with a photo

Also I guess it could be seen as a Thoughtful Daily post hosted by @wesphilbin,
Maybe I have a positive outlook on life and maybe what I feel or are about to say is unrealistic or doesn't makes sense to some, and that's fine, that's what makes the world interesting everyone has different perspectives.
and with that thought I wonder off subject for a bit now so bare with me,

You know the world would be a better place is more people could accept others have different opinions of things and simply agree to disagree, but it seems to me these days when it comes to politics and vaccinations, far to many people instead are taking the its my way or the highway kind of attitude.
I have my ow opinions on both subjects and its not an area I get into discussions with people about as with many it could become heated, so I let it go, nod my head if people want to go on about it but will only discus sit with people that its clear to me there open to discuss and share thoughts not to try and force their opinion on others.

OK enough on that subject which is neither sublime of beautiful, perhaps it is a daily thought but not the one I was thinking about when I started writing this, so let me get back on track

I like to thing if we open our eyes and look around we can find beauty in everything, dang I once did a post about rubbish tins in NYC and tried to pitch even trash can be seen as beautiful looked at in the right way and with the right perspective, and I think if you try to go through life looking for the good and beauty all around you, you will find yourself a lot happier and content.

But do not worry I am not going to do a post about trash or rubbish bins, boats are the subject of this post.
I start with this fishing boat above, clearly been in service for a long time, all rusty and worn, but when I saw it in the early morning light with the colors of sunrise behind it all I saw was beauty and a photo to take.

and a poem by Derrick Foster I read recently came to mind that fits my thought sin this post

I have seen beauty
In the eyes of my friend
In the smile of a child
In wisdom of the aged

I have seen beauty
On a ride across a river
On a bus going down town
On a plane heading home

I have seen beauty
While walking in rain
While strolling in sun
While laying in grass

I have seen beauty
In the look of a stranger
In the arms of a lover
In the heart of family
*

I have seen beauty
At the back of a train
At a café on the corner
At a gas station at the end of the road

I have seen beauty
While flying across sky
While running in the park
While sitting in a garden
There is beauty all around
Just waiting to be found
In the air and on the ground
Also in wide open places


I have seen beauty
In private reverie
In contemplating life
In sitting idly on a couch***


I have seen beauty
While staring into space
While floating on water
While riding on a bus***

I have seen beauty
Looking in a mirror
Gazing out to sea
Leaning against a wall

I have seen a variety of beauty
In my minds eye
In my hearts murmur
In my own hands

I have felt beauty
Form another's point of view
From those who speak true
From living in the world

I have heard beauty
In the gurgle of a new born
In the rebellion of a teen
In the sigh of an adult
To hear such beauty
Is quite a relief?
And on days I can't take it
I welcome the call
Of beauty in us all

I have touched beauty
By befriending others
By listening to their plea
By helping them to see

There is beauty
In places we don't look
In the pages of a book
On the faces of foreigners

I have seen beauty
At the end of the street
From a man on a bike
To the woman on a hike
I have witnessed beauty
While standing in the cut
Under the radar
Looking from afar
There is beauty
In the ether
In the air
Where beauty can be found Everywhere

the rest of the post will be photos of another boat which is the Buckley Mcallister

It is a tug boat built in 2014 and is 29.26M long x 10.36 m wide

Whenever I see tug boats I am kind of amazed by them they are not that big, but they are so powerful and can tow large boats and barges, and when I saw this one docked at sunrise recently as I took the photos I thought of them for a Sublime and beautiful post

A mono shot showing some of the equipment atop of the boat, being a former Telecom tech I always notice antennas radar domes etc etc

Yes!!

Goodness sakes, we are all just flying around out here, right? Trying to tread water, take care of ourselves and family... friends. Maybe share things from a different perspective?

I think this post is wonderful brother. And certainly a #thoughtfuldailypost... LOVE the photos as well. Hope the hand continues to get better, and have a great day today!

Thanks so much, the odd time random thoughts come into my head as I writ ea post, and somethimes those thoughts slip into a post, and sometimes when I do that I remember to make it a thoughtful daily post lOL

Have a great day my Friend

Thoroughly enjoyed reading the poetry, so true to life, beauty is found everywhere!

Rustic colour in early morning sky brings out a beauty on the rusted fishing boat, yet most see rust as the cancer of the sea it too hold a beauty in the right light.

@tipu curate

Thanks so much for the tipu curation., I seem to have been inactive on there to long and dropped from it, I must check into it again

Wonderful words... 😃

Pleasure, enjoy the week ahead!

I like to thing if we open our eyes and look around we can find beauty in everything, dang I once did a post about rubbish tins in NYC and tried to pitch even trash can be seen as beautiful looked at in the right way and with the right perspective, and I think if you try to go through life looking for the good and beauty all around you, you will find yourself a lot happier and content.

Oh man there is some very solid truth in this right here! For me, it is all about perspective. And I take this literally and figuratively as well.

If you find something displeasing in form or appearance, then try viewing from a higher or lower level. Our perspective of things can be altered dramatically by changing the level on how we are viewing it.

It seems as though we have lost the ability to disagree and still remain friendly. Differences of opinions is what makes our species so splendidly beautiful and just because I may not believe exactly as someone else does not mean I have hate or distaste for them in the slightest. Funny how we've let it come to this socially.

I think were on the same wavelength here, both about finding beauty anywhere if we look from different perspectives.
and yes I would like to think I havent lost the ability to hear differing opinions without getting irate, but sadly it seems so many others have, the anger and insults we see on social media these days is quite disturbing

It has such a cancerous poison to it and it makes me weep for what we will become if we don't attempt to correct it.

I got so caught up in those thoughts I forgot to comment on the photos lolol I've mentioned my adoration for boats and I'm pretty sure it goes back to what I consider to be my hometown in coastal Georgia. There was always a fleet of shrimp boats tied up or coming and going and their silhouette against the sky, day or night, was beautiful to me. That first picture reminded me of those shrimp boats and the hard men who had to work them!

Exactly the time for a change to happen is now and I hope it will come, but am not so sure it will

The port here is one of the busiest in the country from what I have read, I see the boats going on most days on my early morning walks

You know the world would be a better place is more people could accept others have different opinions of things

That would be sublime and beatiful. But the reality is that people often do not accept others, if they are different from them.

I once did a post about rubbish tins in NYC and tried to pitch even trash can be seen as beautiful looked at in the right way and with the right perspective

I look at them considering that it is better to put rubbish into them than throwing rubbish randomly on the streets everywhere. But some people throw their trash on the streets. Others throw edible food into the trash cans. Homeless people can take the food out, and eat it.

So yes. This is all about perspective and viewpoint.

But do not worry I am not going to do a post about trash or rubbish bins, boats are the subject of this post.

Speaking of boats, my goal is to buy and live on a sailboat.

Have a nice day and have a nice weekend.
All the best. Greetings and much love from Hungary.

I hope one day you can achieve your dream and buy a sailboat you may well like my post coming up on Tuesday :)

Have a nice day and have a nice weekend.
All the best.

Great, I love seeing your places and photos even more. Thank you for the gift my brother. If only we could be together, maybe I would be the best photographer of all my life @tattoodjay.

👍🙂👍

I absolutely adore that picture of that old rusty boat. Now that has character!

It's true, it's incredibly sad when the politicization of the nation begins to damage friendships and, in cases, families. You're right, it's certainly not a beautiful thing. Unlike that boat. Which is superb.

Thanks, some see rusty and think its ugly, but to me it brings out the tough character of the boat

I have a weakness for sunsets! beautiful photos.
In a while I publish some photos that I took at the salt pans of Trapani, Sicily

Cool I will try and catch your post

Wow! Great post!

Everyone has an opinion , and I am okay with that, if they respect others words. It's all good.

Brilliant colors on the first shot and loved the poem selected.

Thanks

Yes thats exactly how I feel :)

That poem just rang out to me :)

That old boat reminds me of the one I see in the Netflix series of Captain America and the Winter Soldier.
