How do you define beauty?
In a person- do you consider the face, the body or the personality?
In a place- do you consider the attraction, the culture or the people?
In a photo- do you consider the background, the editing or the caption?
I mean, there are always a lot of factors that we consider before giving our final judgement. The idea of beauty has always been subjective. While I may find Amber Heard and Olivia Palermo as the most beautiful women in the world, you might disagree and say it’s Miranda Kerr and Kendall Jenner; While I may say Paris and Dubai are the most beautiful cities in the world, you might argue and say it’s New York and Dublin; And while I claim that Jay Alvarrez and Jack Morris are the best content creators in the online world, you might insist that it’s Aimee Song and Negin Mirsalehi.
The point is, it all comes down on our own definition of beauty. However, I admire people who actually tries to see the beauty in everything. Take these photos as an example. Would you believe if I tell you that this was actually taken in a closed area with objects suggestive of either an uncompleted construction or a demolished project somewhere in Jumeirah?
Initially, I would say no. It looks more of an attraction built intentionally to attract more tourists. I would even think that maybe they got the inspiration from the Stonehenge in England. But then again, it was just a random construction site, as I’ve heard, with nothing really significant about it.
The big “but” is, people actually chose to see the beauty that lies in it. They made it look something more than just what it is. And that tells something.
Whatever this might be, IT IS BEAUTIFUL. And that just proves that we can find beauty even in the most unexpected circumstances.
PS. This might have been the best shoot I’ve done so far. It was quick and we had the location all to ourselves during the golden hour. I also managed to edit a 30-sec post teaser which you can watch here.
