Born to Die…

There is beauty in everything including  death, decay, the transience of life and the fragility of our existences. Death is  natural, irreversible, an inevitable part of life and if we look close enough we can all see the beauty in it. The photographs below are a classic  representation of this.

Dying flowers epitomize this and show that time drains them of their colors, dehydrates their energetic petals and turns them into brittle receptacles. Yet  while dried, dying and dead, they are still beautiful and even more beautiful for their fragility.

Death gives us the opportunity to be thankful for life and allows us to embrace the joys of living.
