Simple Beauty

I am constantly amazed by the beauty that can be found in the simplest parts of life, such as a dandelion, and how photography can help make you notice it.

Today's post is dedicated to my grandfather, who left us on Saturday, just 4 days shy of his 90th birthday. I love you Grandpa. Thank you for being such a wonderful Grandpa to me and Great-Grandpa to my son. Rest in Peace. ♥
