{this moment} see beautiful

see beautiful in memorials.
we found this sign on highway 126 in ventura county. it makes my heart smile that the "forgotten war" isn't completely forgotten. (this one's for you pop!)
[pop proudly served the us navy from 1950-1953 on the uss valley forge]

see beautiful in silhouettes.
you don't have to see detail, to know something is beautiful. i thought the way the sun was shining behind these palm trees, in santa barbara, was quite stunning. i'm glad i was able to capture this moment in time.

see beautiful in calla lilies.
even though it is in a bed of canna, this calla lily comes back every year to bloom for st anthony.

see beautiful in the horizon.
as a native californian, i know i take the ocean and it's beauty for granted, but it really is quite spectacular.

and of course i see beautiful in the eyes of my little bailey.
