Do we need to make nature more beautiful?

Although I was skeptic at first about photo editing, I got really excited about all the cool things one can do with a few clicks. But after I played around a bit I really started to ask myself, do we really need to make nature more beautiful than she actually is and why?

Fact is that really unrealistic photos are kind of “in” right now, photos that show magical fairy-tail like looking places around the world. I’m also kind of found of such photos, I just can’t help but think: “wow, it’s so beautiful and magical, like another more perfect world”. In this post you see some examples of such photos (via pinterest and evgeni dinev photography).

Here I picked up three beautiful places in Bulgaria for you, because I have visited all three of them, so I have some idea of how they really look like. These three places are really beautiful and magical in real life too, but not in the way they are on these pictures. Their natural beauty is kind of replaced with some more ideal and painting-like beauty, which is more beautiful, but less touching, moving and emotional…

Doesn’t this remind you of something? To me it sounds like the situation we currently have with beauty and fashion photography, which is still dominated by unreal looking doll-like faces, that don’t really represent the real people behind them. That’s how I feel about these magical landscapes too – they look perfect and beautiful, but they don’t really remind me of these places in the real life, they are like their ideal presence in a parallel universe, that just lacks some soul and heart…

So are we on the way to create unrealistic expectations on nature too? Is a “normal” landscape picture just boring in this overstimulated modern world? Do people actually go to visit places based on such pictures? Do they feel disappointed when they are actually there or do they take this reality-picture differences for just normal and edit up their photos afterwards too, so that the place looks magical again?

How do you feel about it?

About beauty and Monica Bellucci…

January 5, 2010

Monica Bellucci is in my opinion one very beautiful woman.  I love her.

Yesterday we (me, boyfriend & roommates) were watching “How much do you love me”. At  least we tried to watch it, but we were too many people and it didn’t work out good for the movie… However, at some point one of my female roommates started a discussion about what people do find in Monica Bellucci.
