How do we perceive beauty? Without alteration, the image of the flower and its distortion create the truthful abstraction of beauty. This may parallel personal beliefs about the beauty of oneself and the beauty we perceive in others. In the reflection, the flower remains a flower. Perfectly. I ask as you contemplate this image, observe your own reflection. Are you not inherently beautiful?
