There is beauty in darkness and a darkness in beauty.
I have never really been drawn to what most people today, or ever for that matter, would consider to be the traditional standard of what beauty is considered to be. Standards change, does that mean you will change your mind?
When I look at something that is generally thought to be inherently dark in nature, I can see a beauty that I can truly appreciate. How many will choose to look past the darkness to what can be seen beyond?
When I see what others perceive to be what they believe should be beautiful, I see only the forces of mass marketing, capitalism, consumerism, societal dictum, unrealistic ideology and an overwhelming pressure for acceptance.
Beauty is what I see, what I perceive to be beautiful. Beauty is not what I am told should be beautiful.
