Abkhazi Garden Teahouse Teapots
Susan and I have been to the Abkhazi Garden Teahouse in Victoria, B.C. twice now in December. Great teas and wonderful unique teapots and teacups. Everyone gets a different teapot and teacup! I loved the teapots, the lighting, the teas and the high tea!
In this photo I took a lot of time to make black out everything but the teapots and the wonderful light and the tablecloth. So much beauty!

I love this photo so much. The lighting and shadow. The linen tablecloth. The intricate shape of the coffee cup handle. The exquisite, intricate, dainty detailed gold leaf pattern. How the gold leaf in the black bottom part of the cup shines so golden bright. The intricate lighting on the inside top of the cup. The lighting and shadows on the saucer. Such amazing artistry in this wonderfully crafted cup! Such beauty in the afternoon light. Such wonderful hot flavor of tea at sunset in December in Victoria.
General Information on my manifestations of beauty blog posts:
Beauty dances in many forms, in many manifestations, for example, over time a caterpillar becomes a larvae becomes a butterfly. This is beauty observed through time.
Yet Beauty can also be a single moment, a single photograph. Single moment beauty can viewed through many different filters. The same beauty, the same moment, seen differently, With each filter bringing out a different aspect of the unspeakable and multilayered beauty in each object.
I have been red green colorblind all my life, I see the world differently than those who are not colorblind. I often wonder how they see. Perhaps because of this, I love taking the same photograph and looking at it through different filters using programs like aperture, Lightroom, and Photoshop.
