Simplicity – 29/17

Hortus Botanicus Leiden

Simplicity and beauty are definitely in the eye of the beholder. A bunch of leaves – just leaves… simplicity? Have closer look. Do you see all the veins? All the different colours and shades? Purple, green, grey. The little hairs? Maybe you do but maybe you don’t and it’s just a bunch of leaves. I’ll leave that decision up to you 🙂

Speaking for myself, it pretty much depends on the day you ask me. One day I would say it’s just a bunch of leaves and walk past. The next day I would realise how much there is to see and I would get my camera out. The picture was taken at the Hortus Botanicus Leiden. The botanic garden is definitely worth visiting when you are in the area.


...you will find a pot of gold. The truth is that none has ever found the end of the rainbow or the promised pot of gold. I haven't found them either but I have found many wonderful places during my travels in Europe. Come follow me and see the world with my eyes. Whenever I think I have found the most wonderful place, I know that I will continue to search, discover and travel. I know that I will find new places and that I will again think that they are the most wonderful places that I've ever seen. This a personal project where I want to share my travel experience, passion for photography and creativity with you.
