The Beauty of Wrinkles


It ought to be lovely to be old,
To be full of the peace that comes with experience
And wrinkled ripe fulfillment. - D.H. Lawrence


Hi everyone,
I love the above quote. Recently for the heck of it I googled “the beauty of wrinkles” and it came up in a search along with the beautiful portfolio of California based photographer Elazar Harel. Ooh la la. What a find. I contacted him to see what he thought of featuring some of his photos on Lines of Beauty and he graciously obliged. Thank you Elazar. Your photography is a real treat. As someone on your website said about your work: “I love your pictures. The color, the composition, the clarity, the drama. It's all there.”

I couldn't agree more.


                             
     I also like the intensity of color in your work, and the emotion behind your photographs.
           .
                                                           Isn't she beautiful?

                             

It ought to be lovely to be old,

 

To be full of the peace that comes with experience


And wrinkled ripe fulfillment.
