One day during vacation I got it into my head that I needed the perfect picture of my cat Hugo's nose. It's just so small and pink and gosh darn cute that I somehow became obsessed with preserving it.
What is it about noses? And why is my kitty so reluctant to have it captured in pictures?
For me, it's one of the most beautiful mini sculptures found on a face. A nose is something that I could spend countless hours exploring the shapes, curves, shadows and lines. It's so intricate yet solid at the same time.
Usually, I spend my time stealing glances at peoples' hands, but I've been known to enjoy a nose or two when someone is not looking. A nose knows. It knows something deeper, which I can't put my finger on.
Each nose is perfectly crafted to fit the face of the person or creature it inhabits, and I suppose this quality is what I like best. Each one is unique and no matter how long I stare at this nose, I still learn something new that keeps me coming back for more.
Hope you're stealing a look at a beautiful nose right now!
