We are surrounded by beautiful things, living or otherwise, that we are taught from a young age to dislike because they are “distasteful”. I believe the only thing that is distasteful are foggy eyes that can no longer see beauty.


These two images are part of a series of photos I took with a DIY lens right after the rain in Riyadh a few days ago when slugs and other “creepy crawlers” were out having fun in the backyard.
