ABC WEDNESDAY - "K" is for "Kalology"

Kalology is the study of beauty, and the ways in which beauty influences society.  You never know when a shot will appear, and seated in a trolley bus, I snapped this photo of the young woman eating an ice cream.  When I uploaded it, I saw that it echoed the advertisement for Breakfast at Tiffany's, which originally starred a famous beauty, Audrey Hepburn.  "Audrey" is eating a croissant. (The woman in the advertisement is a local actress.)

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so they say.  Do you agree?

See other K's on ABC WEDNESDAY.

Yes, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
Terrific capture from the trolley.
Interesting how the 2 women mirror each other.

What a terrific accident! Too bad the ice cream lady didn't have her sun glasses down as she then would have been a dead ringer for Audrey.

Kalology ... a word i HAVE Not stumbled across before.

Yes, beauty is definitely in the eye of the beholder. There are some things that people can agree are beautiful, but it is not very wide. And it certainly does not extend to the beauty of people. Some people only consider surface beauty while others look to the beauty of character.

Fascinating capture. The local actress is watching you very carefully...ever aware she is on a stage of sorts. Both women are indeed beautiful. And I think that's an objective observation unrelated to the "beholder". :-)

Your subconscious must have seen it, nice serendipity.
