Eye Of The Beholder

Eye Of The Beholder

What is beauty? I don't have the answer. It's a question that's supposed to make you think. Following are two photos of the same person:

Photo #1

Photo #2

The first one is the subject at a much younger age and since society tends to prefer the younger over the older, which do you think is the more attractive look? Maybe neither one? Are attractiveness and beauty the same thing? Attraction is a part of desire which is definitely a part of our samsara.

By the way, recognize the eyes?
