This is a photo that I took recently as one of my first real ventures into photography. I'm fond of it because it has to be looked at for a moment in order to have an understanding of what it is. In fact, it's a flower missing some petals that has fallen in just the right way that it looks like a butterfly. I was captivated by this idea because it blurs the line between plant and animal, showing the connection between all life, sentient or not, further shown by the way the petals blend into the dirty surface underneath.
I want to create photography that tells a story or conveys a specific meaning. I'm very much a beginner, but I'm ambitious about creating art for a specific purpose, be it meaning or story.
