Project 52 [Twenty-Twelve]: Week 29 ~ Me, Ready to Fly

The My Four Hens Project 52 theme this week is “me.” This week was a tough one. I put myself out there professionally and I got rejected. I toyed around with many ideas for this week’s photo but I ultimately followed my heart and shot some macro. Whenever I’m feeling blue, going out with my macro lens always makes me feel better. I found this swallowtail butterfly in a neighbor’s yard. Their wings flutter so quickly, it’s hard to capture them at all. I really love how the antennae and legs are perfectly focused, while the wings show some motion blur… and I feel this symbolizes me so well. At my core, I know what I love and what brings me joy, yet I’m always seeking new knowledge and skills; being still and in motion at the same time. After going this through denial process, feeling pretty low, then coming up for air, I’m now ready to fly.
