Blue Butterfly


I took this photo several years ago at the Calaway Gardens Butterfly conservatory. I was attracted to the way the light shone through the butterfly’s wings highlighting their brilliant color and delicacy.

I shot the photo using a 38 – 380mm zoom at f/4 and 1/32s.
In photoshop elements I cropped it and adjusted the contrast slightly to show the veins in the wings in the light colored areas.

What to say about myself? I currently live in New Orleans where I attend NOBTS (New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary). I am originally from TX and moved here by way of the MS gulf coast. I lived in Biloxi and moved here after Katrina. I call my journal Take two because it seems that a lot of things in my life are do overs right now. This is my second stab at higher education, my second journal, and the next chapter in my life after Katrina. There is probably a lot more that I could say but I think that if it really needs saying; it will come out in time through my journal. In the meantime I hope you enjoy what you read. RW

  1. I remember when you went there, and this is a beautiful photo. Butterflies are such beautiful creatures aren’t they?

    Oooh and I did have six, but if you want to participate, and the other person who commented, I will make it 8. I’m easy 🙂 If you get a chance will you email me your new mailing address? I don’t have it. Pretty please.

    *hugs* Have a wonderful week!
