IdahoBlueBird50’s AOTD Challenge: September 25, 2019

It Should come as a surprise to noone that my entry in today’s Animal of the Day Challenge is a butterfly shot. What is surprising, at least to me, is that I shot this photo using my cell phone. These butterflies are dancing in the air, albeit close to the ground, as their shadows attest.Butterfly 6

Max Lord of the manor 2Maxwell fully intended to purloin the chicken from the table as soon as Monica left the kitchen, but then he saw a mouse and decided that he’d rather pursue that venture.

Since its inception in 2010, Beautiful Photographs has had the same layout. Such conservatism is out of character for the publisher of this site. In the spirit of innovation, we’ve decided to give the WordPress theme a try. It is called Monet and is identified as a theme expressly devoted to photography. Part of my inspiration for this decision is based on a visit to the Phillips Collection on Dupont Circle, Washington DC in 1999. There I saw an exhibit of collected works by the Expressionist painter Claude Monet. It was a seminal moment in my career as an artist. Please let me know what you think. All feedback, positive or otherwise, will be greatly appreciated. Happy blogging, all! RussellButterfly Forever!
