Ragtag Daily Prompt: Design

Words like accidental or coincidence rarely applied to events at court. Under the Prime Minister’s watchful eye, ceremonial roles of the crown were never ignored. Every minute of the Queen’s day was subject to court ceremonial and etiquette. Additionally, every tidbit of gossip was a missile sent with specific targets in mind. Nothing was left to chance. Everything was the result of design. Of course, the best laid plans… More often that not, many of the Prime Minister’s little intrigues fell to pieces, leaving him embarrassed. But despite the set-backs, it didn’t stop him from trying and trying.

Heaven and hell be damned! Thought the Prime Minister. My will shall be done on earth. We’ll worry about heaven later.

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!
