Today is the one year anniversary of my blog. What a year it has been! It was truly a leap of faith for me to undertake the responsibility of writing a blog. At the beginning, I was probably the only person who read my blog. These days, who knows? I have a few friends who keep up with it; beyond them, I have no idea. Someday I may develop a big following. For now, I am content with my small, but loyal readership.
Going with the concept of a leap of faith, I am sharing "Flight of Fancy" with my readers today. It is based on a photo I found in a shoebox the other day. I took it nine years ago when my daughter was still in preschool, at a beautiful public park called Brookside Gardens in Wheaton, MD, to which two moms and three preschoolers took a field trip.
They were having a special exhibit of a butterfly show. Hundreds of exotic butterflies fluttering about everywhere was a sight to behold. I somehow captured these two orange butterflies in the frame: one in flight, the other in a brief moment of stillness. I love the juxtaposition of oranges and violets--a color combination I rarely use, but now I will.
Thank you for reading my blog. Happy Anniversary!
