Weekly Photo Challenge: Object

It has been a while since I participated in a WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge because Christmas, New Years and getting married has pretty much filled my head!!

But, I do need to get myself back on track, so, in an attempt to do that, this weeks challenge the “object” has aroused my interest.

While my offering may not be very creative ‘composition’ wise, I am hoping the viewer might ask – which subject is the ‘object’?

This question may be difficult to answer because the contrast between the two living organic surfaces – one a moving ‘object, the other a stationary ‘object’ – is a dynamic highlighted by the individual textures of the two juxtaposed ‘objects’.

I also appreciate the ragged wings of this butterfly – in its short life it seems to have had many fights (so it is probably a male), and the contrast of this upon the lichen tree limbs demonstrates an ongoing theme in my artwork – IE : the environment and humanities inter-dependence on it, a theme explored in my PhD.

This image was taken in my backyard (a 10 acre property) where I have lots of wildlife, and I just love propagating the environment for wildlife, preserving it, watching it, photographing it and appreciating it!

Butterflies live from between 1-4 weeks depending on the species. I tried to google what this butterfly was, but couldn't find it....

  3. Dawn, this photograph is so lovely and representative of your artwork – meaning, it’s like the perfect illustration of how nature and our dependence on it are so interlocked. I can’t believe I missed this post earlier (too busy packing, I guess, yikes!) What a really amazing image to see and capture in your own backyard!
