Snapshot Saturday: Butterfly Two

We’re taking another step away from stories and poetry and words in general to enjoy something visual. A little photography to break up the boring words of this blog. And, of course, along with that photography is a lot fo words. You can’t escape the words! Anyway, here’s your weekly dose of my amateur photography skills. If you want to see more, check out the Photography Page. If you’ve been keeping track of all the photos I’ve posted for Snapshot Saturday, which is your favorite so far?

Butterfly 2. May 2019. f/5.6. 1/250. 55mm.

This is the second of two snapshots of a butterfly I took in Fairbanks, AK. It was chilling in a bush, minding it’s business. I took advantage of it’s lack of mobility and took a couple photos. I had not yet purchased another lens for my Canon Rebel T7i camera, so I had to use the standard 18mm-55mm lens my camera came with at purchase. The other butterfly photo will be featured next week. And yes, the butterfly is judging us all in this photo.

Flashback Friday Poetry: Home is Your Creation

home is where the Heart is everyone knows
it’s the place you visit to regain Peace
but when you’ve lost your Heart, where do you go
running blindly through the Darkness so deep
the faster you run, the harder to Grow
They devour your Mind, yes every piece
the faster you Run the harder to grow
running Blindly through the darkness so deep
but when you’ve Lost your heart where do you go
it’s the Place you visit to regain peace
Home is where the heart is everyone Knows

Early poetry from James.
