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!

Ragged indeed – poor thing has had a tough go of it!
S/He has indeed Tina! Thanks for commenting 🙂
Welcome back and congratulations!!!
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!
LOL, thanks Patricia … its a fairly standard ‘contemporary’ image, but I guess I tried to communicate the textures of the landscape & natural concepts which does capture what my artwork is about per se …. thanks for taking the time to catch up 🙂 And, yes, I see lots of amazing stuff in my backyard – maybe I should a post about that!
Oh yes!! That would be an awesome post! I love nature and I’m sure your followers do also!
I’ll add it the list 🙂
