Thoughts and Description
After some thought, after being rekindled into the fun of origami (which is something that has fascinated me since and provided hours of fun when I was a kid) I made these three butterflies following a tutorial off the web.
They are flying out of their cocoons - renewed from their previous form as a caterpillar. As I made these, I realized that in fact I seem to have some resemblance to butterflies - when I'm mad or upset about something, I prefer to isolate myself from everyone (build myself a cocoon if you wish) until I've eaten up over the thoughts and ideas (well unlike the butterfly I don't actually digest myself, but my feelings ^^) and after some time come out as a new and hopefully better person (the butterfly).
The setup took some time to create since I had to suspend the butterflies from a stick taped to a broomstick and stop them from turning with any slight movement of air (I eventually solved that by improving the setup ). In the back I had to set up a way to hold the lights (yes the bokeh as usual is real ) and after convincing my mother to let me get out the lights (I've been wanting to take a photo with such bokeh since March I believe), and adjusting my desk light... voila This is probably my most favorite photo to date ^^

I refreshed the page I left open overnight to see how many faves I got - it had already jumped a 100 which is strange for my photos, and then my eyesight flickered to the comments and I read "Congrats on the DD!"..
