It’s been a challenge to select a Photo of the Month for March… partly because together we made over 1500 images in March (admittedly many are for composites), but also because, in addition to Victoria’s colourful beauty this time of year (with the explosions of blossoms all over the city) we also made a trip to Tofino for a little beach walking and storm watching time. The weather while we were there was blessedly cooperative for a pair of photographers! We also made a stop in Coombs at the the Butterfly World and Gardens on our return trip. How to pick one image to represent all that?
Finally decided on this one as it sums up the best of everything from the past month. The beach sand and the shell remind us of our walks on both Chesterman Beach and Tonquin Beach in Tofino and our own Dallas Road shoreline here in Victoria, the shape pulls up memories of the butterflies in Coombs, and the butterfly also brings us to the many wonderful flowers we experience every day in our walks around our Pacific island paradise. Might also be a nod to the invisible ‘angels’ who seem to guide serendipitous events around us… 🙂
Original image made by Marcia on her Samsung Galaxy S4, pushed around some in Lightroom. Okay, that’s it. Now go out and make some photographs!
I always seem to go first. Have you ever considered a course, "Seeing The Beautiful" If it was part of early education, and required of jaded, angry, bitter adults perhaps it would help. You would be great teachers. I have deep family roots in Coombs back to 1864. If you ever get to tour the backroads, at the foot of Arrowsmith are lovely old homesteads..Perfect photo of the moth- Thanks from Worzel
Dearest Worzel: Thanks much for continuing to bless our site with your presence! Always a delight to us. Beauty truly is in the eye of the beholder, and it only takes a shift in perspective for anyone to see the beauty that surrounds them.
Thanks much for continuing to be such a wonderful part of our lives!
Thanks, it's very helpful post.
Thanks much for saying so! And thanks for dropping by our litle corner of the \’net!
