The Because Project 7

Posted by Ruthiebear (Titusville, NJ, United States) on 13 September 2017 in People & Portrait.

My daughter-inlaw reached down and the butterfly climbed into her hand. It then flew onto the Butterfly Bush.
This a series that documents the day we had the fundraiser at our house.
I used this series as an opportunity to experiment with HDR, texture, artsy, B&W and other enhancing techniques.
I value your comments
