13th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Butterfly overcoming the odds
This picture depicts a butterfly who was once wounded overcoming it's challenges. The brown dead flowers represent the butterfly's past. The purple flower represents hope and rebirth. The butterfly stands with confidence and is pointed in a direction to fly above and beyond it's past. The green leaves represent hope and life.
At the time I took this photo I was struggling to see hope and was in a huge fight for my life due to my past abuse. This picture gave me a lot of hope to overcome and to go in the direction of giving hope to others.
