Large White Butterfly

White butterflies show up in my life all the time. Maybe they do for everyone, but it’s just that I notice them. They make me stop and think of the Holy Spirit’s presence and role in my life. This image is a photogram of a Lebanese postage stamp. Instead of using a negative, the stamp was placed in the photographic enlarger in the darkroom, which produced an enlarged negative image. Later, I made a contact print, which resulted in this highly detailed positive image.

  1. Nate, did you know that in Catholic spirituality (or so i was told once!) the butterfly IS the symbol of the Holy Spirit… Fun confirmation of your sense! 🙂 JPH
