Day 110: Bright Butterfly

by Ivan Steenkamp April. 23, 2017 1215 views


Before I took this photo of a plastic butterfly, I had been thinking about how light interacts with objects from different angles. When I noticed this magnet butterfly on our flue guard I immediately knew that if I used my flash it would look really good! I used my flash and bounced the light off of the ceiling. I like how it turned out and how the butterfly stands out from the grate.

Very vibrant red, purple and green plastic butterfly on a flue guard (black and white meta grate with holes in them).
