butterflies and hurricanes

Me Myself and Eye

In order to make this title make sense, I am currently sipping a Hurricane whilst I upload these pics from the zoo the other day. This is obviously a fib, given that it is 9am on a Thursday, but go with me on this one. Anyway, this particular title is from one of my favourite Muse songs which concerns itself with chaos theory, with specific emphasis on the Butterfly Effect. As far as I am concerned, far too many musicians have overlooked this area of physics when looking for inspiration for a quick ditty.

For those of you who have no idea what I am talking about, here is a link to the song being played live at Wembley in 2007: Butterflies and Hurricanes Live.

I realise it may be a bit too much of a racket for some, but at least hang around for the piano solo at 3:45. It’s so subtly done you have to love it.

Enough blather, here are the pics – see if you can spot the hurricane:

Over the course of 7 days, we dived deep, unpacked our mental luggage, analyzed our artistic selves, dreamt up some crazy visions, learnt new techniques, ran amok through an abandoned abbey, communed with ...

It's been a while since I just went out just shooting random stuff, so after spending the morning working at home, I got to go out and spend some time at the Indianapolis Zoo. My main goal originally was to go and hang out with the butterflies. They have a great selection there, and they are always pretty keen to sit around and pose. Plus the fact they are indoors means there is no wind to deal with, which can be a nightmare if you are trying to shoot macro images. Anyhow, I ventured outside to the gardens (which I had completely forgotten about) and it was a riot of colour. These are some of my fave shots from the day from the gardens. Butte ...
