The Word Butterfly

"The word 'butterfly' made him blush, though he didn't know why."
Everything is Illuminated by Jonathan Safran Foer"Do only butterflies die in flames? What about those devoured by the flames within them?"
On the Heights of Despair by
Emile M. Cioran, existentialist philosopher
* I took these photos back in January. I really love them but I waited to post them until a day like today.

Yesterday a guy came into my coffee shop reading a book by Dave Eggers. We talked and talked and i told him that Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius was on my book list but that i already connected with the title so much that i was afraid the book would let me down. He laughed and said he felt the same way about Everything is Illuminated but that he wasn't disappointed. That just so happens to be my favorite book of all time. b u t t e r f l i e s .


  1. I think I must hear about this mystery man...

  2. Oh you have to read it! Heartbreaking work of a staggering genius is one of my all time favorite books. I think you will love it. The butterfly pictures are so beautiful. What kind of camera and film do you use? I have 2 really old canons and I love them.. and a Diana camera (which is basically a Holga). You would love a Holga, and the unpredictable, dreamy pictures it produces!
