Vake Cemetery

photography: butterfly (Today was a good day)

I went to Vake Cemetery, in the posh part of Tbilisi,  hoping to find some images for the weekly theme “creepy”, instead I found a beautiful butterfly and took a few shots. ‘Twas a good day and not the least bit creepy. I am no expert on butterflies, looking through google images, I think this maybe a yellow swallowtail butterfly. If any lepidopterists know differently please let me know.

Here is my first attempt at a mesh gallery:

Weekly Photo Challenge: Gone, but not forgotten (Vake Cemetery)

Gone, but not forgotten

Gone, but not forgotten

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Gone, But Not Forgotten.”

The title of the challenge suggested to me someone who had died (gone), so I went to the cemetery looking for photographic inspiration. The recent flowers suggested “not forgotten”.
