the Lotus

I have always loved the lotus flower. Perhaps this love stems from my love of Egyptian archaeology when I was young. My [wonderful, inspiring, amazing] aunt gave me teeny Egyptian lotus earrings many years ago. I treasured them because of what they represented to me - travel, archaeology, family. When I met my first real lotus flower, I became enamored with her form, lines, and subtle beauty. She represents wisdom, life, beauty, mystery. Although my photography surely needs work, I continue to photograph any lotus I come upon. They aren't found in the wild here, though, so it isn't often enough.

  1. I am honored to offer your first commentary! I hope you find yourself :-) and explore lots with your blog! Egyptian archaeology is a pretty finely focused interest for a young person...sounds like there is a story there.
