New Beginnings

Photographer's Statement:

This photo is a representation of the many beauties that new life can bring. In this photo i have captured the very beginnings of a Monarch’s life and how beautiful and fragile it can be. With my photographs i feel i capture the very meaning of nothing gold can stay by the poet Robert Frost by showing that even though the life of beautiful things does not last forever, it’s beauty is still infinite.
