Your Monday Photo Shoot: What's In A Name?

"Names are not always what they seem. The common Welsh name BZJXXLLWCP is pronounced Jackson."

-Mark Twain

Your Monday Photo Shoot: Take a picture of something that relates to your name. It can be your first name, or your last name, or of your middle name (we're not picky). Even nicknames work. And since this AOL, if you want you may use your screenname as well. Basically, if a name relates to you, let's see a picture of a representation.

-John Scalzi

According to, Baby Names World, my first name, Carly, means "little/womanly." Kind of ironic I suppose considering I am only 4'11... LOL... and I was always one of those "girly-girls." At first I thought that it would be easy to come up with a photo, but when I went tip-toeing through my files, not much popped out at me. I looked and looked...what to do, what to do? Then it occurred to me that I had just spent the whole summer photographing the beautiful butterflies at the conservatory, and my favorite had been the "Painted Ladies." They are some of the smallest of the butterflies that were on display in the exhibit, but quite lovely. So, that is my choice as a representation of the meaning of the name Carly. Just a little simple butterfly. :)
