My name is Christina Joy and I am 20 years old. Among other things, I am a student, a freelance photographer, and people-watcher extraordinaire. This blog is a mason jar for the fragments of my increasingly jumbled soul. Don't be afraid of the monsters under the bed.

Her majesty's esteem

Metamorphosis - Noun
  1. Biology - a profound change in form from one stage to thenext in the life history of an organism, as from thecaterpillar to the pupa and from the pupa to the adultbutterfly. 
  2. A complete change of form, structure, or substance, astransformation by magic or witchcraft.
  3. Any complete change in appearance, character,circumstances, etc.
  4. A form resulting from any such change.


With this conceptual shoot, I wanted to show a metamorphosis from civilization to a primal stage of nature...a return to one's roots, to one's true home.  The transformation I tried to portray was meant to inspire thought and reveal beauty in rebellion, restoration, and, ultimately, decay.
