New – But Still The Same

It makes sense that the very first photo challenge for this year is new, I am so happy that I didn’t miss it!

I created this image for one of my cards in my Oracle Deck and felt it was a great fit for this challenge. Origami demonstrates beautifully how we can transform into someone completely new, while remaining true to who we are. With a few expert folds a flat piece of paper becomes a beautiful swan, yet it is still the same piece of paper…just no longer flat.

So here’s to a fantastic year ahead with many new and exciting transformations.
