Bullet with butterfly wings - Smashing Pumpkins - Despite all my rage I'm still just a rat in a cage... The photo must contain at least 2 out of the following 3 elements: Smashing (adj.), Wing and Rage. This is a tribute to another fundamental band and a hymn of the nineties. Perhaps it is not a coincidence that this song's video ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1DowTH201wI ) is a clear homage to one of the most fundamental photo reports of the century: the Workers of Serra Pelada by SebastiĆ£o Salgado - a goldrush almost on the turn of the 21st century: http://www.girafamania.com.br/montagem/fotografo-sebastiao-salgado.html

This butterfly sought freedom from the house it was caught in - together with 300 other butterflies - at a botanical garden in Richmond, VA. One can see its tattered wings and feel its sense of helplessness in the pose of its legs.
