Weekly Photo Challenge: Symbol


Iowa Capitol Building

This structure can be a symbol of many things. Of a State. Of a government. Of law and constitution.


Free as a butterfly.

Or it could be a symbol of liberty. Of freedom.


But on the day I took this photos, it took another meaning.

As a transplant, and after several years of living as an outsider, it became a personal symbol of my adopted home.


A foreigner, no more.
