Ellipsis Monday Photo Shoot # 22: Rocks Or Stones


"A pile of rocks ceases to be a rock when somebody contemplates it with the idea of a cathedral in mind."

-Antoine de Saint-Exupery

If you come to San Francisco, you will see these rocks sticking up in the bay. They are located right next to the Golden Gate Bridge on the north side, just as you are entering in Marin County. They are the inspiration for this week's assignment.

EMPS #22: ROCKS or STONES.
Grab your cameras and show me some ROCKS. Big ROCKS, little ROCKS. LittleROCK, Arkansas, STONE soup. A Zen garden with decorative ROCKS, or how about ROCK cliffs? Sure, why not! A Pet ROCK, or ROCK candy. Take the words ROCK or STONE and use your imagination. ROCK music. ROCKING chair. ROCK ON! Stepping STONES. The Rolling STONES... it's all good!

Extra Credit:
Show me actual ROCK or STONE in an unusual or special place.

**PLEASE READ**
The deadline for this Monday Photo Shoot assignment is next Sunday, February 1st, 2009, at 9:00 PM ET. Please remember to comeback here, to this entry with the direct link to your entry, specific to this photo shoot assignment. Please... NO HYPERLINKS!
