Ellipsis Monday Photo Shoot: #34: Earth Day!

"There is hope if people will begin to awaken that spiritual part of themselves, that heartfelt knowledge that we are caretakers of this planet."

-Brook Medicine

Earth Day is Wednesday, April 22nd, so, let's celebrate it together!


Next Wednesday, the whole world will reflect on ways we can help the environment. Here is what I would like to see from all you EARTH Warriors... show me something in the natural world that you appreciate in particular. Get your cameras out and find something THIS WEEK! Ordinarily I allow archived photos, but for this week I want to see something new, so, let's be mindful of this year's EARTH DAY, by getting out with the camera and focusing on the EARTH'S natural beauty and it's gifts to we humans. A gorgeous landscape. Flowers bursting forth from an organic garden. Fresh organic fruit and vegetables. A beautiful pristine shoreline, a grove of beautiful trees, or anything that shows EARTH DAY in all it's glory. :)

Extra Credit: Show me what you are doing to help out the EARTH. Show me your recycle bins, or the reusable bags you take on shopping trips. Anything you can photograph that you do personally to help the EARTH!

Note: I will be doing this assignment right along with you. Look for my entry on Wednesday!

**Please Read**
You have until next Sunday, at 9:00 pm ET to get your photo, post it to your blog, journal or website, and then comeback here with your link.
