Ellipsis Monday Photo Shoot #36: A Walk In The Park

"All I need to make a comedy is a park, a policeman and a pretty girl."

-Charlie Chaplin

We are in May, and with April showers come May flowers! Let's take A WALK IN THE PARK this week and see what we find. No archived photos for this one! Flora. Fauna. Children. Old folks on benches. Wee folk on swings. Hot Dog carts. Artists. Public Art. Street Performers. It's all good. Mostly I want to see what your favorite park looks like from your artistic perspective. Look for cool angles, interesting shapes, and unusual sights. Show me what you see on your WALK IN THE PARK!

Extra Credit: Give me a little history of your favorite park. :) Just Google it and see what you come up with!

You have until next Sunday, at 9:00 PM ET to complete your photo assignment, post it to your blog, website or journal, and comeback here with the direct link. Remember, the link you leave must be a link back to the entry specific to this week's photo shoot assignment.

The Week In Review...

"In all matters of opinion, our adversaries are insane."

-Oscar Wilde

Which is Cheesier?

A plate of assorted cheeses and pecans?


Miss California, Carrie Prejean?

Ok, here's the thing. Everyone is entitled to live their life as they see fit. Just as everyone is entitled to their own opinion. We can all agree on those points... right? With that being said, I am having a great deal of difficulty understanding some opinions. Like the idea that marriage has to somehow be protected. I am in favor of marriage. Period. Man and a woman, woman and a woman, man and a man. Marriage is a lifelong commitment to the one you love. How is that a bad thing? To date, I have never heard a clear and concise explanation as to how Gay marriage endangers the institution of marriage, but I am open to opinions, so, if you feel differently then I do, feel free to leave your opinion in the comment thread, but be forewarned, messages of hate will be deleted, so be respectful of others. Fair enough?

Opinions, opinions. What do you think?
