Colored leaves against the moss covered tree…
I love the reds, but there are so many other colors here, these next two are like impressionist paintings…
I love the yellow too. These photos were taken on a hazy day, but against a bright blue sky, the foliage is even more awe striking…
This is actually an unused paved road, with a blanket of leaves…
A hiking trail, I love hiking in Autumn…
Simon Workmann, 12 years old. This post he compares the similarities between two different images. The amazing thing is that not only does he have an intriguing perspective, but all the photographs are his own.
Hallo bloggers! In miene 20 days here (already) I have seen some bloggers do marathons of certain subjects that Sie are fond of. If du know this blog, you’ll know that I’m very fond of photography. So Ich decided das Ich would make my first marathon about photography. In this first post I took two photographs of completely different subjects und compared them to show their similarities.
The light reflecting off the lense of the camera A rock stuck in the ice in the pond by my house
A terrifying wolf spider A neat tree by my house
A neat orange flower F I R E ! ! !
My cats eye An owl butterfly wing
Raccoon tracks by the pond What happens when I let my cat go near a painting
A bird in the trees A turtle on a log
It’s a bird?! It’s…

Ok Simon at http://simonworkmann.wordpress.com suggested that I draw a picture about what best describes my blog, and he was kind enough to offer to reblog it once I post it. If you haven’t gone to his blog yet, you should have a look. He’s a Renaissance Man at age 12 and that’s no joke. He has an amazing blog, which is monitored by his parents, so it’s safe to comment, like, and follow. Anyway, the below photo is what I chose to draw as a metaphor of how I feel about my blog. The picture depicts me camping. When I go camping, I’m often breathless by the beauty around me. I feel the deepest sense of peace. I feel healthy emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually. I feel alive and inspired. I have moments of solitude and introspection. I have other moments that I share with good people. These are the reasons why I have chosen this image as a metaphor for what I think most describes my blog and my blogging experience.
Thanks Simon for motivating me to draw this picture!
I’m not much of a cynic, but examine this beautiful river:
A little closer you will see:
Maybe this came from upstream, regardless, it’s a travesty.
Or maybe it was the same person who tossed this bottle cap and put out this butt alongside this river:
Or who scattered trash along the roadside or on the paths of amazing forests, rivers, and mountains. I think I’d prefer to believe it was one person, and that not so many people can be so callous.
Maybe it was the asshole, or asshole’s kid who stuck this wad of gum on a scenic wall in the blazing heat so it could stick to my ass when I sat on it for a photo op:
No matter what, please don’t trash our Earth. I intended to take photos of beauty and nature in order to post, but instead I was continuously horrified and distracted by the effects of what slobs people can be. I apologize because I think this is probably my most cynical post, but if someone can’t take their trash with them, or wrap a piece of gum in some paper until they find a trash barrel, that is laziness at it’s purest. Laziness.
If your house is just as disgusting as how you treat this Earth, then I guess you never learned responsibility or a sense of respect. Wildlife lives in this nature, this is their home, and as humans we have the privilege to enjoy it uninvited. The person who lives off the land and doesn’t contribute to the destruction of the Earth can argue his/her own case. Everyone else, please take your trash with you and dispose of it properly. Otherwise, you are making this world unhealthy for the animals and for those who care.
Sorry for my rant, but that gum ruined a good pair of jeans, which is the least of the destruction all this litter has caused.
Thanks for coming by ;)
Got this video via email from someone. It’s awesome, and the song is perfect, but I love The Killers anyway. And for those who don’t appreciate dance, you might after this compilation.
