Each week, I will post a photograph as part of a challenge from the Daily Post – you are invited to participate. This week, the challenge is entitled, Earth.
Please show me your interpretation of the subject by adding a comment, with a link to your Website post, Facebook photo, Flickr image, etc.
For this week’s photo challenge, as we prepare to celebrate Earth Day on April 22, share an image that means “earth” to you — whether it’s a panorama of a landscape that takes your breath away, a close-up revealing a detail in nature, or another scene that honors the outdoors, we welcome your takes on the theme!
Earth Day is an annual event celebrated worldwide. Various events are held to demonstrate support for environmental protection. First celebrated in 1970, Earth Day events in more than 193 countries are now coordinated globally by the Earth Day Network.
The Bizarro World (also known as Htrae, which is “Earth” spelled backwards) is a fictional planet appearing in American comic books published by DC comics, introduced in the early 1960s.
On Htrae, society is ruled by the Bizarro Code which states:
Us do opposite of all Earthly things! Us hate beauty! Us love ugliness! Is big crime to make anything perfect on Bizarro World!
While the 1960 comic book was a work of fiction, it does appear that we are heading into our own bizarre world mimicking that of Htrae, where gorgeous scenes like that in my featured image (Crummock Water) will become irreparably damaged, due to the actions of mankind.
Why are we so backwards in protecting the environment? The never ending race for profit will ultimately lead to destruction.
- STOP doing the opposite of what we should be doing!
- FIX mother earth!
