Beautiful Earth thread


That is about an hour or so out of PDX


Looks like Multnomah Falls to me.


It is, and it is.


Crater Lake, From The Department Of Shiny Stones.




Neighbors found a living breathing Sand Dollar, I’ve seen gazillions of them, many with “feet” intact, but not a live one.


Sugarloaf, Rio de Janeiro


100 Year old Rhody, and the young lady who planted it.

I apologize, this pic was posted as though it was an Oregon Lake, but the more I looked at it just just didn’t look quite “right” several reverse image searches found a few copies of this pic, but none of them with any location info. so anyway, still a pretty pic. oh eya pt dose…how is that deer walking on yer water, unless it’s a rain deer, and I don’t see no rain!


Still a beautiful pic of earth, yoinked fer my screen saver


Besides, the look of the clouds, background mtns mid range whatever, and the colors, just seeming a bit “off” that Deer began to look more and moar like a very tasteful Origami Deer. Too linear, or angular, than r/l


Hmmm, or one of those Disneyesque montage figures that are basically tangrams. I see what you are driving at




Mrs Merganser and her Octoducklings.


Did their iceberg melt or something?:grin:

Nice shot.


14-year-old ballerinas pose in front of the Robert E. Lee monument ordered to be removed in Virginia.


My first reaction was borderline negative. I saw the ugliness of anguish, then I sat and stopped thinking and just starting seeing. I then found the beauty. It’s poignant actually.

Thanks for posting!


Me too, but the bright colors, those two beautiful young girls doing of all things a Ballet move, and the flashing of the classic black power salute on a Confederate Monument…then it really hit me, made me think of that Don Henley song ‘All she wants to do is dance’ (to me that’s a song about wanting to be free from your current hell)

Repost the shit out of it, I think it’s a powerful image. Fuck you Robert E. Lee you’re not my friend.


I’ve read a bit about Lee. I rather doubt he would approve of anything that’s been done in the South in the 150 years since his death, and if he were resurrected today I like to imagine he might likely vandalize some statuary his ownself.
