I don't know exactly who started the Photo A Day May Challenge, but here's where I got the challenge list that most people use: Photo A Day Challenge List

Have fun!

Skyline

There used to be a grassy median in the middle of this road. Some “brilliant” person decided to kill everything that was green and considered nature to add more useless road where we really didn’t need it. The person that suggested this should be buried somewhere along that long-ass turning lane.

Why such a long turning lane? I have no idea. I’ve seen people use it as a passing lane and just as a regular lane. Hey, they just left that gas station and their next turn is about a mile away so why not stay in that nice comfy lane! It’s safe to do that. Right?

I am not a big fan of change and I’m pretty sure the birds, bees, flowers, and trees that used to grow within the forest of cars didn’t appreciate being relocated. Well, I romanticize here, but I’m sure their new home was a landfill somewhere.

.::I use this space to shake my fist at those making decisions like this::.


We need nature

We need green

We need fresh air

A place to preen!


We need the flowers

We need the trees

We need the birds

A sweet-scented breeze!


Keep your concrete

Keep your painted line

Keep your changes

And we’ll be just fine!

      dslrtipsandtricks, this is just a no-frills Kodak digital camera, and an old one at that! I enhanced with Photobucket's editing tools. I'm simple like that!

      Thanks for the comment!

      Not all change is bad for instance having electricity in our homes is a good change. Still doesn't mean we have to pave and concrete everything under the sun just because we can. People need to start thinking of quality of life which has to include a place for plants and animals of all kinds and sizes.

      Beautiful photo! I agree that we do need nature. I think that we need nature more than some want to admit. It perk is that nature is beautiful to look at. I hate how my town keeps cutting down old, beautiful trees for more buildings that we don't need. Any way, I love your writing its awesome! Keep up the good work.

      Nice photo. It is a shame when nature gets destroyed to add "more convenience" to our lives. Personally I'd like a bit more scenery!

      Shared, up and awesome.
