Really lovely! Is green, clean and perfect!
Thank you, Eva!
This is so very cool!
A little Photoshop fun… thank you!
I’m glad you think so, thank you, Rabirius.
Very nice… We can only hope that those in power will do what is needed to preserve it.
Thank you, Nick. Yes, it would be nice to think that the people who make decisions that impact the environment consider things carefully. It seems often that is not the case, though.
What a pretty image !
I like the small sailing ship !
Much thanks, Yoshizen!
How lovely..feels like fragile wonder, for holding gently..just love those fish swimming!
“A fragile wonder for holding gently”… that’s a beautiful description of the earth, Cath. xx
Lovely. I am afraid that I am too pessimistic. It seems every time we make some headway, those moneyed interests who choose to despoil the environment for short term profit eventually undo the good and travel even farther in the wrong direction.
Thank you, Steve. I share some of that pessimism but I know there are many people working for the good of the environment too. We sure take a long time to figure things out, though, and often it’s too late.
This is soooo good, Karen! You can share this and other pictures on an exhibition. People need to see it, and maybe you will? Love it! 🙂
Hi Gro! I’m glad you enjoy it, thank you. 🙂 Yes, I really should work on getting an exhibition going!
Wow! Good :-)) I push you with love. ❤ Have a lucky day 🙂 🙂
What a delicate and lovely image, Karen. A perfect tribute to World Environment Day.
Thank you, George, that’s kind!
Delightful. Subtle interiors and a charming sailboat…
Thank, Kat! It was fun to create.
Thank you for your kind words. I have to tell you that I relish your posts, especially important to me when I was pregnant and under the weather. They are nourishing in their poetics. Thank you.
I truly appreciate your comment, Summerlee. To nourish another person is an amazing thing. As you know, with a wee one! xx
Clever 🙂 and beautiful.
Thank you, Trish! 🙂
Oh, like a beautiful marble… Perfect for the day, my dear Karen! 🙂
I’ve always loved marbles for some reason. They do make one think of little worlds! Thanks for your comment, Marina.
I agree! Me too! I’ve even kept my childhood marbles! 🙂
Absolutely marvellous Karen.. clapping my hands with joy !! OU are so very clever.. How did I miss that this was World Environment day! Shame on me!
🙂 Ha, ha, thank you, Helen! I’m happy to inspire joy. I think each day should be environment day, always considering our impact…
there is far too much carelessness happening here…
Couldn’t agree more with your sentiment !
Crossing my fingers for the world’s environment, so much consernes, but your sweet photo reminds us about all the magic that is still there and here.
You are right, Bente, there is a lot to be concerned about. But still incredible beauty to appreciate….
Wow brilliant idea and image Karen, perfect for world environment day, absolutely love it
Oh, I’m glad you like it, Mike, thank you! It would fit nicely on a CD… 😉
If that’s an offer Karen I may well take you up on that. I’ll be needing an album cover next year….
Perfect idea for this day and a lovely image.
Thank you, Lee!
Green and luminous. Hopeful and beautiful. Thank you Karen.
Much thanks, Elena. I’d like a marble just like this to fit in my palm. One of the larger sized ones. I had to look up what those are called: semi-bowlers, in Australia anyway!
Interesting and beautiful photo. The tiny sailing ship is a nice touch. 🙂
Such a magical image! I want to be on that boat.
When I was young, the most popular travel guide was “Lonely Planet”… It doesn’t feel lonely anymore – sometimes claustrophobic, but never lonely 🙂
The one planet the Little Prince must have missed… Very interesting image!
Beautiful Karen – and I love the idea of it being a marble!
Love it. Wonderful soft quality about it.
Fragile, jewel-like and beautiful, just like the real thing.
So where is Texas on your globe? I hope it’s not out of sight on the far side.
Karen, this is stunning and oh so very beautiful ! 🙂
Fantastic and beautiful images, Karen, for “This Little, Shared Planet”.
This is gorgeous … a wonderful orb of all sorts of nature’s beauty!
Fabulous, I love these Karen!
Absolutely stunning image and the microcosm concept is so clever!
Oh my God! I want to be you!! I love your images, such talent!
Did you do these? Yes, I can see from the comments it is your loveliness again! They are so beautiful Karen! How utterly lovely! 🙂
What fabulous images—you’ve created jewels! 😀
Nice . . . hopefully the comment will post.
Still nice even if it does not post.
