No surprise at all. The Jelly Fish exhibit in Monterey, as this video shows, is both beautiful and relaxing. Slow down for a bit and let it bring some peace into your life.
Powerful work, both the photography and the writing. A person could spend hours here, learning and thinking.
What a job! Overwhelming and yet so rewarding - great photos.
Very cool, but alas, no baseball till spring.
"Gritty" may be an understatement, but great photographs. Love the colors.
There are so many things to respond to here. The NFL has long wrapped itself in the American flag yet blithely violates one of the rules for its display by holding it horizontally in every stadium on opening day. But that is another issue.
The basic questions seem to be: Is there racial injustice in America? Is there racially motivated police brutality in America? Do black athletes have the right to protest? Do young men who make millions of dollars by "playing a game" have the right to protest? The answer to all of these should be, "Yes".
Is taking a knee during the playing of the National Anthem showing disrespect for the flag and the country? The answer probably depends on what you believe America and the flag should represent and whether it actually does.
Are there other platforms that the protests could take? Sure. Would they be as visible and get the same amount of attention? I doubt it. Would they upset as many people as they have? Probably not. Would they achieve anything meaningful? Who knows?
Perhaps football players, football fans and all the rest of Americans should be asking the real questions that spurred the protests in the first place. Maybe then America can get on with playing a game.
Love the colors.
Nicely done. It arouses my curiosity about many questions.
