Cosmic Sea Turtle by Gcrackle1 Cosmic Sea Turtle by Gcrackle1
Digital Painting done in Photoshop. Inspired by this poem:

The Dark Energy shaped the Cosmos
The Cosmos shaped the galaxies.
The Galaxy shaped the Sun.
The Sun shaped the Earth.
The Earth shaped the Sea.
The Sea shaped Life.
And Life shaped a million different animals, including turtles and us.


The turtle swims through the sea,
The Earth glides through space.
The turtle and the planet are one.
The planet and the Cosmos are one.
The Cosmos is inside us and we are inside it.
We carry the history of the Universe within us.
We are the eyes with which the Cosmos sees itself.

Wow I did this so long ago! I must've forgot to link it. I didn't I mean for you to feel like your stock photo was being devalued at all.

So yeah thank you for taking the photo! It is definitely totally awesome of you for taking it and posting it! Have a great day sir!

Thank you, I didn't want to make too big a deal out of it, and that's why I communicated with you directly. I provide stock for people to use, and you're still welcome to do so as long as you can credit me in the process.

I can recognize that turtle from anywhere because I took the original picture: [link] (not to mention the camera EXIF data posted here which matches mine exactly)

So yeah it would be nice if you could credit your sources in full, I don't really enjoy it when I discover these images by complete accident (in this case Pinterest), makes my stock contributions feel devalued.
