There is a creation legend, I believe in the Iriquois mythology that involves the earth being carried on the back of a sea turtle. There may be other cultures involving a turtle carrying the world on its back, but I am not familiar with them. But I do like the imagery that the idea presents, so when I found a turtle shaped planter, I bought it for my back yard and put a big green mirror ball in it. This is my ode to the giant sea turtle of creation who supports the planet earth. This picture was taken with my 10.2 mp Kodak SLR digital camera and processed in PhotoShop, using a free earth image from the NASA site to blend into the mirror ball.
