Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Week 1 Photo: Green

This week’s Fun Foto Challenge included a whole list of words from which to choose and of them all, “green” was the word that spoke to me. Off to Google Photos I went to put their AI to work for me (It’s a big help with going through thousands of photos dating back up to 20 years). As I did it, I noticed that among a whole bunch of photos of trees, mountains, and grass was something else: Advice and wholesome messages. Here, is all I found:

Near where we used to live was a small street where residents set up a number of art installations including this blackboard. While childish people would sometimes draw offensive things, mostly there were messages like this.

Another blackboard in another part of the city.

[Be a force for…]

Sounds like a good plan…

You do know this about yourself, yes?

I saw this message near a school in Mumbai. You’ve got enough time.

A simple and important message…

This bridge is right next door to our apartment building. Like any high bridge, it can be a destination for people committing suicide. I love that someone tried to do a little something.

Wait, you don’t think little things matter? You bet they do. Check out this story from several years back:

A man with five guns and more than 6,000 rounds of ammunition set himself up beside a Beaches water plant yesterday planning to commit mass homicide. But a dog’s affection apparently persuaded him not to go through with his plan.

The man started to ready his weapons in the early afternoon sunshine outside the grounds of the R.C. Harris filtration plant at Victoria Park Avenue and Queen Street. He later told police that he planned to shoot people in the park and then drive around the city killing whomever he could to ensure he would get life in jail.

“It’s scary how close it could have been,” Toronto Police Detective Nick Ashley said last night. “We have a dog to thank somewhere.”

[…]

He changed his mind when a dog on a walk in the park would not leave him alone.

“He happens to be a pet lover, and he decided that if there was such a nice dog in the area the people were too nice and he wasn’t going to carry out his plan,” Det. Ashley said.
