This week's challenge selection is e pluribus unum by Christine. Check out my pals for their interpretations on this theme: Fishing Guy, Katney, Imac, Lew, and Christine Anne.
The Seal of the United States of America includes the Latin phrase e pluribus unum. That means, "out of many, one." It may also be translated, "One from many." My first thought for the theme would be a macro of the phrase as it appears on our smallest coin. On the dime, it is a little more than a centimeter across. One of my favorite things in life is a healthy lawn. That one lawn is actually made up, not just of many blades, but also out of many individual plants that are groomed to look like one unit. A lush, green carpet of bare-footin' goodness! (The rainbow in the header was real. What a bonus!)
|It's impossible for me to read this tiny Latin phrase on a dime without help.|
|Out of many drops, one rain.|
|Out of many tissue papers, one flower.|
|Out of many seeds, one overgrown lawn.|
|Out of many bricks, one wall.|
