Dreamland Bali Beach by Erwin HendrawijayaDreamland Bali Beach, Indonesia 2007

On today's Watery Wednesday, I would like to share a photo taken by my dear friend Erwin Hendrawijaya (We go way back into our senior high school years). He was so kind to give me permission for uploading it on my blog. I have added little effects using Picasa to bring out the colors of the already beautiful photo. Thank you, Erwin! (We go way back into our senior high school years)

There is a reason behind my photo choice here. I wanted to highlight again about Earth Hour on this upcoming Saturday, March 28, 2009 at 8:30 pm, local time. Please, click the link for further information about this important event to raise awareness towards the need to take action on climate change. The huge umbrella symbol of protection for mother earth while the clean and serene blue ocean her pure beauty without human interference. There is enough damage we have caused so far, let's take a hold and make it stop! in the background displays appeared to me as

Be part of the Earth Hour - tell your friends, tell your story.
Make a difference!

Watery Wednesday

Thanks to T. Bruce.
