On the first Earth Day I was working at a design office on 22nd Street in New York City near the intersection of Fifth Avenue and Broadway.  Watching from my 5th floor studio window,  I saw the first parade participants marching downtown.  I picked up my camera and ran outside.  Here are a few things that I saw.

I usually don’t shoot people but Earth Day was such important event,  I had to be part of it and that paid off.  My photo was published on the cover of the Italian design magazine, domus.

On Earth Day

Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.

– Albert Einstein

Here is your country. Cherish these natural wonders, cherish the natural resources, cherish the history and romance as a sacred heritage, for your children and your children’s children. Do not let selfish men or greedy interests skin your country of its beauty, its riches or its romance.

– Theodore Roosevelt

That’s the thing about Mother Nature, she really doesn’t care what economic bracket you’re in.

-Whoopi Goldberg

Keep close to Nature’s heart … and break clear away, once in a while, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.

– John Muir

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtfully committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.

– Margaret Mead
