ellie_ocean I sometimes like to imagine ET life coming to earth and the first thing they stumble upon is surfing. They continue observing the planet and try to make sense of this weird phenomenon. 3d

ellie_ocean In this instant, the village sang a hymn composed by the flux of life on those winding dirt roads; it glanced through the windows of the brightly painted buildings; it felt a light rain; it saw the most extravagant palace up the hill; and then it glanced past the matured boy showering outside in the middle of the street; it gazed at the hundreds of goats being herded by an elderly women; it grew strength and wisdom from the oldest and largest trees one may ever seen; it raced with the children down the street triumphantly holding their home made cricket gear. And the song, it echoed in time with her- perhaps looking to the future, or the past, or simply here. 3w

ellie_ocean Reflecting instead of studying? Even though I may not get to take any photojournalism classes at my current university, I'm glad that what I'm learning in school helps better my understanding and connection to the places and people I meet behind the lens. I'm pretty excited for the future. A lot of people have asked about what I am even studying right now at a marine science school. After saving a lot of money and knocking out my basics in my amazing hometown, I've been able to apply and get accepted into transfer programs to study photojournalism and international relations. I'm pretty thankful and in awe of the support and love from everyone as we all work to make a positive impact on this planet. @natgeoindia #natgeostudentexpeditions 4w

ellie_ocean "We are, I am, you are
by cowardice or courage
the one who find our way
back to this scene
carrying a knife, a camera
a book of myths
in which
our names do not appear."
