Celebrating World Turtle Day with @asenseofhuber and #turtletuesday
May 23 marks World Turtle Day, an annual observance started in 2000 by the American Tortoise Rescue to bring attention to protecting turtles, tortoises and their environments. Los Angeles graphic designer Kyle Huber (@asenseofhuber) has been highlighting his own turtles in creative ways every week for the past three years through his #turtletuesday series. While Kyle’s day-to-day shots include drone-captured aerial videos of the California coast and vibrant, colorful photos that experiment with perspective, each week without fail there will be a cameo appearance by at least one of his seven red-eared sliders: Shelly, Myrtle, Franklin, Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo.
“I got my first baby turtle when I was 12 years old and have been obsessed with them ever since,” Kyle shares. “Coming up with a new and original turtle photo each week can be challenging, so occasionally I have to bring a couple with me on my adventures so I can photograph them in new places. So far, they’ve been all over LA and even road-tripped as far as San Francisco.”
