Andaba buscando un simulacro, cuando lo escuché cantando, “ está vida loca loca loca, con su loca realidad ” mientras caminaba decididamente en mi dirección. Salió de las jardineras de Bellas Artes y me saludó. -¡buenos días caballero! Me dijo, con acento caribeño. -es buen día porque salió el sol, le respondí. -eso es irrelevante, todos somos luz y oscuridad, la luz que necesitas para tener un buen día no viene del sol, viene de tu interior.
Tras un silencio me dijo: Traigo un tesoro y lo quiero compartir contigo, acto seguido me mostró una docena de libros, clásicos griegos, Bequer, Victor Hugo, Ruben Dario entre otros y justo me decidí por el ultimo. -Ve a la página two twentione! Me dijo.
Y en cuanto llegué al número señalado comenzó a recitar al tiempo que yo leía en mi mente:
Juventud, divino tesoro, ¡Ya te vas para no volver!
Cuando quiero llorar, no lloro…
Y a veces lloro sin querer. 😓Joaquín es exiliado cubano y encuentra la libertad en los libros y en las calles, si un día se acerca y te ofrece su tesoro, deja que te lo comparta.
Μια φορά κι έναν καιρό, ήταν ένα κορίτσι που περιπλανιόταν άσκοπα κάθε που έπεφτε το βράδυ στην αυλή του αρχοντικού της... #photostories

I want a tattoo! Been thinking of it for years. Want words and a great script to be part of it. Don't want colorful. Do you think this one down her spine was painful to get? I didn't ask her at the workshop, and now I wish I did!
We only had about 36 hours in the mountains the other weekend and I managed to take over 600 pictures. Of the 600, I maybe have 30 photos I am truly proud of. I feel like other photographers understand🙋🏼📸The struggle is real😩. .
Throughout the weekend I used rocks and logs as tripods, I laid on the ground to get a good shot, I even got on my husband’s shoulders for a better angle @blowingrocknc . All weekend, I tried hard to get the best shots. And then... there’s this photo. No tripod. No composition. No plan. Just me, sticking my hand out the car window as we are whizzing down the windy roads of the #blueridgeparkway . It turned out to be one (out of 600 🤣) of my favorites. I call it “Goodbye Barn.” This photo is my reminder that, if we’re always too busy trying to get the perfect shot, we might not take chances and miss out the ones that present themselves to us! .
A 44 years old woman being examined by a Spanish doctor, in one of the villages of Siem Reap, Cambodia Friday 13th October 2017.
Wong has not been able to sleep for several days, her eyes have turned yellow and white. She has had six blood transfusion so far. Unable to afford further transfusions, tests and treatment, her husband has agreed with the bank to take out the value of their house to go and further seek treatment in Thailand. As Cambodia has an extreme lack of adequate medical support and care, the couple do not have any other choice. The diagnosis from the volunteering doctor visiting with the NGOs " Un Geste Pour Tous" et "Coeur et Act" would potentially be Leukemia. He gave the middle age woman one hundred euros in cash to go and receive further analysis within the next few days before his departure.
So, I want to learn to make these. Anyone with advice? My first batch tasted fantastic, but lacked in some of the aesthetic virtues. These are from @thegildedworkshop and the vendors involved included @madampaloozaemporium @asweetpear (ring), @soireedesign_and_events (florals), and @lauramariescakes
Arang Kale, Azad Jammu and Kashmir
M. Akber, my friend from Arang Kale was busy in shearing this time when I photographed him. It was July 2013 when i met him first time in his famous beautiful village on my first travel to Kasmir. The village had few wooden hutts comprising of two or three rest houses, a mosque, primary school and the only shop of M.Akber. This was considered as a Super Store of the village as one can find every household necessity in Akber shop ranging from food items to the nylon shoes and makep kits. Akber told all the stories associated with village he knew and we bacame friends. We exchanged our contacts and promised to stay intouch with eachother through letters. Unfortunately we did not write to eachother till now and we met again. He was busy in shearing with his wife and his shop was sold to someone I will write in my next story. Now he owns a herd of sheep and a nice rest house and his earnings have a significant boom with wool sale and rest house business.The village has expanded to more population due to notable increase in tourism to Kashmir. This time we left eachother with a new promise to write again.

We were too young to talk about forever but we know its not something that we can let go so easily.
Everything comes with a cost and we were pretty ready to face all the outcomes but we have to act maturely to prove our " BEING IN LOVE FOREVER " Thing trustfull so we skipped talking.
Have you guyz ever feel that sore throat when something hurt you deeply and you cant even cry about it??
Yes exactly same i use to feel all day long thinking about never going to talk with him .
We were so habitual of each other that everything that passes by needed to share. We were bestfriends for each other. You know u can stay away with a bf but not bff.
We tried staying away but we couldnt.
One fine day we decided to make it up again and decided to do every possible thing that would lead to re unite us because it was pretty clear WE CANT STAY AWAY EVEN FOR A SECOND.
We started making our best version to each others family .
This 5 year relationship groomed both of us into what we are today and still we are growing daily and guess whats the best part?? We are growing TOGETHER .
Yess finally after few years of struggle , our families agreed to us and we got engaged after 5 years of complete roller coaster of many beautifull events in 2017 .
To all those who are tired of listening being too young for a relationship , to all the teenage love stories . Hey please dont give up !! If you can imagine your future without them , leave it now. If u cant. Never leave . Never .
