i do most of my self portraits around noon or in the afternoons mainly cause the places i like shooting at has less people in it and i do love myself some empty corners. these are a few favorites from today. ✨
"There is everything to celebrate. Each moment is so immense, is so fantastic, each moment brings such an ecstasy…. But you are asleep. The ecstasy comes, hovers around you, and goes. The breeze comes, dances around you, and goes. And you remain asleep. The flowers bloom and the fragrance comes to you, but you are asleep. The divine goes on singing in a thousand and one ways; the divine dances around you; but you are asleep.
You ask me: "What is there to celebrate?" What isn't there to celebrate? Everything that one can imagine is there. Everything that one can desire is there.
It is more than you can imagine. It is in abundance. Life is a luxury!
Just think of a blind man. He has never seen a rose flower bloom. What has he missed? Do you know? Can't you feel any compassion for him that he has missed something, something divine? He has not seen a rainbow. He has not seen the sunrise or the sunset. He has not seen the green foliage of the trees. He has not seen color. How dull his consciousness is! And you have eyes and you say: "What is there to celebrate?" The rainbow is there, the sunset is there, the green trees are there, such a colorful existence…. Yet I understand. Your question is relevant. I understand that this question has some meaning.
The rainbow is there, the sunset is there, the ocean, the clouds, all are there – but you are asleep.
You have never looked at the rose flower. You have passed by, you have seen the rose flower – I am not saying you have not seen it, you have eyes so you see – but you have not looked at it. You have not meditated upon it; you have not given a single moment of your meditation to it. You have never been in tune with it. You have never been by the side of it, sitting close by, in communion. You have never said "Hello!" to it; you have never participated with it.
Life passes by; you are just there, not participating. You are not en rapport with life; that's why your question is meaningful. You have eyes and yet you don't see; you have ears yet you don't hear; you have a heart yet you don't love – you are fast asleep.
This has to be understood; that's why I go on repeating it again and again:”—Osho 😊💗🌈🐻🦄
Dao villagers work together to build a house in the mountains of Hà Giang. The eldest would dig clay from a nearby field and fill baskets fitted like backpacks so that the younger three could carry them to the construction site nearby. Clay houses in this region of Vietnam are very common, as the source material seems to be quite abundant in addition to acting as a natural temperature control - sealing the heat in the winter and cooling the house in the summer. I took a portrait of the child in the background of the first photo shortly after approaching the house, and though he wasn’t helping in any way I could see he was never far from my side as I took these photographs. Swipe to the end to see some of the house in progress.

It’s during the darkest night that the flame burns the brightest. In these dark, bewildering, upsetting times, we have to become a flame both for ourselves and others #resistfascism
“All that is great, all that is beautiful, all that is true and real, is always spontaneous. You cannot plan it. The moment you plan it, everything goes wrong. The moment planning enters, everything becomes unreal.
But this has happened to humanity. Your love, your sincerity, your truth, everything, has gone wrong because you have planned it, because you have been taught...”—Osho 😊🤭💗🌈🦄🐻
A little while ago I was lucky enough to go on a retreat with some beautiful beautiful women. We explored K'Gari (Fraser Island). What a magical place hey...

The magic that never ceases to amaze... how it grows and changes with each passing day, I find myself in sync with the river, changing and growing with each ebb and flow.... like the tides rising and falling: my breath finds its place here.
Originally brought to Iceland by the Vikings to help them navigate the unforgiving terrain ⚔️, the Icelandic Horse is pretty much the most majestic creature I’ve ever been face-to-face with (besides @reythegoldenpup). It was awesome to learn that they have a double coat for insulation in the harsh Icelandic weather and are the only horse that can naturally “tölt”, which is a gait providing riders an almost bounce-free ride, even at 20mph (they say you can drink a pint while riding, without spilling a drop!) Of the hundreds I met, each was spirited yet super friendly and gentle—and it goes without saying, they have the best hair in the animal kingdom.
