Throughout the entire Cholon district in Ho Chi Minh City the smell of incense is felt. Pagoda's like this one, or temples, are in every street and the smoke lead us to a temporary reality where we are out of our comfort. The traditions are impressive, so much so, we could stay an entire day looking at it with mesmerized eyes and minds full of stories.
I gave up the questions and absorbed every gesture around us....and the incense as well !

Em 2015 o artista foi para a ilha grega de Lesbos, que era uma das principais entradas para a União Europeia. Lá ele testemunhou os barcos de refugiados chegando à costa depois de uma perigosa viagem marítima, e ele foi estimulado a se envolver nessa questão humanitária, produzindo um documentário e criando obras de arte.
No pátio interno está o protótipo da obra “Lei da Viagem” feita em PVC reforçado, que é um barco inflável com figuras humanas, inclusive crianças, em alusão aos refugiados que buscam segurança e oportunidade na Europa.
This is a set of photos has grown on me infinitely since the day they were captured. I went to Copenhagen with the weather forecast having predicted snow, and was so ready to watch the city turn into a winter wonderland. To no one's surprise except my own, what came down from the clouds came in the form of cold rain. At the time I was so disappointed, cold, and wet that I didn't realize what I was experiencing. Luckily I kept my camera out and kept shooting through the rain and today I realized that what I had seen was the true spirit of Copenhagen. People went on with their afternoon, pushing through rain and cold weather in their long black coats and leather gloves, black umbrellas in hand. Pedestrians and bicyclists in high spirits flooded the street and the city came to life even as the rain poured on and the light faded.
Here is another from Monet’s water lily garden. His gardener used this canoe daily to clean the water lilies of dust and made sure the alkaline levels are correct for this garden. I really enjoyed Monet The Late Years at de Young Museum. During his late years Monet struggled with his second wife + eldest son passing away, WWI, and the lost of his vision. Be sure to go check it out for yourselves.
But why do you travel?
°To challenge yourself.
°Because life is too short.
°To know myself.
°To not look back and wonder - What if?
Church of the Mission of St. Mary the Virgin
In 1907, three years after Father and Mrs. John A. Staunton started the new station of the Episcopal Church in Sagada, Mountain Province, this church was built using lumber produced at the newly installed sawmill in Fidelisan. Originally cogon-thatched, the church and the bell tower were shingled in August 1909. A much larger cathedral-like stone church built a decade later replaced this wood and shingle structure.
