1000littlewords A rather daring angle (I was about a shoe away from the edge of the cliff when I snapped this!) of the beautiful Bixby Bridge of Big Sur taken shortly before a huge blanket of fog curtailed what would most likely have been a spectacular sunset. The fog that followed covered the Central Coast of California and made its way inward towards Fresno and the surrounding farming towns near the Interstate 5 on the last weekend of April.

1000littlewords One great pleasure in life is embarking upon an adventure towards a magical place. The anticipation you feel just before your journey begins is perhaps as jolting as mainlining a dinosaur sized cup of espresso or black tea straight down your throat. As you inch closer to your happy place you are met with the nostalgic feeling of receiving a gift from your favorite Aunt or Uncle, giddy with excitement, eyes tearing away the wrapping which conceals your destination with a voracity not unlike that of a Tiger or Bear that hasn't eaten for weeks. And just when your heart has reached its peak moments of drumming, there it is. The Ocean, the Mountains, that Regal Skyline shining like a jewel amongst the bluest of backdrops. A smile drags undeniably wide across your face, and your arms open wide mouth goes agape, and....you get lost. So wonderfully lost. No ego, no fake enthusiasm, just..pure bliss. Like a child, like you once were and so desperately has searched to become again. Happy.

1000littlewords Throw a rock at a bridge and "It" makes a sound, "It" is no longer a bridge but an unconventional musical instrument, walk upon that said bridge and "It" becomes a road, take a photograph of this bridge and "It" becomes a trophy of sorts. These are all just sounds to describe what you use "It" for. And that is all "It" is.

1000littlewords I took a series of photos of this sick Macaque in Bali and this along with a previous image I posted were the two most powerful images which I think captured the sadness of the moment. I couldn't keep my eyes from shifting back and forth from this sick almost lifeless monkey and his lively counterparts just a few feet away. It was and is a good reminder that no thing lasts forever and forever changes, constantly. So enjoy the moment you are in pleasantly as much as possible because it is never coming back in the same exact sequence and that in itself is the beauty of life. The surprise of it all.

1000littlewords As a non coffee drinker, I am unaware of what constitutes a good cup of coffee, I would assume though that it would have a huge amount to do with how clean and undisturbed the environment is by humans and other invasive animals. That being said, you are looking at a picture of one of the worlds most expensive makes of coffee, "Kopi Luwak" made throughout parts of South East Asia, a specialty and some would say novel type of coffee available throughout parts of Indonesia. What makes the bean special is that it is consumed by the Civet Cat a small tree dwelling animal found throughout South East Asia. The Cat has special enzymes in its stomach that allows it to eat a coffee bean and poop it out whole, the bean is gathered along with its remnants of its other meals and is processed, the resulting coffee from this is said to be low in acid and have a very smooth taste which along with the unique story as to how it is made attributes to its outrageous price tag. Unfortunately as with any consumer item with unique craft and scarcity, it becomes over exploited due to consumer demand and the intense desire for people to profit quickly and largely from it. This comes with a negative effect as the Civet Cats numbers in the wild have decreased and the Cats are treated generally terrible by the farmers who take this animal out of its natural habit and cages it to force feed it beans that it has no control over selecting for itself.

  •   1000littlewords @dbrodi Thanks man, felt the need to shed some light on stuff like this, we continue to jack up our own ecosystems in the name of profiteering and in the end we all will lose including the person or people profiting from exploits like this. Granted the process of making this coffee in large quantities might not be the best example of an ecology f$ck up but on a larger scale you look at what's going on in the fishing industry, oil industry and livestock farming and it get really serious. 1mon

1000littlewords The beautiful Wat Arun looking stunning even during gloomy weather on the Thonburi bank of the Chao Phrya River in Bangkok, Thailand. Wat Arun is a Buddhist temple with a name derived from the Hindu Sun God "Aruna", Wat Arun is perhaps the most famous landmark in Bangkok and is certainly one of its most stunning to witness during the rising sun. The surface of the temple has a very distinct shine to it when the first rays of morning light kisses its facade. This happening has dubbed the temple the nickname of the "Temple Of The Dawn".
