meliromero ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿฝ Dawn is hardly breaking,
Morning light is trickling through,
The dark and dirty windowpanes,
Of this home you once knew.
.

My fingers tremble,
Moving the cloth aside,
It feels softer than your cold heart,
Looks less sheer than you do from the outside. .

The Queen Anne's Lace greets me,
With her delicate, creamy flower,
A crimson strip on the horizon,
Kissing the land with life's power. .

My heart sighs with heavy breath,
And my morning coffee tastes bitter,
I cross the room to sit in your chair,
No other place seems fitter. .

Day quickly turns to night,
You still have not come home,
I stay sitting in the armchair's embrace,
Wondering: "Darling, where is it that you roam?" .

"The Paradoxical Commandments:
People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered.
Love them anyway.
If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.
Do good anyway.
If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies.
Succeed anyway.
The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.
Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.
Be honest and frank anyway.
The biggest men and women with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds.
Think big anyway.
People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs.
Fight for a few underdogs anyway.
What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.
Build anyway.
People really need help but may attack you if you do help them.
Help people anyway.

  •   meliromero @burk219 I will have to look at those models. The card is called "Eyefi by Mobi" and i purchased it at Best Buy. 1w
  •   burk219 This sx60 has most of the same features as Canon t6s but no removable lens. It does have macro and huge zoom equivalent to 1360 mm zoom as well as WiFi. Great for exploring..not real great for shots needing full frame. 1w
  •   meliromero @burk219 I actually understood most of that! I'm proud of myself because two weeks ago it would have been all Greek to me 1w

TIMING IS EVERYTHING
๏ธ๏ธ๏ธ
"Break 'em off somethin'
Just wakin up in the mornin gotta thank God
I don't know but today seems kinda odd
No barkin from the dog, no smog
And momma cooked a breakfast with no hog (damn)
I got my grub on, but didn't pig out
Finally got a call from a girl I wanna dig out
(Whassup?) Hooked it up for later as I hit the do'
Thinkin will I live, another twenty-fo'
I gotta go cause I got me a drop top
And if I hit the switch, I can make the ass drop
Had to stop, at a red light
Lookin in my mirror and not a jacker in sight
And everything is alright
I got a beep from Kim, and she can f*ck all night
Called up the homies and I'm askin y'all
Which park, are y'all playin basketball?
Get me on the court and I'm trouble
Last week f*cked around and got a triple double
Freakin niggaz everyway like M.J.
I can't believe, today was a good day (shi!t!)
Drove to the pad and hit the showers
Didn't even get no static from the cowards
Cause just yesterday them fools tried to blast me
Saw the police and they rolled right past me
No flexin, didn't even look in a nigga's direction
as I ran the intersection
Went to $hort Dog's house, they was watchin Yo! MTV Raps
What's the haps on the craps?
Shake 'em up, shake 'em up, shake 'em up, shake 'em
Roll 'em in a circle of niggaz and watch me break 'em
with the seven, seven-eleven, seven-eleven
Seven even back do' Lil' Joe
I picked up the cash flow
Then we played bones, and I'm yellin domino
Plus nobody I know got killed in South Central L.A.
Today was a good day (sh!t!)
Left my nigga's house paid (what)
Picked up a girl been tryin to f*ck since the 12th grade
It's ironic, I had the brew she had the chronic
The Lakers beat the Supersonics
I felt on the big fat fanny
Pulled out the jammy, and killed the punanny
And my d!ck runs deep, so deep
So deep put her ass to sleep
Woke her up around one
She didn't hesitate, to call Ice Cube the top gun
Drove her to the pad and I'm coastin
Took another sip of the potion hit the three-wheel motion
I was glad everything had worked out"
~Ice Cube

#REFLECTIONSINGRIME i was tagged by my amazingly talented friend Pam @bokeh1302 Who was also tagged by other talented ladies that are friends of mine to post a dirty television set. The ones that I find I'm not as interesting as the ones they have but this is one of my recent finds. I nominate friends @kristin_raysak and @aurora613 to show me theirs (no pressure, only if you want)

MY DEBUT: this is my first edited photo from my brand-new camera. I used light room all on my own this evening. I am grateful to my dear friend Glen @drummerg3 who has the patience of a Saint and spent nearly all day Monday helping me figure out how to email images to myself and David @tek_nic_kul for all of his technical support and generosity with which this would not be possible.

  •   sik4eros @meliromero tripod is mainly for long exposures. Stabilization does quite a good job in most cases. I use to do PS in some pics. but now i try to stay with just the reg ig tools. 2w
  •   meliromero @sik4eros well I will still have things mixed up here until the shots that I have on my iPhone that I love are gone as well. Hopefully this is just a transition. Between the two 2w

So I was driving along and I see a couple of guys working on the railroad. Anybody who knows me, knows I am a sucker for tracks, trains, boxcars. So i pull over, hop out and the following exchange takes place: .
ME: "Hihihi guys! Do you mind if i snap a few pics of you while you work?"
.
MEN AT WORK: "We were just going to take a little break"
.
ME: "Awwww come on, you would make this girl really happy!" ๐Ÿผ * Did i just say that?!? * i surprise even myself sometimes
.
MEN AT WORK: "Ok...you convinced us." ๐Ÿป๐Ÿป .
I snap a few under the boring sky...
.
ME: "Thank you so much guys!" ๐Ÿผ
.
MEN AT WORK: "Wait! What do we get?" ๐Ÿผ
.
ME: "I'll make you famous on Instagram!"
.
They smirk and shake their heads as i pull away waving. ๐Ÿผ

So I have had a wild 3 days here on a Detroit exploring marathon. This is a crappy cell phone shot with probably a crappy edit to disguise my mess... See, we spent a lot of time where the sun doesn't shine, not the best for cell phone shots...but here is the good news: I GOT A CAMERA (Canon Rebel T5i) ๏ธ FINALLY ๏ธ and i am super happy! These guys are so talented and they showed me how to use my camera. Each one of them had some tips and tricks for me as a beginner but I have not been able to get any of those shots off the camera and onto the computer for editing yet so we will just have to wait for the big reveal. Resting a bit bc it is always nice to stay at the YMCA with these 4 FUNGIS (FUN GUYS ๐Ÿผ @drummerg3 @red72rs @menacing_shotz and @cadillac_flatts ...3 being dedicated Detectives at my Bureau @grime_scene_investigators ) I think i hit about 15 spots altogether with them and only ended up with a few cuts, scratches, bruises and bumps. Check out their feeds in the next few days to see what they post because we have a lot to show you! My favorite shot from these days is on my camera, so is soon as this technophobe gets her shizzz together i'm hoping you will see more quality from me thanks for your support!
