salopalo I stand conflicted. I am a benign force and yet I find myself here, about to climb these steps into darkness. Were it now within my power alone, I would step back, and settle into a life of good, of known quantities. But I feel about to succumb to this alluring, addictive maze. I am a captive. I have come to know my limitations. I hope I last long enough but not reach the outer edges of excess. I know not what Is my mission or what will quench my curiosity. I put myself into the wind of destiny. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• | #applifam02may | Original shot by @jvdt for @applifam | •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #exclusive_shots #ig_mood #ig_all_americas #allnatureshots #igmasters #ig_costarica #jaw_dropping_shots #ig_underground #igrecommend #worldcaptures #ig_countryside #photowall #fx_hdr #artsyheaven #stackablesapp #procamapp #tagdistrict #soul_saves #shotzdelight #instaGhesboro #ig_sharepoint #artofvisuals #fotonline_es #loves_united_team #prestige_pics_ #heavenly_shotz #world_lenz #meistershots #epic_captures 6h

salopalo As in a faded dream I come to you
To make you see if not agree
To hold still a memory
Simply a feather in a day

Like a sketch I appear unfinished
Let your eye not settle easy
Behold the didactic, tense color
A word left unsaid

Imploding from visible distress
Not a plea; it's my awkwardness
But see, the visage isn't the thing
Just helps hide a linear living

To another, suffused in mystery
Accepts the incongruence
For I am not masking
Just holding still in thought •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• | This is for @fx_hdr Weekend Fix | #fx_hdr #fx_we_fix167 | Original photo by @nina_dee_dee_fx | #WHPdaydream | •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #exclusive_shots #instaGhesboro #ig_all_americas #allnatureshots #igmasters #mextures #jaw_dropping_shots #ig_underground #igrecommend #worldcaptures #love #mexturesdelight #photowall #artsyheaven #stackablesapp #procamapp #shotzdelight #mexturescollective #ig_sharepoint #m3xtures #fotonline_es #loves_united_team #prestige_pics_ #heavenly_shotz #world_lenz #meistershots #mexturesdelight #sharing_is_caring CODE NUWSTZP

salopalo I dream with clouds
From there I swing
I like to think
I make it rain
I summon snow

I dream in lines
It is easier
Much neater
It is what keeps
My story sane

I dream with pleasantries
I say hello to the wind
I feel the embrace of the sun
These simple things
Just feed my soul •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #WHPdaydream •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #exclusive_shots #ig_mood #agameoftones #allnatureshots #igmasters #ig_costarica #jaw_dropping_shots #ig_underground #igrecommend #worldcaptures #ig_brilliant #ig_countryside #photowall #fx_hdr #artsyheaven #moodygrams #procamapp #soul_saves #shotzdelight #instaGhesboro #ig_sharepoint #artofvisuals #fotonline_es #loves_united_team #prestige_pics_ #heavenly_shotz #world_lenz #meistershots #epic_captures

salopalo I laugh at my own incongruence. I did not have presets at birth, but face them daily, everywhere. I harbor no ideations of liberty or even happiness. I have always just wanted to be. Well meaning may you be, but a look, a sneer, an observation aside, to the wind, to friends, to your own conscience -- all or any is misplaced. Why must I fit into to your world. Why must I make sense to you. I harbor no rigidity. My constitution, I like to think, is still simple. I may not understand you, what makes you fully tick. It is not for me to place you, give you a label, hang your name or visage in my convoluted, spiritual closets. I can decide that your world and mine are simply fit to coexist. I can then smile freely, to the wind...for you and I. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Concoction for #WHPdaydream

salopalo "Pap, pap, pap" goes the sound with half his smile -- playful banter, a calling perhaps, in approximation of my name. There is a sense of joy and calm in the look of expectation. This is amid a few steps this way, that way. The lips of my child...my children... I have come to believe, construct an acoustic symphony. A halo is truly born where he now walks. It is also recognized by my beloved, even at a distance, who is -- as I -- in total delight with that little smile, look and those progressing, living footsteps. ( Anyway, Lucas needs a name for his little brother... ) •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #exclusive_shots #ig_mood #jj_editors #allnatureshots #igmasters #instagram #jaw_dropping_shots #ig_underground #igrecommend #worldcaptures #ig_brilliant #ig_countryside #photowall #fx_hdr #artsyheaven #stackablesapp #procamapp #tagdistrict #soul_saves #shotzdelight #instaGhesboro #ig_sharepoint #artofvisuals #fotonline_es #loves_united_team #prestige_pics_ #heavenly_shotz #world_lenz #meistershots #epic_captures 5d

salopalo How is it that we came to end up this way. You are now to me a soul oblivious to your past. Outside my thoughts I never acted to seize a second or steal a moment from your life. I was always waiting, looking out for the stunning sunrise in your smile. I betrayed my thoughts. I conformed to the gentle, proper side of me. Our dynamic never, never fully coincided in the crossings I remember. I should have helped to answer simple questions in mid stream. I should have stopped and kissed you in your coyness. I think of you. I fancy you part of my days. It is an easy exercise of the mind. I sigh and believe in dreams. I believe in magestic dreams. I go to sleep that way. There is no time to bargain in my dreams. ****************************************************** | This is for the @ig_underground challenge #igug_108 #igug_cs | great Original photo by @_paintedzebra | #mextures #mexturescollective #sharing_is_caring Code CISCEXP | ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #sweet #swag #love #loveit #tequiero #amor #linda #beautiful #awesome #greatfeeds #ohyeah #yolo #simplicity #beauty #incredible #super #eutequero #saudade #webstapick #instagram #jj #epic #instagram #special 5d

salopalo It is a recurring dream or nightmare, to think that with human eyes we can appropriately perceive the universe, the world, existence. We see destruction, despair, want, hunger and continually, naturally ask why. We question our faith, our beliefs, the idea of our creator. But understanding incongruence and suffering through our unsophisticated instrument, our ken, would not rid us of despair. A desired world, full of balance, peace, health, protection, could itself become a nightmare, a sugary eternity. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••m•••••••••••••• | Another collaboration mwith my friend, @__northstar__ | #mextures #sharing_is_caring Code HEKQGZS |

About your straight-forward travels
Have you gone far
Did you search enough
Found the things you set to find

Never embellished your path
The details you well know

Ever listen, mom
To your own voice
Perhaps too busy making plans
Just converse with the wind

salopalo I am running on instinct
To things that return me to sanity
I am often, mostly giggly
But we all have our lil walls

There is no destination
The search acts as an end
I will tire out, I surely will
And conjure a smile
My body is in elevation
But not in an exalted state
I will soon give in
That my soul may breathe again

Where are you, friend
In movement or static
In thoughts we are as electricity
With no one to surpass ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• | #applifam18apr | A blend of my shot and the OP by @jvdt for @applifam with jolly manipulations in between | #ig_mood #ig_all_americas #allnatureshots #igmasters #ig_costarica #jaw_dropping_shots #ig_underground #igrecommend #worldcaptures #photocandyapp #ig_countryside #photowall #fx_hdr #artsyheaven #stackablesapp #procamapp #tagdistrict #soul_saves #shotzdelight #instaGhesboro #ig_sharepoint #artofvisuals #fotonline_es #loves_united_team #prestige_pics_ #heavenly_shotz #world_lenz #meistershots #epic_captures

salopalo I see mirrors in the walls, reflecting people I am, or used to be. I keep singing along, making believe it's just a world of make-believe. I turn and think to perform, so as to shed the increasing weight off my heavy shoulders. I focus not on the reflections because I think they somehow always call out my name. I like to think I am carefree. I do feel at ease when people say kind things, although I think it's because of what I do and not what they see of me. I wish I could just learn to see what virtues exist in me. I would readily discard these formulas, contexts, stereotypes and ideals. I would perhaps genuflect to the reflections in the walls. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #mextures #mexturesdelight #ig_all_americas #sharing_is_caring #igmasters #mexturescollective #jaw_dropping_shots #ig_underground #igrecommend #worldcaptures #jj_mextures #ig_countryside #photowall #fx_hdr #artsyheaven #stackablesapp #procamapp #tagdistrict #soul_saves #shotzdelight #instaGhesboro #ig_sharepoint #artofvisuals #fotonline_es #loves_united_team #prestige_pics_ #heavenly_shotz #world_lenz #meistershots #epic_captures CODE DBQWQMX 2w

salopalo And yet another great OP by @sage_jonesy for the @mexturescollective round of editing | #mextures #mexturescollective | Code QTQQMRY #sharing_is_caring | The dude, btw, is a recurring personage from my shot |
Here I am, standing once more, waiting for you, for my life to begin again. The melody in my head says no one can surpass you, in thought, in flesh. I am here, as I will always be, seeking a part of your existence, a sliver of your spirit, a glimpse of your concern. I have come a bit formal today, despite the weather, because your presence inspires in me a crazy, disheveled passion. I am perhaps out of context. I am a million and one things, for you. And so I remain, singing all kinds of words, seeking a balance with life's elements. I stand, ready to sing a sweet song out of tune or to whisper a melody which will make you appear, as we discussed a while ago. I have time. I have a lifetime for you. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

salopalo | Running with Epicycles | ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• I am slick, debonair, and ever so digitized. I think I may even be able to control the weather. But I think, and think and come to reminisce. The sounds of perfection still come from a Stradivarius. I may do my best to come close, to come within a respectable reach. But in the end I feel as if my efforts often miss a beat, are sometimes devoid of that pristine, living thing. I have, as the crowd, fallen into an epicycle. I look at you, Old Man, for that simple logic. I see your footprints in the snow. I see the gleaming smile in all your work. I stand here stupefied. I salute your eternal smile. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #exclusive_shots #instaGhesboro #ig_all_americas #allnatureshots #igmasters #ig_costarica #jaw_dropping_shots #ig_underground #igrecommend #worldcaptures #photocandyapp #ig_countryside #photowall #fx_hdr #artsyheaven #stackablesapp #procamapp #tagdistrict #soul_saves #shotzdelight #alifeofadventure #ig_sharepoint #artofvisuals #fotonline_es #loves_united_team #prestige_pics_ #heavenly_shotz #world_lenz #meistershots #rsa_graphics 3w

salopalo | Another great OP by @sage_jonesy for the latest @mexturescollective round of editing | #mextures #mexturescollective | Code ZMZIQRG #sharing_is_caring | •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• It is here, near the water, that souls dwell. We all return, you see, to make peace with ourselves. We come back, almost seemingly by happenstance, to learn about our nature. We often come in jovial spirits driven by frolic, but we digress and draw plenty more from the well of the sea. It is a battle, it is a roar, it is a journey unperceived. It is a rising that ensues. The sand lulls our senses. The water recaptures us, for all time. We belong to it, and there we find the only permanent, mysterious peace. We needn't acknowledge it; indeed we often sigh and embrace the epic winds, as if they were stark separate from our evolution. We go to sleep in the midst. We are the children of the water. We remain under its spell, for all time. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #exclusive_shots #ig_mood #ig_all_americas #allnatureshots #igmasters #ig_costarica #jaw_dropping_shots #ig_underground #igrecommend #worldcaptures #ig_countryside #photowall #fx_hdr #artsyheaven #stackablesapp #procamapp #soul_saves #shotzdelight #alifeofadventure #ig_sharepoint #artofvisuals #fotonline_es #loves_united_team #prestige_pics_ #heavenly_shotz #world_lenz #epic_captures 3w

salopalo Looking out into the distance, I can fathom a world, a moment, a number of flashes with your name, with the warmth and health of your smile. Standing here, contemplating the nature of the world, the very fabric of thoughts, my longing, my expanding feelings, all become so silly and petty when I close my eyes and think of you. You are a memory, you are mist. And yet, you envelop my thinking and define the very thought of being well. I have not lived long, or exceedingly well. But in you I found all there is to define a life, a successful search, for I cared not beyond the perimeters of your gaze and smile. And now, wherever you are, my vision and perception is still affected by the idea that you slipped away with the key to the thing I manage to call my daily life. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• | As promised, the bnw version of my post for #applifam08apr | OP by @jvdt for @applifam | My dude in the middle, and my written humble words above 🏻 | Happy Friday, mah peeps! ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #the_bestbw #ig_shotz_bw #bnw_demand #bnw_diamond #princely_bw #bnwhisperers #bnw_planet #bnw_madrid #bnw_sniper #scandinavia_bw #rsa_bnw #edits_bnw #superstarz_bw #bnw_rose #unopix_bnw #bestphotogram_bnw #igworldclub_bnw #bwstyles_gf #master_pics_bnw #Swagtodays_bnw #ir_bnw #pasandha__bw #bwsquare #bnwsouls #bw_divine 3w

salopalo Walking wolf

I am the wolf. I am the wolf. I am walking. I am talking. I am talking to myself. Pardon me if I do not stop to say hello, to acknowledge your meaningful presence. Excuse me as I rush....as I rush...to simply find myself. I am a man, I am an entity. Perhaps I am in delusion, and neither makes me plebian...crowns me king. Does it all matter. A life I have spent, in this body, in this shell. What does it mean, what does it matter. When you have to walk the walk and soon render talk to the most High, well...excuse the hurry, forgive my disheveling, focus on my few memorable flashes. I am in a rush, I am in a hurry. I am totally flustered, I want to turn back time, to get it right. At once, though.....I am tired. I am more than whole. God has made me. God has allowed me. God may yet free the parts of me. I release myself, and I release my anger. I will no longer hear. I will no longer see. I am a wolf. A simple walking being. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• | #applifam08apr | OP by @jvdt for @applifam | The dude is from my shot | Writing, like always, mine. | I will have to post this bnw- style as well | ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #friendsineditroom #ig_mood #ig_all_americas #allnatureshots #igmasters #ig_costarica #jaw_dropping_shots #ig_underground #fabskyshots #worldcaptures #jj_forum_1527 #ig_countryside #photowall #fx_hdr #artsyheaven #phototag_it #photomafia #soul_saves #shotzdelight #alifeofadventure #its_wow #artofvisuals #fotonline_es #loves_united_team #prestige_pics_ #heavenly_shotz #world_lenz #meistershots #jj_forum_1537
