Weekly Photo Challenge: State of Mind

Galapagos Islands
Location: Galapagos Islands, Ecuador

I love taking pictures, but I don’t consider myself a pro. When I travel, I just bring along a pocket camera that won’t make me cry a river when it’s stolen.

But I’m proud to say I’m a little bit higher than a tourist who only takes pictures as proof that he’s been there. For one thing, I don’t take selfies. Hell no, you won’t find me on pictures that I post. It’s to save me from embarrassment. I don’t want Hollywood to come and not offer me a role opposite Emily Blunt (isn’t she lovely and her accent wonderful?) but as an extra in the Night of the Living Dead sequel.

In the company of tourists, I do take the time to breathe in the air and capture the moment as best as I could. I agree that sometimes a scene that we choose to take can have a bearing on what we feel deeply inside just like the above picture taken during a trip to the Galapagos. I hope you also enjoy the accompanying poem that I wrote afterwards.


whenever i don’t see you
i see what i can’t see
like the hands of this clock moving
and the day passing at sea

i see the waves turning black
and i can’t wait for morning
for without you, my dear one
the stars have lost their meaning

then the dawn starts breaking
and it doesn’t bring much delight
from where i stand, all i’d be seeing
is day blending into the night

whenever i don’t see you
i see a world fading fast and
no one else can bring its colors back
except you who claimed my heart
