The Dream of life

One day you will wake up from the dream of life, 
and you'll feel happy and sad simultaneously; 
happy because finally discovered the essence, the presence in now moment, the consciousness of ephemerality; and sad for all the time you have lived attached to the illusion of permanence.

Above thoughts

"Did you leave your chair, and plunged into the landscape, hearing the sounds of nature? This means that, for a moment, you were above thoughts."

Searching for meaning
This photo was shot in Ferragudo, during a magical winter sunset. The shadows in the pontoon are people, spectra, during the long exposure. The result inspires me the notion of souls searching for meaning.

Mirrors of Illusion

Looking for what is beyond form and surface;
The voice that dwells in you likes to deceive you.

Hidden Worlds

In these empty worlds, our souls are filled. 
And there you are - trapped between mirrors, trying to loosen up.

Natural Disaster
"The man, as well as nature, can not control the impulse for destruction, although for different purposes. The nature renews, man aspires".
