you to disappear, just see the positive things happening in your life!
This is a photo I took a few kilometers before I arrived to Santiago
de Compostela in Galicia, Spain (download for stronger colors).

These boots were left behind by an anonymous person... Lots of
random objects can be found along the Camino, this is mainly
because the pilgrims want to throw away their heavy belongings
so that they can walk faster... The person walking is a girl (not a
boy) with a huge pilgrim bag! "Cariño" in Spanish means "Darling"
in English. The above picture has been shot with the Samsung NX11,
provided by Samsung Electronics. Co., Ltd.

Along The Passion Way

A poem by Peter S. Quinn

Everybody is going somewhere,
With each night and day;
Futures are here and there,
Along the passion way.
Hearts are looking dangerous,
With their wings and fire;
Thoughts so often feverous,
In their searching desire.

Love will walk through alleys,
And twisted dreams in cities;
With all its many dillydallies,
And heat of the nights kitties.
Dreams must flicker and burn,
In ways of the pretty moonlight;
There is no way to return,
When love catches the ways of night.

Everybody searches the streets,
Trying with a plan to start;
Fragile and heavy bittersweets,
Messages to understand the heart.
With simple ways for a survival,
Though nothing can be controlled;
Planing schemes for each rival,
Tonight in the city shall unfold.

Doesn't mater who the foot belons to...
If the shoe doesn't fit, it doesn't fit.
Find a shoe that is more cofortable...

I use theese words metaphoric...

I really like your shot!

Very intense! The circular designs seem like bubbles -- combining the hard and rugged with the soft and light.
