Everything is possible by Carlos Ocando

To me everything is possible, sometimes I feel closer to this notion than others. But today I really want to feel that my life is improving, that I can follow my heart and let everything be and support myself and the people that I love and care about. 

Today's photo expresses that feeling of power, hope and love.

Happy thoughts to you my friends,

USA LANDSCAPE PHOTOGRAPHER OF THE YEAR 2016 by Carlos Ocando

Hello, it's been a while since the last time I wrote something here. I've been full of work and other responsabilities.

Today I write this short post to let you know that I was shortlisted for the USA LANDSCAPE PHOTOGRAPHER OF THE YEAR 2016, with one of my favorite "Tree Portraits" from the body of work Komorebi. The image is called "Thank you / Perseverance" and it holds a very special place in my heart because I took it on my birthday in 2015. A magical fogy morning that I will never forget.

 
 

You and I by Carlos Ocando


The same history told over and over again
never tired of your beauty I grow
a message that resonates with my soul
you and I forever together and alone
eternal bliss I feel inside Gaia’s womb

My enemy and my friend
I fear you and love you
I destroy you and I create you

Dichotomy to the eye of the beholder
Happiness to the eye of the lover
Sadness to the eye of the scared
Perfection to the eye of the wise
What to do I don’t know

I let the perfection of this moment direct me
The wisdom of my instincts show me what my eyes cannot see,
my ears cannot hear, and my hands cannot touch…
Infinite light opening the path into my heart

Blackness and lightness combined…
I love me, I love you, I love us

Thank you by Carlos Ocando

Today I want to thank my parents for their support during all my life. They have supported me in my career change, giving me the emotional and material support to make this dream a reality. We spend many years of our life taking for granted the support from our family. Today I want you to know mom and dad that I love you very much, and that I appreciate all the unconditional support and love that you have given me all my life. You are the pillars that support everything that I am today.

Thank you.

A Perfect World 01 by Carlos Ocando

A Life with no History, Pain, Happiness or Sadness
A world full of life and no drama, infinite peace is the norm
Light shines in the morning, infinite rivers of water nurturing my core
My life has a beginning but no end, eternal existence is my friend
Where life is without death you may ask, without men it's a painless task
