"On the Importance of Worthy Role Models" (AKA "REAL MAN STUFF", PART ONE) Pea Island, NC. Wreck of the Belle of Miller Place, NY- she's been here since 2013 when the owner fell asleep while sailing- luckily no one was hurt. But had this happened right here in the late 1800's, Richard Etheridge & the men of the Pea Island Life Saving Station would have been there (the Life Saving Service was the precursor to our Coast Guard today). Etheridge was born a slave on the OBX, & fought in the Union Army during the Civil War, becoming one of the "Buffalo Soldiers." After the war, he returned home, & was appointed to run the Pea Island Life Saving Station- he was well known as one of the best watermen on the Outer Banks, but the white crew already in place refused to serve under him & deserted their posts. Someone even came back later & burned the station down, but Etheridge was not deterred. A strict disciplinarian, he trained an all-black crew (the only one in the service), & in the dark of the night DURING A HURRICANE on Oct. 11, 1896 they SWAM to the wreck of the E.S. Newman, attached a rope, & rescued all of her passengers. Conditions were too bad to take a boat out or fire a harpoon with a guideline attached, so swimming in the night was the only option the black surfmen had (I have surfed hurricane waves during the day that have had my heart in my throat- to do this at night was an INCREDIBLE feat of bravery.) No flashlights, no wetsuits, no radios for back up- just SKILL & GUTS. That's REAL MAN STUFF. There's a book about these men called "Fire on the Beach", & a documentary called "Rescue Men" (rent it on iTunes)- check it out. Feed your brain with knowledge of WORTHY role models, not reality tv/celebrity GARBAGE. #Leica #LeicaCamera #LeicaCameraUSA #LeicaM #LeicaMonochrom #Monochrom #Summilux21mm #🔴📷 #MyLeicaJourney #MKexplore #blackandwhite #bnw_planet #bnw_life #pocket_bnw #bnw_captures #noir_shots #RatsEyesPhotography #HoneTheAesthetic

Love - Hate.

On days I adore you, other days I want to bang your head on the wall (okay maybe not). However, I know I wouldn't have made it this far without you @eshaanroshan - You've been a constant pillar of strength and support, always lifting me up when I fall. I don't know if you remember this one particular night, but it's one of my favorite memories of us. Two years ago, while I was going through a really weirdly painful phase of my life, you came over to meet me, and we had company (a person that we didn't particularly like, good riddance) and so we couldn't talk much about what was going on, later on when I went to say good bye to you downstairs, we ended up sitting on the bonnet of your car and talking for almost an hour! Time somehow flew by, and we said things that stayed with me forever. That's one of my favorite memories of us... oh that, and that one #hesaidshesaid night when we role played with strangers! Lol. And like ten other memories. I know it's not your birthday (yet) but I'm going to miss you, BPP. 💛

🔴Última pata y la más importante, yo misma. Aunque reconozco que me di cuenta y empecé a trabajar en ello hace relativamente poco. Siempre me había llamado la atención la frase "Cuando tú cambias todo cambia". Desde que me conozco he querido cambiar cosas, pero no sabía por dónde empezar, así que probaba con el tono de pelo, el novio o la casa. Suerte que alguien me paró e invitó a mirar hacia adentro, a analizar, a preguntarme, a cuestionarme para aceptar, actuar, evolucionar y crecer. Porque he aprendido que primero soy yo, y no por egoísmo, sino por necesidad. Y por fin ha llegado la semana que llevaba meses esperando. Voy a tener la oportunidad de seguir mirando hacia adentro de la mano de un grande, del señor @tonyrobbins , en su programa Unleash The Power Within 🔥. Un evento de cuatro días para el que he ahorrado durante un año. Casi cincuenta horas de motivación para llevarte a tu máximo en todos los aspectos de la vida, donde el objetivo es aprender a convertir el miedo en poder, hasta el punto de ser capaz de andar por brasas descalzo. (No, no es una forma de hablar. Tengo que hacerme la pedicura). Y sí, voy sola, sola solita sola. De momento, ya no puedo ni dormir, pero estoy segura de que va a haber un antes y un después. La cosa promete. ¡Buenas noches! PD: Abuela, si lees esto no te preocupes que quizá me ponga calcetines cortafuegos.

Training supervisor #Poki the #cat, decided to check in on Olivers training and he gave high regards to his "place with distractions" assessment😸 #earsfordays #labradormix #mixedbreed #blackandwhite #dogtraining

Ir a destiempo es algo subjetivo. Quizás la nieve aquí no cuadra, pero sí allí. Quizás tu lugar te esté esperando, aunque ahora no te cuadre. Quizás se trata de ir avanzando, y llegar al lugar adecuado, como cuando, ese día, el de la foto, conduciendo por una autopista, tras adentrarme en un largo y oscuro tunel, de longitud desconocida, y cuesta arriba, al salir encontré algo bello. Todo estaba nevado, y ahí era algo normal, y eso era algo inimaginable antes del tunel.
