WHEN WE ARE | Come graze with us on this silky autumn air, feed off its slowly cooling warmth, sinking late tonight with all the colors making out. Now that the night drips into the valley, it flushes shivering chills and atomic pulp down the marrow, beautifully, and we slingshot our dreams into the firmament to never land, and we, too, never land while a flock of feelings soars deep inside our selves. We鈥檙e nimble, lean but full with a full filling of passion for passion. Drowsy drifters slashing their own sails, we wake up to a dream life, the world our living room, an entire universe for a ceiling, our jest fest uninterrupted on this phantom stage. When we are, everything is. ___ catch another glimpse: milesastray.com/photos-glimpses ___ photos | glimpses ___ #sacromonte #albaycin #albaicin #Granada #spain #europe #sunset #sofa #couch #outdoorlivingroom #hippie #society #panorama #nature #street #urban #people #world #photography #writing #photoprose #photopoetry #photojournalism #candid #travelphotography #authentic #travel #authentictravel #philosophy #milesastray

MONSTER IN THE WEST | Daggers for teeth, we eat their jungles, feast on ill-gotten shiny minerals we can鈥檛 digest, starve them with our greed. We harness their kids to propel a petty consumption that consumes the planet, scorching the straws they clutch at, flooding the hopes they sow. And when their land is raped and their life scarred, once their only survival is being repotted without roots, we shut our eyes and hearts and doors. We are the monster in the west. ___ catch another glimpse: milesastray.com/photos-glimpses ___ photos | glimpses ___ #kitende #uganda #africa #poverty #inequality #injustice #capitalism #consumption #disparity #western #immigration #society #kid #mother #street #urban #people #world #photography #writing #photoprose #photopoetry #photojournalism #candid #travelphotography #authentic #travel #authentictravel #philosophy #milesastray

FOOD FOR THOUGHT | Austerity is a narrow gateway. Most material possessions are too bulky to fit through. The flood of overindulgence is too wide to pass it whole. Merely a humble iota of societal diversions makes it to the other side and accompanies the Buddhist monk on his path to raw consciousness and spiritual enlightenment. Only after shaving off all distractions delivered by the senses, the innermost mind is sharpened into necessary focus for the journey toward awareness. But concentration can only voyage as long as the belly is fed. The blossoming mind can鈥檛 escape its organic roots. And so the monk鈥檚 quest is nourished by the alms giving lay people, who in return feed off good Karma and the Buddhist teachings. A mutual exchange of food for thought. ___ catch another glimpse: milesastray.com/photos-glimpses ___ photos | glimpses ___ #luangprabang #laos #southeastasia #asia #austerity #monk #alms #almsgiving #temple #ceremony #karma #religion #buddhism #buddhist #street #urban #people #world #photography #writing #photoprose #photopoetry #photojournalism #candid #travelphotography #authentic #travel #authentictravel #philosophy #milesastray

DESTINATION(LESS) | To be a place, a place just needs to be. To be a destination, a place needs to be more. Furthermore, it seems to be commonly agreed upon that a place can only become a destination, when said more is commonly agreed upon. Moreover, the more agree, the more a place becomes more. Yet, sometimes less is more, no? Unless what matters to you matters less to you than what matters to most, what鈥檚 just a place for them, might be just the place for you; a place to many, but a destination to one beholder鈥檚 eye, previously hidden on a map we never laid eyes on. Looking at this nameless house in Quito, Ecuador, I see an extraordinary architectural character and beauty on par with any glorified Manhattan landmark. Destinationless wandering made me find what I didn鈥檛 look for. ___ catch another glimpse: milesastray.com/photos-glimpses ___ photos | glimpses ___ #quito #ecuador #southamerica #latinamerica #House #brittle #architecture #landmark #destination #destinationless #traveldestinations #places #street #urban #blackandwhite #b/w #b&w #world #photography #writing #photoprose #photopoetry #photojournalism #candid #travelphotography #authentic #travel #authentictravel #philosophy #milesastray

FROM A TO B | To those born into the lush maze that is the Okavango Delta, navigating the myriad waterways on a Mokoro must come as naturally as walking. Propelled by pushing a pole into the muddy ground beneath the shallow waters, the slender canoe glides stealthily through the marshland, where Hippo encounters are to be avoided at all costs. While in many parts of the world the only remnants of such traditions are lackluster tourism interpretations, the Mokoro is a standard way of transporting goods and getting from A to B until today. ___ catch another glimpse: milesastray.com/photos-glimpses ___ photos | glimpses ___ #okavangodelta #maun #botswana #africa #mokoro #wetland #swamp #marshland #lush #canoe #Transportation #culture #tradition #waterway #nature #landscape #people #world #photography #writing #photoprose #photopoetry #photojournalism #candid #travelphotography #authentic #travel #authentictravel #philosophy #milesastray

PUDDLE POOL | Accommodated by the darkest hour of a forgiving late summer night, sheltered from embarrassment by the invisible back alley, encouraged by his bittersweet intoxication to hand over the reins to all inhibitions, guided by solitude to unlearn society鈥檚 teachings, he bathed and swum in the shallow puddle pool. Nothing was sad about this, or tragic, or fucked up. Just a human, at one with the elements around him, feeling the electrostatic air and the cooling water on, in, and beneath his skin, riding the crest until the comedown. ___ catch another glimpse: milesastray.com/photos-glimpses ___ photos | glimpses ___ #downtown #montreal #Canada #northamerica #puddle #night #swim #bathe #dark #afterdark #nightshot #society #inhibition #Intoxication #street #urban #people #world #photography #writing #photoprose #photopoetry #photojournalism #candid #travelphotography #authentic #travel #authentictravel #philosophy #milesastray

TALL TALES OF HAVANA | It's one of these tales that people tell in the streets of Havana: no building in the old town Habana Vieja must look down onto El Capitolio, the former seat of the government, and so it still stands out as the area's highest landmark.
