Week 9 | 2012

They say that life comes at you with a hammer when you least expect it. Well, during this week I had such a day. Its quite incomprehensible when someone so very close to you gives you a blow you never expected with no mercy. I guess we only have to keep living and if we’re lucky we’ll experience just about all emotions, this is one, that no one needs to experience, there are better ways.


Lies & Betrayals

The word pain & suffering all of a sudden have a new meaning to me, coupled with the deep sorrow I feel every time I think about what happened. I guess I just don’t feel comfortable talking about it anymore, but I felt I needed to share a glimpse of this because after all this is a photojournal/diary of sorts and it has a direct effect on how I see things. To be honest, this week pictures were incredibly difficult to even make but I needed a respite in spite all of this turbulent time I’m crossing.

On a positive, Week 6 | 2012 got the privilege of being featured at WordPress.com Freshly Pressed site on February 27 and 28. Oh my, what a huge surprise it was to get all those email of folks starting to follow this blog. I won’t lie, it was kind off cool getting notice by the editors of WordPress.com because I’ve never blogged or shared with the intention of hitting that stratosphere. So with that said, Thank you WordPress.com and editors who were responsible for showcasing my photography & words to a worldwide audience.

So its not a coincidence I so needed some color in my life this week to cheer me up. Thanks for following this visual stream of consciousness and I leave you with this quote that came to me when I most needed it.

Romans 8:38-39

And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow–not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love.

  1. Last time I went into dark ages the world seems collapsing around me, there is no way we can forgive betray at least from the beginning, sometimes neither time could cure that wound. But as my father use to said “there is not bad that for good is coming”. Your images shows the profound and mystic wounds you are suffering, but you know light continues to be your best ally, it´s by your side and new days will come, i don´t say those days will be better, but at least there will be new ones.

    My friend let the light and your faith continue guiding your way. Thanks for trusting in us.

  2. This time the last two photos are my favorite. The third one is something special on its own. All together its again a nice compilation. Hope your getting over your bad mood.

      Thank you so much, its a process and I take it little by little. I appreciate your kind words. Its not a bad mood more like a bad situation which puts you on a different perspective. Cheers.

    Hope you’re trending upward. I absolutely loved the prism shot. Keep on…

  4. Drowning in your blues & getting lost in your trees never felt better, Jorge. What a blast this weeks provides words can’t hardly describe. It’s somewhere between a wild ride & the calmness of sitting in the front seat next to you while you feed my mind with nothing but great imagery & amazing stories. Just mindblowing!

    All the best & safe travels, Fritsch.

    • Jorge Ledesma says

      Fritsch, thanks for your words, incredible description, so insightful, I really appreciate you taking the time to comment, again thank you!

    Hi, Jorge.
    If these are the pictures you can produce in a bad moment, you have nothing to fear… Your creative spirit is intact.
    Love the first and the last, specially.
    All the best.

    • Jorge Ledesma says

      Thanks Antonio for your enchanting words, I always have my doubts about my creative work but I just try to do the best that I can. I create images as a sort of therapy and to disconnect for a few hours in the midst of “life”. thanks again, gracias.

  6. These unwanted scarves will provide you new insights for the better or worse. They will however extent your visual vocabulary and put your imagery on a new level.

    All the best and I will try to provide you something this weekend to cheer you up.

    • Jorge Ledesma says

      Thanks Wouter, wise words indeed. Thanks I look forward to that something.

  7. Wow- your photos are stunning. And I just wanted to agree on a very positive way with what you’ve said about how you see things can be affected by how you feel or how you’re affected by your circumstances and surroundings. I obviously don’t know you at all and I am thankful to wordpress freshly pressed as well as that’s how I found you. I just wanted to say that it’s sometimes in these places that God can do the most in your life, I don’t know what’s going on but I posted last night about psalm30:11 about mourning to dancing- and it opened my eyes at least… I pray you keep using how you feel and gaining all you can from it while remembering deep down who are really are and holding onto the things inside you know to true 🙂

      Amanda, thanks your illuminating comment. Not only it was thoughtful but very inspirational as well. Thanks for finding, I really appreciate your readership. I’ve learned that God doesn’t abandon his children and only through his will do things happen. I am faithful that better days will come and he’s already showing signs. Thank you again [will hop over to your site in a few minutes]

    • Jorge Ledesma says

      Thanks January, I appreciate it. I had another similar shot and ended going for this as I thought it displayed my mood better.
