The vinaigrette and its flowers

Source: own
Yes, I know, it's the second time I've taken a flower from the vinaigrette, but it's just that I couldn't resist taking pictures of these simple, but at the same time, beautiful flowers.

Moreover, like the theatre, each photograph is different, it is never the same, because, simply, each moment is different, because everything changes in the next instant.

You take a picture now and you take a picture the next second and you already have another picture. Maybe you don't perceive it with the naked eye, but something has changed, like the light, because the sun is no longer in the same place, the passage of a cloud that makes a semi-transparent screen, the flight of a bird, in short, that the world we know changes with each step we take.

That's why I took the photograph because the set, light, colors and flowers, seemed to me worthy of immortalizing it, with which I didn't think much about it.

¿Qué he visto en Netflix? Segunda temporada de Suburra


Fuente

OPINIÓN

Ayer terminé de ver la segunda temporada de Suburra y tengo que decir que me gustó bastante, no más que la primera temporada, pero estuvo a la altura, manteniendo la tensión dramática sin desviarse con subtramas inútiles que no llevan a ningún sitio.
Aunque a mitad de la temporada, sobre el episodio cuarto, la serie entra en una especie de ralentización de la acción, como si quisiera coger un poco de resuello y seguir con el ritmo que llevaba desde el capítulo uno.
Lo importante, en mi opinión, es que la serie sigue manteniendo el interés en cómo los tres amigos, Aureliano, Spadino y Lele, intentan convertirse en los nuevos reyes mafiosos de Roma, con una acción directa y sin los líos que nos alejan de la trama principal.
Espero que la tercera temporada, que en el capítulo octavo nos dieron un adelanto de cómo iba ser, sea igual o más interesante que esta.

Impossible circuit

Source: own
I have already commented on other occasions, that the creators have a different vision of the world from the rest of mortals and I do not say it to presume, but to verify a fact. What for you may be something insignificant, for me has an artistic value that I will be able to use at any moment.
You can walk around the city and only see people and cars, but the creators see many more things, the insignificant detail, the small plant that makes its way through a crack in the asphalt, the butterfly that rests on your hat, the rest of an old man in front of the sea, the cat sleeping on a roof, the dove that sleeps on the sand on the beach, the traces of the seagulls in the solidified cement, the shoe lost after a night of partying, and so on.
I ask you a question, would you have photographed this impossible circuit? Maybe yes or maybe no. I stopped and did it. I took out my mobile phone, put it in landscape mode and took the picture.
Why did I do it? Because it seemed to me, in my opinion, that the image had an artistic value, that its apparent chaos of straight lines and curves, had a logical code given to it by the driver of the truck that cleaned the beach of Las Canteras first thing in the morning.

Come closer

Source: own

Come over here without me noticing,
with the stealth of a panther,
and devour me until there's nothing left of me,
neither the bones nor the breath of the past.

Approach me without giving me explanations,
without asking the permission of the gods,
break the silence with your screams
and lie down next to me and sleep,
following the path of water.

Approach from the bent infinity,
from incomprehension and unconsciousness,
talk to me even if I don't understand you, 
give me your words and I'll turn them towards the universe.

Come closer and give me your warm hands,
cover me with the light of your suns 
illuminate my cave soul and
give me a second of light for my eternity.

Come closer, sit next to me, breathe with me,
feel the flow of our consciences,
close your active eyes and let yourself be carried away
to the beyond where today it's just you and me

Carricoches de cojinetes


Fuente
Hace ya mucho tiempo. Sí, estábamos a las puertas de la pre-adolescencia y las gentes de los barrios periféricos teníamos que buscarnos la vida para divertirnos, porque nuestros juguetes eran escasos y teníamos que tirar de imaginación para construirlos.
Uno de esos juguetes eran los carricoches de cojinetes, que construíamos con una madera que encontrábamos en la basura. La madera no tenía que ser muy grande, pero sí con el largo y ancho suficiente para que pudiésemos estar sentados de forma cómoda.

Fuente
Luego había que buscar los cojinetes (las ruedas de nuestro carricoche) y para ello nos recorríamos todos los talleres de mecánica de Escaleritas y Schamann, que casi siempre tenían alguno que ya no les era útil y nos lo regalaban.

Fuente
Después buscábamos los listones para encajar los cojinetes, para hacer las ruedas de atrás y las de delante, que incluía la dirección asistida (por una cuerda), buscando que quedaran bien anclados al tablero, porque alguna vez salían volando cuando alcanzábamos la velocidad de crucero y terminábamos rodando por el suelo.

Fuente
Otros eran más atrevidos y hacían un super carricoche y sin pensarlo mucho, cogían una puerta vieja, le colocaban las maderas con los cojinetes y a volar con ella.
Y no faltaban las competiciones que realizábamos en cualquier carretera del barrio, que tuviera el suficiente desnivel para salir disparados hacia abajo en busca de la máxima velocidad y de la máxima felicidad.
Así pasábamos nuestra infancia y sí, lo pasábamos de maravilla.

What have I seen on Netflix? Colony, first season

OPINION
I like science fiction films and series as long as they are well made and their plot is plausible. This is the case of the Colony series which has enough wickers to keep you sitting in front of the television with expectation.
The main plot is simple and that everyone understands and is none other than to survive in a land colonized by an extraterrestrial civilization that uses humans themselves to control their fellow humans.
I like that the main plot is that, the main plot, and that the subplots, which have them, do not overlap the plot that gives body to the series, because sometimes the subplots end up ruining the series, as for example, Travellers.
You have to bear in mind that Colony has a very slow start, so much so that I was about to leave it. However, in the second chapter he begins to warm up engines and put you in situation, until he ended up hooking me, not only for having an attractive argument, but the actors are at a good level.

In short, it is an interesting series, with the right ingredients to spend the nights enjoying a science fiction cinema of a certain quality.
