n 2008, fresh out of high school, Karla Read picked up a hobby that would ultimately change the course of her life. After seeing a friend’s blog, she was not just inspired to create one of her own, she decided that she would make her own portfolio. One thing led to another and she ended up moving from Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic to Buenos Aires, Argentina so that she could pursue her passion. She rigorously studied photography and, ultimately, was able to make a career out of it.Her beautiful photography carries a sense of nostalgia, and tells stories about a woman’s longing to be different, young and free. “I’m mostly inspired by the things I want to be. Things I miss - my childhood and feelings. You see, I’m a really introverted person…so photography, it’s like the other me, if that makes any sense. It helps me balance things out,”

“The Little Boy and the Old Man

Said the little boy, “Sometimes I drop my spoon.”
Said the old man, “I do that too.”
The little boy whispered, “I wet my pants.”
I do that too,” laughed the little old man.
Said the little boy, “I often cry.”
The old man nodded, “So do I.”
But worst of all,” said the boy, “it seems
Grown-ups don’t pay attention to me.”
And he felt the warmth of a wrinkled old hand.
I know what you mean,” said the little old man.”

“Fascination with horses predated every other single thing I knew. Before I was a mother, before I was a writer, before I knew the facts of life, before I was a schoolgirl, before I learned to read, I wanted a horse.”― Jane Smiley, A Year at the Races: Reflections on Horses, Humans, Love, Money, and Luck

“A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.” ― Albert Einstein

Confessions from his Little One:
Bondage is not about restraint but about choices. It is the choice of one upholding their loyalty, their love, their heart and about sacrificing and giving their everything to the one that owns them. And in return they are revered, protected and adored by their Master.

“We all do things we desperately wish we could undo. Those regrets just become part of who we are, along with everything else. To spend time trying to change that, well, it’s like chasing clouds.”

“Eventually something you love is going to be taken away. And then you will fall to the floor crying. And then, however much later, it is finally happening to you: you’re falling to the floor crying thinking, “I am falling to the floor crying,” but there’s an element of the ridiculous to it — you knew it would happen and, even worse, while you’re on the floor crying you look at the place where the wall meets the floor and you realize you didn’t paint it very well.”

Once you familiarize yourself with the chains of bondage, you prepare your own limbs to wear them. — Abraham Lincoln

A skull formed by seven nude women is an optical illusion by Salvador Dali, who first made a gouache painting of it—titled “In Voluptas Mors,” translating to a desirable death. In 1951, he adapted the work to a live photo shoot with Latvia photographer Philippe Halsman, as shown in the pictures below.

This visual has maintained popularity throughout the years—it has beentattooed on people’s bodies, printed on t-shirts, and artists have re-created it for film posters and magazine covers.

“What is that feeling when you’re driving away from people and they recede on the plain till you see their specks dispersing? - it’s the too-huge world vaulting us, and it’s good-bye. But we lean forward to the next crazy venture beneath the skies.”
