"Photographer Stephen Wilkes crafts stunning compositions of landscapes as they transition from day to night, exploring the space-time continuum within a two-dimensional still photograph." 
Source: "Stephen Wilkes: The passing of time, caught in a single photo; Filmed February 2016 at TED2016". 
*excerpts:
"Photography can be described as the recording of a single moment frozen within a fraction of time. Each moment or photograph represents a tangible piece of our memories as time passes.  But what if you could capture more than one moment in a photograph? What if a photograph could actually collapse time, compressing the best moments of the day and the night seamlessly into one single image? (...) Day to Night is about all the things, it's like a compilation of all the things I love about the medium of photography. It's about landscape, it's about street photography, it's about color, it's about architecture, perspective, scale -- and, especially, history."
"The act of sharing has suddenly become more important than the experience itself. (Applause)"

"As technology evolves along with photography, photographs will not only communicate a deeper meaning of time and memory, but they will compose a new narrative of untold stories, creating a timeless window into our world." *excerpts. Click to see more on video. 
A social poem. "A poem about saying yes | IN-Q | at TEDxHollywood"(*click to watch the video below)
"This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. In this opening talk, IN-Q takes the audience on an introductory journey through his own poetic expression combining the old with the new." *
Excerpts from the poem: 
"(...)Let's meet up in between, said the the ocean to shore." 
" Do you laugh on instinct or do you choose to laugh?
Do you ask because you care or do you merely ask?
 I ask you this because I care about how humans act. 
We're animals, aware of our future and our past 
and this could be an obstacle to travelling our path.
 Instead of just accepting where we are at,
 we analyze out tracks for what we could've had,
 looking back, focused on the memories,
 instead of the facts, hance what we attract. 
But it's hard the fact that when we're fast,
 it really flashes past. 
It's an exponential graph from creation into ash. 
I'm sentimental one minute, them I'm making plans(...)
 Philosophize,
 'cause no one has your awesome eyes.
 Your view is worth the lows and highs,
 as we go through on the coastal rides. 
Control has got us holding on, when letting go could be more fun. (...)"

"Write it on your heart
that every day is the best day in the year.
He is rich who owns the day, and no one owns the day
who allows it to be invaded with fret and anxiety.
Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could.
Some blunders and absurdities, no doubt crept in.
Forget them as soon as you can, tomorrow is a new day;
begin it well and serenely, with too high a spirit
to be cumbered with your old nonsense.
This new day is too dear,
with its hopes and invitations,
to waste a moment on the yesterdays.*"

By Ralph Waldo Emerson in "Collected Poems and Translations".

Happiness starts with yourself.

Be joyful, amazing and never give up to smile! 
Stunning things are all over! 

Stay positive, today, tomorrow and always! 

Rămâi pozitiv, astăzi, mâine și întotdeauna!
So, very thankful, each and every day, to be inspired...

One picture or more. From time to time (14) "Reverie; as a paraphrase in lyrics." Autumn in November.

😻No more... pictures... I'll run from here!! Meow!

Ca urmare,
Uneori, mă trezesc visând.
Visând, mă trezesc uneori.
N-am noroc - îmi spun, surâzând,
Surâzând, îmi spun: n-am noroc.

Tainic e visul ivit fără rost,
pierdut printre alte atâtea ce au fost.
Parafrazez cu tot ceea ce a mai fost,
Căutând un sens evident sau un rost.

Ca urmare,
Uneori, mă trezesc meditând.
Meditând, mă trezesc uneori.
Ai noroc, îmi spun, deci, trăiesc.
Trăiesc, îmi spun; deci, am noroc!
"Ca o parafrază în versuri; reveria."

"As a result, Sometimes I wake up dreaming. Dreaming, I wake up sometimes. I'm not lucky - I said myself and I'm smiling, Smiling, I said I'm not lucky.  The hidden dream, pointless emerged lost among others, among many that they were. I paraphrase with everything that it was before, and I'm seeking for an obvious sense or meaning.  As a result, Sometimes I wake up meditating. Meditating, I wake up sometimes. You're lucky, I mean, so, I live. I live, I tell myself; So I'm lucky!"  "Reverie; as a paraphrase in lyrics." nb. In an imperfect english translation of the lyrics.

In memoriam: 
The unforgettable Freddie Mercury;

R.I.P. 5 September, 1946 - 24 November, 1991
"Delilah" is a song by British rock band Queen. Written and sung by Freddie Mercury, it was originally released on their fourteenth studio album Innuendo in 1991.
Delilah is a song Mercury penned for his favourite female tortoiseshell cat, which was called Delilah. It was one of the first completed tracks on the album. Brian May recorded his solo using a talk box. It was written in the key of G Major. Reportedly, Roger Taylor was not fond of the song and agreed to let it be included in the album only at Mercury's insistence." *click to read more info about Delilah on Wikipedia.

About  quotation: "Dubito, ergo cogito, ergo sum"...
Excerpts from Wikipedia : 
"Cogito ergo sum[a] is a Latin philosophical proposition by René Descartes usually translated into English as "I think, therefore I am". The phrase originally appeared in French as "je pense, donc je suis" in his Discourse on the Method, so as to reach a wider audience than Latin would have allowed. It appeared in Latin in his later Principles of Philosophy. As Descartes explained, "[W]e cannot doubt of our existence while we doubt … ." A fuller form, dubito, ergo cogito, ergo sum ("I doubt, therefore I think, therefore I am"),[b] aptly captures Descartes' intent."
Other forms
"The proposition is sometimes given as "dubito, ergo cogito, ergo sum". This fuller form was penned by the eloquent French literary critic, Antoine Léonard Thomas, in an award-winning 1765 essay in praise of Descartes, where it appeared as "Puisque je doute, je pense; puisque je pense, j'existe." In English, this is "Since I doubt, I think, since I think I exist"; with rearrangement and compaction, "I doubt, therefore I think, therefore I am", or in Latin, dubito, ergo cogito, ergo sum.
A further expansion, "dubito, ergo cogito, ergo sum—res cogitans" ("…—a thinking thing") extends the cogito with Descartes' statement in the subsequent Meditation, "Ego sum res cogitans, id est dubitans, affirmans, negans, pauca intelligens, multa ignorans, volens, nolens, imaginans etiam et sentiens …", or, in English, "I am a thinking (conscious) thing, that is, a being who doubts, affirms, denies, knows a few objects, and is ignorant of many …". This has been referred to as "the expanded cogito"."
Predecessors
Although the idea expressed in cogito ergo sum is widely attributed to Descartes, he was not the first to mention it. Plato spoke about the "knowledge of knowledge" (Greek νόησις νοήσεως nóesis noéseos) and Aristotle explains the idea in full length:
But if life itself is good and pleasant (...) and if one who sees is conscious that he sees, one who hears that he hears, one who walks that he walks and similarly for all the other human activities there is a faculty that is conscious of their exercise, so that whenever we perceive, we are conscious that we perceive, and whenever we think, we are conscious that we think, and to be conscious that we are perceiving or thinking is to be conscious that we exist... (Nicomachean Ethics, 1170a25 ff.)"

Well... At first, I had a chance to observe the moon... the Supermoon... In the media it was mentioned about it that on " Nov. 14's supermoon will be one of three to close out 2016, it will stand out from the rest as the largest one since 1948. It will appear 14 percent larger and 30 percent brighter than a full moon that falls on apogee, the point in the moon's orbit when it is farthest away from the Earth." *(excerpts from internet.)
At noon and precisely, late in the afternoon, the sky was almost clearly, with some scattered clouds... However, after 8 pm... the sky had become so cloudy...

The result: a blurred face of the moon in a cloudy view on the night sky...
So... maybe I'll have another chance in 18 years from now on... :) 🌕🌕🌝
Gulls & sunset. Gulls on the sky in a chilly overcast day.
Gulls & sunset in chilly autumn
Gulls & autumn in the evening
Gulls & sunset.
Gulls & sunset.
Gulls & sunset.

Extrase/Excerpts About
How to Photograph a Supermoon
From around the web/media*
*Source: National Geographic & internet (various sources).
"Supermoons aren’t that rare—the moon has been moving in much the same way for millennia—but this one will be the closest in 68 years, and it’ll be another 18 years before it’s this big again. As a result, the phenomena provides a great opportunity for astrophotography."
"Technically, the moon is the same size anywhere you see it in the sky. But seeing it near the horizon with structures like buildings, trees, or mountains for scale plays a trick on the mind that makes the moon seem slightly bigger (even though it’s not). Shooting with this in mind, and including these points of reference, will make for a richer photograph."

Caixa de Pandora (feat. Diksha Sati Garg) I "Mann Marzi Mauji"
Caixa de Pandora/Pandora’s Box, it’s full repertoire of original music, spins between the ambiences of magic landscapes, and a sound of an aesthetic contemporary sculpture, where the image easily invade the imagination of those who let themselves be taken by this dramatic and adventurers lines. 

Lyrics: Manoj Yadav
Music: Rui Filipe 
Performer: Caixa de Pandora, featuring Diksha Sati Garg
English:

"I am no shadow no god but a companion
A container without a name and soulful riddle
When I get lost on land
I am found in the sky
I am the boat and I am the riverbank
I am the resident and I am the residence
I am like the deer musk
I am the life of fragrance
I follow my heart and I am always happy
I am my own hope

Main saawan phagun bhaando,
Rang deti hoon main jaan ko,

I am rain spring summer
I give color to life
From the source of light to all illumination, it's all me
From the source of sound to all that can be heard it's all me
I am the embroidery of the Milky Way
I am the blame for always being happy
I am my own uniqueness
I am priceless".
