Here’s to the crazy ones,

The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently.

They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can praise them, disagree with them, quote them, disbelieve them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things.

They invent. They imagine. They heal. They explore. They create. They inspire. They push the human race forward.

Maybe they have to be crazy.

How else can you stare at an empty canvas and see a work of art? Or sit in silence and hear a song that’s never been written? Or gaze at a red planet and see a laboratory on wheels?

While some see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. BECAUSE THE PEOPLE WHO ARE CRAZY ENOUGH TO THINK THEY CAN CHANGE THE WORLD, ARE THE ONES WHO DO.  

Truly yours,
Apple

Thank you Steve Jobs, and may you rest in peace.

Hogueras Preparations,

Alicante, Spain. June 19, 2011. Children walk in El Barrio, one of the oldest neighborhoods in Alicante with a model of an Hoguera. Days before the festival officially begins residents walk around with costumes and masks and other preparations for the festival.


Hogueras de Ceramica

Alicante celebrates its biggest and most important annual festival ¨Hogueras de San Juan¨ on June 23rd and 24th. The cultural event, ¨Bonfires of Saint John¨ consists of musical performances, bull fights, food contests, and most importantly, hogueras. Hogueras are enormous and detailed art structures built by families in different provinces of Alicante. Despite the fact that hogueras take up to year to create, they are all burnt the night of the 24th, the longest day of the year. According to the residents, burning the hogueras during the summer solstice represents cleansing the city from negativity.  There are 6 categories, and over 90 hogueras all around the city of Alicante.

Most hogueras are built from paper mache, styrofoam, and wood. These ingredients allow the extremely large monuments to burn quickly, and efficiently during the festival.

Puerta del Sol Plaza– Protestors New Home

¨They call it democracy, but it isn´t!¨ Reads the sign next to a couple sleeping in a tent during ¨Acampada Sol.¨ Protestors turned the Puerta del Sol plaza into their own ¨acampada¨ or camp site on May 15th. Demonstrators have created signs filled with messages about peace, revolution, equality, and their rights. The movement demonstrates the widespread disillusionment felt by the people of Spain due to the political situation in which many consider to be corrupt and unfair. Photo by Natalie Edgar. Madrid, Spain. May 19, 2011.


 

While some sleep, other protestors begin their day in the Plaza del Sol square in the center of Madrid. ¨The M15 Movement¨ began through an online youth group fed up with insensible politicians and the economic crisis in Spain. The unemployment rate is currently at 22% , but youth unemployment (25 years and under) rates have reached over 43%, the highest in Europe.
