I hate that the people I love are spread all over the place. I want them with me, near me, closer than a phone call or flight away. I cried a lot this week - oceans of tears. Not because we left New York, but because of the community we left here. What a joy to get to visit New York. What a joy to have people to visit. But goodness does the heart ache when you have to leave them.

Amanda, an employee, helps in the kitchen of Mel's Downtown Restaurant in Morocco, IN. “I moved out here from Chicago,” she says. “I love it here. Just wish there was a bit more in the area. But the people make up for it. They’re nice. That means so much more to me.” #streetphotography #streetleaks #streetshared #spicollective #timeless_streets #streets_vision #streetlife_award #streetlife #street_perfection #capturestreets #streetphoto #photoobserve #loves_street #street_photo_club #ourstreets #everybodystreet #streetselect #ourstreets #lensculturestreets #streetsdreammag #spicollective #hikaricreative #storyofthestreet #streetphoto #streetphotography #street #sweet_street_beat #streetportrait #nwi #northwestindiana #indiana #documentaryphotography
Amenda, a waitress, works on weekends at Mel's Downtown restaurant in Morocco, IN. “I work for a local attorney during the week and here on the weekend.” She buzzes around the restaurant with high energy, talking with most of the customers by name. I tell her she seems like a hard worker. “I’m a single mom. I have to be.”#streetphotography #streetleaks #streetshared #spicollective #timeless_streets #streets_vision #streetlife_award #streetlife #street_perfection #capturestreets #streetphoto #photoobserve #loves_street #street_photo_club #ourstreets #everybodystreet #streetselect #ourstreets #lensculturestreets #streetsdreammag #spicollective #hikaricreative #storyofthestreet #streetphoto #streetphotography #streetphotographer #street #sweet_street_beat #streetportrait #yallersstreet #nwi #northwestindiana #indiana
“We really did not expect to do so well,” Michael, Melanie’s husband says. “At times there is no seats left.” He explains that they may need a larger space. “We’re lucky. The people like this place and the food.” He told me that Melanie wants everything to taste home cooked. “We don’t buy any fake eggs or anything.” This is true. The food was amazing. “It’s the opposite of those fast food places,” Michael adds. He works the night shift and comes to the restaurant every morning for breakfast. “I eat most meals here,” he says. “This is where my wife is. It’s where I want to be.” When the dishwasher called off, Michael pitched in, washing the dishes. “I don’t mind helping,” he says. Though, after working all night at his “day job” he admits, “I am a little tired though… But, you do what’s needed.” #streetphotography #streetleaks #streetshared #spicollective #timeless_streets #streets_vision #streetlife_award #streetlife #street_perfection #capturestreets #streetphoto #photoobserve #loves_street #street_photo_club #ourstreets #everybodystreet #streetselect #ourstreets #lensculturestreets #streetsdreammag #spicollective #hikaricreative #storyofthestreet #streetphoto #streetphotography #streetphotographer #street #sweet_street_beat #streetportrait #yallersstreet #nwi #northwestindiana #indiana
“I’m trying to take this place into the 21st century,” Chanel says, standing with her father, Michael at Mel's Downtown Restaurant. Chanel is Melanie’s daughter and she has a passion for the restaurant. “I set up the credit card machine,” she says. “That was a big deal. My parents need to be pushed a bit when it comes to technology.” Chanel explains that she was only a few years old when her parents opened the diner. “I grew up here. The old men you see coming in… They were all like grandfathers to me.” She points to a large table. “I would sit there with crayons and color and talk to all these adults.” Chanel told me she is more at home talking to adults than people her age. “These people have fascinating stories and you can learn a lot from them.” She is now in college and plans to help with the restaurant when she graduates. “This place was more of a home to me than our house. It still is… I’m very lucky.” #streetphotography #streetleaks #streetshared #spicollective #timeless_streets #streets_vision #streetlife_award #streetlife #street_perfection #capturestreets #streetphoto #photoobserve #loves_street #street_photo_club #ourstreets #everybodystreet #streetselect #ourstreets #lensculturestreets #streetsdreammag #spicollective #hikaricreative #storyofthestreet #streetphoto #streetphotography #streetphotographer #street #sweet_street_beat #streetportrait #yallersstreet #nwi #northwestindiana #indiana
For a city that's largely concrete, these colorful, endless markets are a source of vibrance and energy. To add to that we've got some of the best produce and goods here which, coupled with their relatively cheap rates, are a reason to visit the city and take benefit of. In picture is an assortment of candies, dates, honey bottles as well as an atrger (anjeer) hanging from the top 😃. What interesting facts or stories have you got about the Empress Market? _ _ _ _ _ _ #moodygrams #moodyports #nature_brilliance #globetrotter #worldexplorer #southeastasia #gramexpo #compassunion #earth_captures #artofvisuals #hippieinhills #himgeo #thevisualyatra #areyouawake #earthdeluxe #exploretocreate #earthofficial #jaw_dropping_shots #gameoftones #mypixeldiary #thecreatorclass #createandexplore #createcommune #shotzdelight #streetsdreammag #guardiancities #featuremeinstagood #everydayeverywhere #everydaypakistan

"Beautiful State of Mind" • Controlling your emotions and living in what is called a beautiful state of mind, your life instantly changes. It gives you control again, and gives you a better attitude towards others. David G. Martinez
Valladolid is a must visit when in Mexico. A cool urban Mexican vibe, colourful buildings, beautiful churches, excellent Mayan cuisine and wait for it....close to the tempel of Coba and Chichen Itza 🙌 I definitely fell in love with this beautiful Mexican city! ====== 📍 Valladolid, Yucatan in Mexico ====== #valladolidyucatan #valladolidtravel #visitvalladolid #valladolid #streetsdreammag #streetphotography #instamexico #churches #mexicoholiday #instatravel #mexicantravel #lonelyplanet #7worldwonders #natgeotravel #lonelyplanetnl @valladolidyucatan

“I have been rescuing animals for 30 years,” Michelle says. “I’ll help anything with fur or feathers.” In 2011 she started Feline Community Network, a non-profit cat rescue located in Hobart, IN. “We pick up cats from anywhere in Lake or Porter County and sometimes even farther.” The facility is not a shelter, Michelle explains, as “we only take cats that are injured, those that shelters can’t handle, or cats about to be euthanized. We are truly rescuing them.” The facility does not only rescue cats but rehabilitates them. “We are not the Walmart of rescues,” she says. “We are more like Macy’s. These cats get high quality cat food, vitamins, rehabilitation and great medical care.” Michelle herself has 8 cats, 2 dogs, one snake and a lizard. Michelle told me she often works 7 days a week. “We have a couple of employees,” she says, “I’ve never gotten a dime from here. It all goes to the cats. My husband supports us. We struggle at times, but it’s worth it.” When Michelle turned 40 she realized she wanted to do something “important” with her life. That was the day she quit her day job and devoted herself full-time to helping animals. “Cats are overlooked,” she says. “People think just letting a cat roam free is okay. It’s not.” Her demeanor changes a bit. “Cats are not disposable. A cat is not a toy.” She says to me, “remind people to get their cats and dogs spayed or neutered.” I asked her, what is the hardest part of running the rescue? She pauses and says, “When I have to turn a cat away… That’s the hardest.” "#streetphotography #streetleaks #streetshared #spicollective #timeless_streets #streets_vision #streetlife_award #streetlife #street_perfection #capturestreets #streetphoto #photoobserve #loves_street #street_photo_club #ourstreets #everybodystreet #streetselect #ourstreets #lensculturestreets #streetsdreammag #spicollective #hikaricreative #storyofthestreet #streetphoto #streetphotography #streetphotographer #street #sweet_street_beat #streetportrait #yallersstreet #nwi #northwestindiana #indiana #hobartindiana

"Confidence" • The older I get, the more the more I see myself becoming the most confident I've ever been in my life, Seeking nothing but the very best in life, I love life and yes some days are harder and depression and self doubt sets in but I'm learning more each day to control it and make the very best of each day and taking massive action towards what I want, because as far as we know we only have this one life.I want an amazing life for both me and my future generations. So why not work towards it now that I'm young, I'm blessed to have so much opportunity and abundance in all aspects of my life. I seriously am excited for the future. There is literally no unrealistic goal for me and that's what makes life so beautiful and exciting for me knowing I have no boundaries I'm limitless... • To all of my followers I simply ask that you make the most out of your life if you're unhappy change it there's nothing stopping you but yourself. I hope to continue to inspire atleast one of you to not fear life but to embrace it every single day. David G.Martinez

"I got throat cancer when I was 48," Carl says. I met him at his shop Hoosier Daddy Customs in downtown Morocco, IN. "Cancer changed my life," he says. "It made me realize how short life is.” After surviving cancer, Carl threw himself into his love of vintage cars. Today, he has an entire warehouse of cars, which he buys, sells and trades. "I am not making any money, but I’m having fun." He tells me that he is engaged to Natasha, who he came to know through their mutual interest in vintage automobiles. “You need to meet her,” he says, calling her. In minutes, Natasha shows up. “We've been in love for nearly three years now,” she says. “I’m 34 and Carl is 59. People who don't know us say I'm a gold digger." How do you deal with that, I ask. "I've been through too much in my life to let it bother me. People who know us know the truth."#streetphotography #streetleaks #streetshared #spicollective #timeless_streets #streets_vision #streetlife_award #streetlife #street_perfection #capturestreets #streetphoto #photoobserve #loves_street #street_photo_club #ourstreets #everybodystreet #streetselect #ourstreets #lensculturestreets #streetsdreammag #spicollective #hikaricreative #storyofthestreet #streetphoto #streetphotography #streetphotographer #street #sweet_street_beat #streetportrait #yallersstreet #nwi #northwestindiana #indiana
“My parents died from drugs.” Natasha says. She tells me that she was taken away from her mother when she was 14 years old due to “physical abuse.” Natasha talks fondly about her grandfather. “He had all kinds of farm vehicles and I loved spending time with him.” Despite her connection with her grandfather, she admits that she ended up on drugs. “I was an addict for a long time… I finally got clean,” she says. How did you do it, I ask. “My son was 9 years old and he didn’t want anything to do with me. I thought I was losing him… And I was.“ She looked off and I took this photo. That was the turning point," Natasha said. She looked back at me. “Share my story. If I could do it, anyone can.” #street #environmentalportrait #streetportrait #streetphoto #streetphotography #nwi #northwestindiana #indiana #streetleaks #streetshared #spicollective #timeless_streets #streets_vision #streetlife_award #streetlife #street_perfection #capturestreets #photoobserve #loves_street #street_photo_club #ourstreets #everybodystreet #streetselect #ourstreets #lensculturestreets #streetsdreammag #spicollective #hikaricreative #storyofthestreet
