Millo Salgado - Sebastian And The Sea

Millo Salgado – Sebastian And The Sea

Millo is new to P1xels—Welcome!

This image is a few days old and it stops me every time I see it while scrolling through the site. I know it was shot with Hipstamatic – a really perfect lens/film combo for this image. I can’t tell if he did anything else to it—well, it looks like a little manual blurring, not sure what else. Whatever he did, he started with an excellent capture.

A wonderful, mysterious, evocative image.

The sun was going down behind a tattooed tree
And the simple act of an oar’s stroke put diamonds in the sea
And all because of the phosphorus there in quantity
As I dug you diggin’ me in Mexico.

There in the valley of Scorpio, beneath the cross of jade
Smoking on the seashell pipe the gypsies had made
We sat and we dreamed a while of smugglers bringing wine
In that crystal thought time in Mexico.

Sitting in a chair of bamboo, sipping grenadine,
Straining my eyes for a surfacing submarine.
Kingdoms of ants walk across my feet,
I’m a-shakin’ in my seat in Mexico.

Grasshoppers creaking in the velvet jungle night,
Microscopic circles in the fluid of my sight,
Watching a black-eyed native girl cut and trim the lamp,
Valentino vamp in Mexico.

The sun was going down behind a tattooed tree
And the simple act of an oar’s stroke put diamonds in the sea
And all because of the phosphorus there in quantity
I dug you diggin’ me in Mexico
