Kenya '18 • toughest job to date. body and mind stretched. but I'm reluctant to leave. very grateful to have touched East Africa. God willing I'll be back 🌍🇰🇪

time // present: it's been an intense year so far. barely had a moment to chill and I suspect one won't be able to for a while longer but one has never felt more alive so it's worth it. these images are from 2016 whilst climbing Ben Lomond in Scotland with two treasured friends of mine.
one of whom is incredible Glasgow-based photographer @zenowatson (who took these photos). my hair was in its infantile growth stage. this climb wasn't a job. just a client-turned very good friend named Jim Griffith inviting me to take time out. it was taxing. very much so. but at end (as you can see), I found myself in a place where nothing else mattered except the present and everything made sense. importantly, there was peace.
so let's go there: the present. a place we can affect and exist in wholly. the only place that really matters and the only place we can actually do something about. truly grateful for all the journeys since then and the people behind them. as always: the world is yours 🌍
