Went mountain biking at @chasetrails in England. The trails were absolutely intense, and we found a bit of a break in the woods where my brother in law decided to ride across this fallen tree (he nailed it). I took a small spill at the beginning, but after that it was non stop mud, rock climbs and jumps for about 10 miles. Now for a shower and a beer.

"In the case of the Burmese migrants, I was drawn to it because of the similarities to immigration stories in the western hemisphere and the universality of the human condition. The camera has given me a passport to go into world’s many people never think about. It’s important for me to be honest with the people I’m photographing and not betray the trust they show me. I’m not telling my story, I’m using my cameras to tell theirs." - Jack Kurtz
ok, i’m posting this as a quasi-architecture photo. hm. why?
ok, time to justify myself.
because… architecture defines a space and this rainbow also defines a space? and a simple curved line changes how we perceive the space contained both within and around it? is that too justify-y?
also i felt lucky that i was able to take this picture, as it’s a rainbow going from the observatory (which is architecture!) to the hollywood sign (which is architecture for the squirrels who probably live in the hollywood sign?).
also, happy holidays. next up: real buildings. well, in theory.
