A personal project that shows random people on mountains and hills. The exposed image in the shadow of their silhouette is the view from the position they were previously standing in.

You Are The Friction, a new collection of short fiction and illustration from Jez Burrows and Lizzy Stewart, is out now. The trailer features a preview of Joshua Allen’s story and Scott Campbell’s accompanying artwork, is narrated by 99% Invisible’s Roman Mars, and scored by Tom Rosenthal. You couldn’t make an easier way for me to part with twenty dollars.

On the flight back to Berlin, I started asking myself the most exciting questions. Like: what if small is better than big, now is better than later, reckless is better than careful? I looked at the calendar, I took stock of my capabilities, and I concluded that this would just barely be possible to do before the end of the year. Barely possible is the best kind of possible, so now I’m here.

The way rejection tends to be handled by Californians, who are sunny in disposition and less brusque than East Coast residents.

Couch and I broke out the bikes at the crack of dawn for a shaking out of the legs to San Bruno for a morning raid.

I was hungry for a ride - I just had my stitches taken out and was cleared for activity. 11 days off the bike felt like eternity.

The photos should be self-explanatory.

This is why we climb.
