so I met a stranger through an “OfferUp” deal. I bought a lens for my camera off him. I noticed he had a tattoo of a distinct owl on his left forearm. it turned out o be the logo of my favorite coffee shop. weeks later he invited me to come with him and a couple other friends on a trip to a national park. meeting him once I was skeptical but deciding to get out of my comfort zone. this picture is the product of that decision. that trip planted a seed in my being. I want to start traveling and exploring the world I live in. let this day be the marker, the genesis of that.
