Even while hiking in nature, completed succumbed by it, the occasion of full body immersion doesn’t happen as often as one would think it would.  Nature is beautiful in concept but also ruthless.  The idea of being one with nature sounds so natural and easy in thought but the actual process of living in nature is difficult.  Even as we are hiking these beautiful scenes unperturbed by society, we have countless number of barriers that are protecting us from the true nakedness of wildness.  Wool socks that wicks away foot moisture and soaks up all of the funky smells, synthetic gloves provide barrier from the uv rays, plastic sun glasses for more uv projection, boots that allow for your feet to move freely around unknown untouched virgin surfaces of the earth, an umbrella to keep the sun away and the rain away, a map to understand our location, hiking poles to find balance, plastic water bottles to keep the body hydrated, plastic bags to keep the food safe, separate, and dry.  The list never ends; we are constantly relying on man made, synthetic, unnatural, materials and taught knowledge to be with nature unpredictability.  As much as I want to, I can’t just be naked in the middle of the desert, to be “one with nature”.  In fact, to sustain life out in the wilderness, takes tremendous amounts of practice, perseverance, planning, and knowledge.

Thank you so much Brendan for inviting me over to your home and spending couple of hours with me on taking these awesome portraits and sharing your incredibly cool stories.

Brendan spends half the year providing internet as an IT admin to scientists in Antarctica and the other half logging over 70,000 miles up and down the America on his touring bike.

Needless to say I felt like kindred spirits had united, stories were exchanged, laughs were had, sparking moments of inspirations.
