Here we have the body of an old airplane abandoned on the black sand of a beach so immense that it looks like a desert. You can barely sense wings that it does not have, or the tail. It has been more than four decades (1973) since this Super DC-3, that belonged to the American air forces stationed in Iceland in the middle of the Cold War, had to make a forced landing on the volcanic land of Sólheimasandur. The forced landing was a success and all the passengers came out safe and sound. The reasons why the plane stayed in place forever are unknown. Apparently in such an unpopulated area it was better to leave it there than to transfer it to an aerodrome. The years went by and it became part of the landscape. And there he stayed, silent witness of a catastrophe interrupted in extremis.

California is massive. Like, I drove thousands of miles during my road trip around it and barely left the state, massive. Like, highest point in the continental United States, massive. You get the point. But for all the grandeur that California is, some of the most beautiful and endearing things I found about the state weren’t that grand or even massive at all. A collection of black and white striped rocks along the Lost Coast. The contrast the moisture of a receding wave made on the sand left behind in it’s wake. Two gnarled trees standing side by side on a barren coastline. Nine silhouetted seagulls flying against a bright sky. The veins in rocks on a cliffside. The way fog encapsulated a hillside or hid the trees laying beyond its opacity. The small, simple, beautiful details so often lost in the massiveness that is California are, I think, what I’ll remember most about my trip. Don’t get me wrong, the big picture was beautiful, and I’ll be sharing plenty of pictures highlighting that as well, but the intimate details, the things you only see if you slow things down for a moment and really take it all in, are what I appreciated most. This is a collection called Minimal, California.
Iceland has been so incredible so far. This place is honestly like a different planet. So untouched and naturally beautiful. I’m so blessed to have a job where I get to travel the world and see such amazing things. Big up @ruroc - thank you 🖤

“Time is like a handful of sand, the tighter you grasp it, the faster it runs through your fingers “ -
We can’t slow down time, but we can live slower by living intentionally, selectively, and not rush everything. Celebrate small achievements and progress, not how fast you got it done. Fuck deadlines. Don’t let it rule your life. As our friends @urbangilt once said “Rushing towards goals is like speeding to your grave. No wonder they’re called ‘deadlines’...Life is all about the journey”
Black beach in Iceland ? Take me there please! Well I have to be patient on this one. Right now I’m just super stoked to explore the Alps during the best season! Heading soon towards Slovenia for the first time. Any recommendations??
