This is such a good read. Proud of you sir.
I can not imagine the amount of time it took to compile these photos. Thanks!
I’d love to watch the lives of some of these people for a day. Imagine what an impact it would have on how you saw your own life.
Splendid humanity, wondrous bodies, capricious human will (sometimes). Gorgeous shots, as ever.
Thank you so very much.
