Endurance implies a length of time to me. Not only to endure challenging physical conditions such as weather, but to endure cultural changes and societal changes. To live on long after death is best kind of endurance there is.

I don’t have the opportunity to travel much: thus the subtitle of this blog. My world is quite small. For the most part, my “adventures” consist of checking out¬†local parks and taking photographs. I actually spend most of my time trying to avoid “humanity,” so this is a tough challenge for me. I took this photo during a recent trip to a city park; I thought it was great to see people using the park.

Biking is fun!

From The Netherlands: Chris Breebaart Photography
