Photo of the Week: Bridalveil Falls, Yosemite National Park
Replacing the Eye Candy series which pedestalizes women (who don’t deserve to be pedestalized) will be a new series entitled Photo of the Week. This series will feature scenes shot by Rel (me) on his travels around America and the world. There may also be a few hotties thrown in from time to time.
Starting off this series is Bridalveil Falls inside Yosemite National Park. I captured this scene within minutes of descending down the mountain into the heart of Yosemite National Park on my motorcycle. This photo was, of course shot during my 10,000 mile long motorcycle camping trip. It was the first such adventure but definitely won’t be the last.
I accomplished more in a month with a bike and a tent than many people can accomplish with RVs that cost as much as homes. I wound my way through most of the western gems of the National Park system in that time period.
I literally felt my eyes watering up as rode down the mountain and into such beauty. All the risk of going so far alone with nothing more than two wheels and a tent was worth it somehow when I saw such majesty before my eyes.
All my life I wanted to share moments like this with a woman, but they were too busy trying to separate me and my wallet to appreciate what Nietzsche described as the childlike wonder, and lust for adventure and danger found in every man. I have it in spades, there’s little doubt.
There was something so pure about making this adventure in such a nomadic and minimalistic fashion. A man can forget he’s inside the matrix when he abandons the man-made world and delights in the natural world. There’s a whole other world that exists outside the realm of politics and the jetsam and flotsum of a dying Anglo culture and its obsession with machines and doing everything (including living life) in a mechanical way.
I try to experience that world whenever possible.
