|| With Who > Where To ||
The past couple months I’ve been extremely busy getting ready to open my first creative/photo studio and event space called @theharborstudio ———————————————————————————
Without having much free time to get out and adventure, my Canadian friend @itsbigben came down to explore the Olympic Peninsula and what a day it was! From bridges to waterfalls to mountain tops, we covered a lot of ground and took in so many amazing sites, but what made the day was not so much about where we went but who I went with!
The conversations we shared about life, our pasts and futures, our dreams and our struggles, our values, passions and just overall stories. Along with all of the deep talks came plenty of laughs to balance it out.
I’ve always chose what I do based not off of a desire for riches and fame, but experiences, community and cherished memories that I get to have doing what I do.
I’ve taken almost this exact picture of this waterfall, but what makes the picture so much more valuable to me is the person that it’s in it and the memories that surround it!
You can go anywhere, but no where is as good as the people you go there with.

So far away from everything where time doesn’t mean a thing.
Mud bath on pause.
Radiating affectionate curiosity,
She speaks through her quiet gaze.
The suspended moment lingers.
Suddenly, a sufficiently muddied trunk rises up from a pool of well-soaked earth and lovingly taps me on the forehead. A swash of pale grey soil remains. She grins a wide and happy grin. Her signature move and the most friendly of gestures.
Meet Miss Moyo. Rescued at a very young age she’s surely the most gregarious in her herd of fellow orphaned elephants resident at the Zimbabwe Elephant Nursery: @zen_wildislife
Next month I’ll be returning to @zen_wildislife in collaboration with @action4ifaw to further document their leading elephant rehabilitation program.
I’ll be working more often with @action4ifaw in the coming months and I’m excited to share more details regarding this project in particular very soon!
In the meantime, if you’re interested to learn more about Moyo and the other elephants at @zen_wildislife, check out the link in my bio. ❤️🐘
