the in-between is the adventure. our lives are all made by our connections with others and the collective adventures that prompt our relationships.
the first photo was taken while reconnecting with an old friend on the hillside of tantalus. the second photo is of a sixteen-year-old’s first bicycle ride from kalihi valley to koko head. the third photo was taken at the beginning of a new friendship.
most of my photos are bicycle-related. almost all my closest friends have been bicycle enthusiasts. the bicycle is a social form of transportation that conveys limitless adventure opportunities.

For most of us an adventure is synonymous with the freedom to hike on the weekend, maybe spend few hours at the beach, or perhaps take a road trip out of town.
But for some us, an adventure is a life of sacrifice so that others may have theirs.
The spirit of adventure.
It is enjoyed by every single one of us because of a brave few that made a promise.
That you will live free or they will die trying.
A quick interview with current champion Phil The Photomancer:
What was the reason for choosing “adventure” as this week’s theme?
Thinking of “Adventure” just came organically to me. I actually had trouble thinking of a theme for this week and a couple of the themes I wanted to use had already been featured a few weeks back. However, I think “Adventure” will get myself and my challenger moving both physically and creatively.
What was your last adventure?
Honestly? The day my son was born. As much as I had prepared with my wife, that day was the most intense few hours of my life. A concentrated dose of fear, nervousness, and anxiety followed by equal amounts of overwhelming joy.
Any hints to what we can expect for your next photos?
I actually went on an adventure to get the inspiration for my entry for “Adventure”.
What’s the next adventure you are looking forward to?
I’m in the Army. There is always adventure. ;)
Any advice for budding photographers out there?
Never stop shooting. Great photographers were once budding hobbyists like yourselves. Trust me, you will discover and understand yourself and the talents you possess this way more than any other method.
