I like to climb rocks, and lately, the bigger the better, but I’m no alpinist, never have been really. Maybe it’s from being from Toronto:) Looking back, I haven’t enjoyed being cold for long enough periods of time to actually “get into it”, and honestly, I have always preferred the gymnastic movements of difficult rock climbing to ‘picks and ‘pons. But after seeing this stunning online catalog by BD, I’m thinking a lot more seriously about starting.
What I love about images (and moving images) is that they have this very strange ability to strike our imaginations in ways that we could not predict they would. When I see these pictures and read these words, it makes me want to get out there and do something I’ve never done before, maybe it will have the same effect on you too? Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
