I love this photo!  I look at it and see more than just a man on a bike with a lake in the background.  I see a man, alone, balancing.  A man on a bike witnessing a wild greater than himself; The large lake, the big blue sky, the never ending mountainous landscape, the tall evergreen trees and the last wisps of some fading clouds.  I see a man with tense shoulders and feel hopeful that the following breath will soften them.  I see a shadow that appears to be larger than the man and yet I see that this man doesn’t notice or quite frankly doesn’t care.  I see a man who’s intention was to go straight when life through a lake in his path.  Though a road was laid to guide the man around, I see a hesitation and a curiosity to ignore it.  I see this photo and I don’t just see a man on a bike with a lake in the background.  I see me … all of me.

What do you see?

Want More BENG In Your Life?


I’m an outdoorsy kinda guy! Love over packing my golden backpack full of just incase “Boy Scout” things, hopping on my steed and riding wherever my impulses guide me. Some days I end up a few blocks from home, while others I end up further than I ever imagined. Behind all of it, a desire to see, hear, taste, smell and touch this planet. It’s such a vibrant beautiful place that my desire to witness and experience everything and anything that comes across my path, is painfully addicting. My name is Ben and I’m an addict! Im a junkie for exploring life and all its offerings!
