This is my free bird, the condor (search “Nazca Lines, Peru”), done on my right bicep. As an archaeology student, this represents my passion for things unknown, the mystery and beauty of human intention, and strength against the natural forces that exist only to break you.

photos by mark blinch taken march 3, 2014 from the american side of niagara falls showing the arresting affects of frigid winter temperatures on the more than half a million liters of water which pour over the falls every second.
when cold enough, the falling water and mist create ice formations along the banks of the falls and river, resulting in mounds of ice as thick as fifty feet. if the cold persists for long enough, the ice will completely stretch across the river and form what is known as the ice bridge, extending for several miles down river.
