Man vs. Wild

“Green, green everywhere; Not a grass to pick” Indeed you can not step out of your jeep. You are dazzled by the landscape, your heart pounds to the rhythm of the motor engine, you overflow with feelings and yet you are soothed with beauty. If only you could break open the door of the jeep…

Weight Issues vs. Image issues
