Lines can be found all around us. They can be natural or artificial; existing in nature or man-made. Riverbanks, trees, mountains, roads, fences, and buildings all form lines. Any visible object with a shape is made up of them. Lines may be rigid and straight or curved and bent. They can be short or stretch into infinity.

When space allows for it, I imagine the land to be a canvas. Scenery is beautiful when seen but magical when made and it is always an artist that cuts and carves and paints and pleads to the divine to bring such beauty to life. Where the Fars and Hormozgan provinces rubbed shoulders and tossed sand, I saw that artist labour at her love. She laid the canvas on the floor and built the land from north to south. At the top she slapped generous lumps of brown and yellow paint and it rose up like dirty whipped cream, thick, contorted, round, and smooth. Once it had dried and set hard, she picked up a scalpel and carved straight lines into the rounded hills. The hard paint fell away and revealed its inner layers: a cross-section of patterns and colours and lines that danced but never crossed. At times, the artistic surgery did not go as planned and she’d cut right through a bubble hiding just under the surface and in doing so she’d expose holes, canyons, and crevices in the mountainside.
She left the mountains in the top half of the canvas and moved down. There, she laid down a base layer of brown and spotted it with green fields and small towns of dirty buildings. She collected shepherds and goats in her hand and sprinkled them without care for where they landed. The mountains in the south were different. She picked up thin pieces of plywood and broke them into shards. They broke unevenly into torn arrowheads and revealed all their layers within. The artist glued them down onto the land, all in rows, all pointing north like an army of menace marching for no gain but gain itself.
Her artwork, that land, that landscape, was where I spent two days hitchhiking between Amir and The Persian Gulf.

#portbarton is a lesser known beach town on the island of #palawan .
It is the perfect place to escape a busy and hectic life with island hopping, waterfalls, and glorious beaches.
We stayed in this beachfront guesthouse for around $11 per night.

Baphuon Temple- the World’s Largest Puzzle. Archaeologists started piecing together 300,000 sandstone blocks to assemble this temple in the ‘60s but were interrupted by the Khmer Rouge. Records needed to reconstruct it were destroyed, leaving a giant puzzle to be solved essentially without the picture. It takes approximately 4 bottles of wine for Luke & I to complete a 1,000 piece puzzle so whoever completed this deserves barrels! •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #stahleckersabbatical#angkorwat#cambodia#siemreap
We call it the ‘Mysterious Forbidden Kingdom’. This is historical Lo Manthang in the Mustang district of northern Nepal. The most stunning landscapes with centuries old culture and history, it must make you want to visit.
There are so many reasons NYC is the world's top tourist destination. Although I am in love with Lisbon, I miss walking around my city. I'd wake up at 4am, grab my dog and walk all the way up to the GWB. Other days, I'd walk to the Brooklyn Bridge and back. NYC will always have a piece in my heart...but now it's time to get to know Lisboa and its art.
I ran over to the balcony when I saw it, a surprise upgrade from the @lungarnocollection on arrival to a room with a view of the Arno. My smile grew as I threw back the curtain, opened the door and stretched my body over as far as I could to get an unparalleled view of Ponte Vecchio.
Florence was the first place I ever traveled solo, it was a decade ago and I stayed in a hostel my first night. Looking out from this balcony at the Duomo and the city before me, I had to give myself a little pinch. ✨
As the sun began to set we rode camels over the crest of a dune and saw the flickering torch lights of the oasis beyond. What a magical evening under the stars with @platinumheritage #platinumheritage @visit.dubai #visitdubai#desertsafari
Love this pic with @shil92 - my absolute saviour when it came to prep. My fiancé and his family planned the whole ceremony and actually hosted it all. However, the small amount I had to prepare was completely coordinated and created by my gem of a sister! Thank you Shil 💛 📷 by @ireneyap
