A descriptive piece of my 64 280lbs friend,Gachinga's photo, in a rocky valley surrounded by mountains.

His Frame

A rocky terrain, with pockets of stubborn ferns protruding from their depths. A man stands, arms akimbo. From a distance, his large frame is swallowed by the expanse of the landscape.

The sunshine showers the land from a once overcast sky, the clouds still intent but undecided. His soul speaks its peace in the quietude of the view, the distant mountains, lush with greenery, offer him company like a keen audience at a recital.

Time holds still,each gaze is measured and deliberate yet carefree. His travels have allowed him a festival of sceneries and he drenches himself in this one too, like a familiar chapter in a tattered book.
