I love when a post stirs opinions, Like this one. It means people are forced to deal with an ideology or thought process that is different than their own & choose to agree, disagree or educate. I don't ride motorcycles but have a massive respect for that do & understand the need for people to enjoy access to open land for a VARIETY of uses. One of the biggest issues I see is that trying to take a one sided approach to how we use these places alienates many people and interest groups. Continuing with this "I'm right, you're wrong" mindset when it comes to public space is what has divided us thus far. Although it's a beautiful idea that all nature could be preserved and left in a perfect state ( in a perfect world it would be) it's not the case for us & that also alienates the way some people enjoy land. Although this ^ is more disruptive than putting bolts on a wall, taking non native animals outdoors, the romanticized idea of livestock/ farming or creating a mtn bike or hiking trial.. All damage nature in some small way. Keep in mind every road we drive on was once unspoiled nature. our homes stand on land that belonged to someone else and may have displaced wildlife. For those who have a mind set that this is "just for likes" or some idiotic rhetoric - this place is a long standing and widely used ATV and off road area used by thousands and widely enjoyed. Photos & videos of it are all over. I share work here i have shot personally and commercially and I can guarantee that my interest in people’s ‘likes’ is the least motivating force behind what I shoot and share. I would implore you to think before speaking, commenting and try to understand the motivation behind such a post. If people did the smallest bit of research they would understand that my greatest goal is to challenge how people think and view roles in the environment. Doing that doesn’t always mean you embrace popular opinion.———————————— .
