During the war, the Allies and Nazis fortified the coast of Northern Europe with pillboxes, gun emplacements and huge barriers meant to repel ships and tanks. They were largely forgotten after the invasion of Normandy, abandoned as the Allies pressed on toward Germany. Nearly 80 years later, only ruins remain.
instagram x urban exploring

I popped by the Jonathan Levine space last night on 23rd to check out the new Haroshi exhibit. It was super good. Snapped these along the way.
There was a lot of content relating to coffee today in my news feed. I’m not exactly sure why. Probably coincidence. I found it all relatively interesting for various reasons.

Came across this video today. It was posted on a blog that I like less and less, so I’m not even going to link back to it. But This vid was a nice reminder of what summer felt like growing up in Utah. There is also some decent skateboarding.
