What’s up Fatlace? – I’m back!

Last time I blogged on the site was in late 2010 if I recall correctly. I started back in early 2007 with some of the original stayfresh crew; from covering streetwear to drifting and everything around the photography world. From 2010 to fast forward 2014 a lot have changed.

Social media has taken over the world, we are consumed by being on our devices 24/7 – posting pictures on our instagram, twitter, Facebook, snapchat stories; damn we don’t even holla at shorty anymore, we resort to tinder to cure the night and the send her back on an Über.

I remember login into different blogs throughout the day to check what’s new, before twitter and isntagram ever existed. There was some good writing, great unfiltered photography but most of all, great personality and individuality.

I can continue to flood this photos with photos from all the great adventures I had during my years on Fatlace; but I think its best to leave those for TBT, no? (if you would like to see more photos, head to my flickr: Click Here).
