you know what? sometimes it really hits me over the head that i threw away the best person that will ever belong to me and the only person who knows me fully.
and even though it was and is right, i know that no one will ever love me as well or treat me as well or be as good to me as that. and i don’t know what to make of it. except for that it would have been selfish of me to stay with someone when my feelings had changed and i had grown apart from her. and i deserve every unhappiness in the world because of that. because i broke the heart she had entrusted to me.
she is, and will continue to be, the best, most genuine, most caring person that i know. and i only hope that whoever is lucky enough to love her next treats her with the respect and love she deserves. and doesn’t break her heart. she taught me what it is to be loved, but i don’t know if i will ever find someone who loves me like she did. and i definitely know i don’t deserve it.
"while sitting on brighton beach (UK) back in 2005 with my new girlfriend, verity, i thought the view of our feet pointing out to sea would make a nice photo. ever since then we’ve continued to document our travels in this way, resulting in a collection of over 100 photos. in 2011 the series took a new twist with the arrival of a third set of feet – our daughter matilda. you can already see her little feet getting bigger and bigger." - text and photos by tom robinson

“A biker’s power and intimidating image can even the playing field for a little kid who has been hurt. If the man who hurt this little girl calls or drives by, or even if she is just scared, another nightmare, the bikers will ride over and stand guard all night.
If she is afraid to go to school, they will take her and watch until she’s safely inside.
And if she has to testify against her abuser in court, they will go, too, walking with her to the witness stand and taking over the first row of seats.”
i can’t explain how much of my ‘faith in humanity’ these guys have restored.
