Blog

Welcome to Solomon’s Post. This blog is a passion project I started in 2016 to document my travels and goals throughout the year. During that process, I grew my photography portfolio exponentially. While I continue this project, I hope to help inspire you to see the world and to motivate people to make every year an important one. Whether you're family, a friend, or just happen to find my blog, I hope you enjoy my work, and remember to fulfill your ambitions and never give up.

So there I was, standing in front of the bathroom in the back of the plane. 37,000 ft. above the Atlantic Ocean, still 1900 miles left before we reach Ireland, when I heard something I couldn't believe.
