Often heard the captain of a ship say that ‘we are going to be passing a rock on the left/right hand side’ or ‘we will be going around the rock’. It’s all a little too trivial when compared to going through a rock and I have photographic evidence to prove it!

in my hometown of Harrow in London, United Kingdom. Given that London is one of the most
visited and storied cities in the world, I feel very privileged to have grown up in such an
