James was one of the next people I wanted to include in this photo series. He and I became close fairly quick. Having most of my family back home, it was a blessing to have him here for the holidays. He's from San Francisco and although it's not too far from Los Angeles, he wasn't able to make the trip home either.
We spent Christmas together hiking and bonded over talk of our families and where we were from. He's become like a brother to me and knows how to give a damn good hug.
