Blue VW Bus

VW Bus

VW will always be a company I love. Especially these classic cars.

Here’s a shot I captured and edited. Summary of edits using Adobe Photoshop: first some brightness was added, as a result of adding brightness some contrast was lost. To reverse this I added contrast back in. I like the urban grunge look it achieved.

The patina on the front bumper and the reflection of the trees in the windshield just make this photo great.

Golden Gate Bridge

Golden Gate Bridge

I love taking photos. It really helps to point out all of the beautiful things in this life. It’s a way to capture the happy moments that you don’t want to forget and helps me be grateful for beautiful things all around us.

I know the Golden Gate Bridge is often photographed, but I really like this perspective. Often the view is from the side, yet I feel this perspective makes the bridge seem larger and more powerful.


There are things others don’t often see as beautiful that really are beautiful.

This was shot taken on a bridge when my friend started climbing it. I was planning a lot of other pictures at this location, but this one was just out of the blue, yet I really love it.

Oh Jerusalem, the Holy City

Jerusalem at Night

I got to study in Jerusalem during college. This shot was taken from the campus of the university where I was studying. It’s a view of the old city and East Jerusalem, primarily inhabited by the Muslim community. The unfocused blur of the lights gives a very fun look to this shot, this is probably why I like it so much.

Curb Your Blues

I love urban shots, they are just so cool. There is a great impact to changing perspective and adjusting the focus to only be shallow and on a part of the image you wouldn’t normally focus on.

Horse Hair

The textures from the dust on the leather to the horsehair, to the decorative beads, really add a lot of visceral appeal to this image.

The Treasury in Petra | Peeking Through the Rocks by Brett Jenkins

The Treasury in Petra

By this point, you might be able to tell that I really like to find a perspective that doesn’t look like every other photo of well-photographed locations. This is another example of that.

The Treasury in Petra is iconic. But until I visited myself, I didn’t realize that the Treasury sits right at the end of a slot canyon. This was my first glimpse of the amazing building as I exited the canyon.
