I thought this would be a fun image to share to begin the holiday season! This image is actually of a decorated Christmas tree and I moved the camera in a circular motion to get this blurred effect. I love the abstract appearance as it looks more like a painting than a picture. Enjoy!
I found some old buildings while taking a walk and I came across this old wooden one. I thought that the aged wood and danger sign was pretty interesting. In black and white, the door really stands out and becomes the focal point of the entire image, which I found to be very simple yet striking. Enjoy!
During the week of Memorial Day, Merced College places flags on the front lawn of the campus. Each flag is dedicated to military personnel, firefighters, and police officers who have either served, are serving, or have passed in the line of duty. I have never actually went out to look at them up close, but this year I decided to. I found the flags to be even more beautiful up close. Enjoy!
Recently I took a trip up to my families cabin before it was closed for the winter. On the drive up there, I took this image that looks over the valley and the sea of trees below. I love how this image reveals different shades of blue, like the waves of the ocean. Enjoy!
The fall season is my favorite season of them all. I love the cold weather and how the colors of the trees contrast against the gray, hazy sky. I love the leaves in this image and how they appear so bright and vibrant compared to the deep brown of the tree trunks. Enjoy!
I love the patterns that are seen on the leaves of this succulent. I found this image to be slightly ominous and thought the black and white effect added to this appearance. Enjoy!
I took this image while walking in downtown Merced the other night. The theater lights really stand out and this building is essentially what people associate with Merced. I thought it would be a little different to make this image black and white and only have “Merced” stand out. Enjoy!
This image was taken while driving on the bridge coming into San Francisco. I love how the sky scrapers stand out and appear high in the sky, which has always been a notorious sight to see in this big city. Enjoy!
I took this photo while walking in San Francisco with a few of my family members. I stayed a little ways behind to get some nice shots as we walked along the streets. This is one of my favorite images from this trip. I love how the tree branches created an arched appearance. Enjoy!
I took this image at FFA creek up in the Sierra Nevada mountains. My family and I have visited this spot for many years and I always love seeing the formation of the rocks and nature’s beauty. I thought the way the rocks were stacked here made for an interesting image. Enjoy!
