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!
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!
My favorite part about this image is how the flower fills the entire frame of the image. I like images that focus on one object and allow it to be the central focus of the entire shot. The little bug on this flower also added a nice element to this shot, as it shows how large the flower is in comparison to him.
