My First step in Israel

Shalom!

These past few days have been very meaningful and tiring for me! I've been around Israel for about three days and I am so blessed to be present where key biblical events transpired. There is just so much to understand and appreciate in Israel that it definitely is a place that everybody should experience! Indeed, Israel is the land of Milk and Honey, as God promised His chosen people. It is blessed with beautiful climate and landscape. Thru out the country side you will discover that it is rich in agriculture and livestock. Dry and cool air breeze surrounds the cities. The historical sites are well preserved and will give you a clear perspective of its past. I'm staying by the Sea of Galillee and it definitely is an awesome sight! I'll be soon going to Jerusalem and the Dead Sea and I'll keep you all posted with even more images of the Promised Land.

The City of Rock, Petra

I just came from Jordan, were I stayed in Amman and made a trip to Petra. Its an ancient city in the southern part of Jordan were its rocks formed thru earthquakes, wind and water and these rocks were carved into homes. It is a tourist attraction and is now part of The Seven Wonders of the World. It was such an amazing sight. Here are some images of this majestic city.

On my way to the Promised Land!

I'm packed and ready to go, I leave tomorrow for the Holy Land! I'm really excited not only because I'll have an opportunity to document the people and the places I'll be going to but primarily we will be having an in-depth bible study tour. Reading the history and events that transpired in the bible is so overwhelming and visiting the place is just as exciting! It will be a long trip, from Manila to Dubai, then Amman, Jordan then Israel. I'll try to post some images by the weekend. I just ask all my friends out there to pray for a meaningful and safe trip for our group. To God be all the glory! :D

The Star of David!

Good morning Vietnam!

Today I woke up in Hanoi, Vietnam! I can say I had a unique experience as I first looked out my window and walked in the streets of Hanoi. There were lots of fruit and vegetable traders and lots and lots of scooters and bicycles! Its just so amazing how people manage to cross intersections at fast pace without running to other people! Noodles were great! I'm now back in my hotel room planning for our next destination - Halong Bay! I'll post more sights of Hanoi very soon. :D



This is one busy intersection!

A new day, a new assignment...

I was on assignment yesterday to photograph personnel and the major equipments in a facility that fabricates metals for aircraft panels and machinery. The place was cluttered and relatively dark in most areas. I was able to achieve a balanced ambient lighting effect that make the images look natural and gave it a "strobeless" feel on it. I used different types of gels and diffusers and of course I was again working on Nikon CLS technology to do the trick.
