    • A Silhouette

    • International Studies Abroad (ISA)
    • This picture represents one of the greatest experiences I believe I'll ever have. Three days and two nights we spent away from a crowded and foreign environment to be surrounded only by the calm quiet of the Sahara. We took a long camel ride over...
    • Amazon Amigo

    • International Studies Abroad (ISA)
    • During my time in Brazil I had the opportunity to travel to the Amazon. It was a nice study break to adventure on a riverboat and then sleep in hammocks at night with many other creepy creatures! During this curious adventure of mine I saw much...
    • Amazonian Mushrooms

    • Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands
    • One thing I learned during our hikes through the Amazon rainforest is that everything in the rainforest fights to optimize its chances for survival. These delicate mushrooms may have been easily overlooked, but they exemplify this principle well. ...
    • An Unexpected Home

    • South Africa Term
    • On Boulders Beach in Cape Town, African penguins grace the sand and marvel their audience. To tourists they seem out of place next to the crashing waves, but to the penguins this is simply home.
    • Atop the Blarney

    • Northern Ireland
    • This picture was taken while I was on a tour of the Republic of Ireland. It was taken from the top of Blarney Castle directly after kissing the Blarney Stone. Tradition says that kissing the Stone bestows the gift of eloquence upon whoever kisses...
    • Bienvenidos

    • Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands
    • We are just pulling into our last port in ferrying into the Galapagos Islands, and we were given a taste of the old world. A couple of sea lions made use of an old fishing boat that was anchored. It was an uncanny symbol of the slow, deliberate,...
    • Blue Agama Lizard

    • Middle East Studies Program (MESP)
    • As I reached the summit of an hour-long hike, I was rewarded by the sighting of an elusive Blue Agama Lizard. The stunning contrast lured me over to it as it sunned itself on the edge of a large cliff. I crept closer and closer until my lens was...
    • Bridge Over Empty River

    • International Partnership for Service Learning and Leadership (IPSL)
    • Santiniketan is a small town in West Bengal, India. It was here that Rabrindenath Tagore - polymath and native of Kolkata - began Visva-Bharati, a liberal arts university.  Though innovative in many areas, Visva-Bharati emphasized the relationship...
    • Cafe

    • Guatemala Term
    • Guatemala’s economy and Bethel students’ alertness is dependent on coffee. These coffee beans are drying in the sun, waiting to be roasted and become part of making coffee Guatemala’s number one export.
    • Dachau

    • Introduction to International Business
    • This photo was taken in Dachau Concentration camp, near the crematorium. I saw these thorns and thought of how closely they related to the suffering of the Jews, and the brutality of the Nazis.
    • Day Breaking on an Honored Tradition

    • Guatemala Term
    • After a 3 a.m. wake up call and a morning full of experiencing the honored Easter traditions in Antigua, I noticed this man walking towards us just as the sun was starting to rise. We had seen many Guatemalan men dressed like him throughout the...
    • Ephemeral Beauty

    • Creation Care Study Program (CCSP)
    • After my class one night, my roommates and I returned to our room to find it filled with army ants-insects who swarm over anything in their path in groups of thousands before quickly moving on. We slept outside that night, and awoke to find...
    • Foot prints in the sand

    •  
    • As our group was walking up the sand dunes in United Arab Emirates, I was so impressed with how perfect the ripples in the sand looked going on forever, but we stepped across it like we stepped into the culture. I stepped into a 100% Muslim...
    • In Touch With Nature

    • Travel Writing
    • Butterflies were swarming everywhere while we walked on the Brazil side of the Iguassu Falls. They were super friendly and were landing on everything, we finally got a few on our hands and snapped away with our cameras.
    • Irony

    • Globalization in India
    • In India there are very few trash bins so this is one of them. This photo I feel exposes the irony behind the environmental movement that has taken place so far in India. It is very simple, but it captures the essence of a material society. All...
    • Little Treasures

    • Creation Care Study Program (CCSP)
    • We spent a week at Glover’s Atoll for our marine ecology class. More than once I’d stop in my tracks, look down at the hermit crabs scampering over the white sand, look up at the abundance of coconuts dangling from the palm trees, look around at...
    • Mombasa Bubbles

    • Daystar University
    • Walking along the coast of the Indian Ocean in Mombasa, men come at you from every direction asking “Snorkel?” “Scuba?” “Ride my boat?” or “Want to buy a hand carved key chain?” Many will grab your attention by shouting “Mzungu! Mzungu!” “White...
    • Morning Prowl

    • Uganda Studies Program (USP)
    • The last day of our safari we went for a morning drive and saw this beauty! He was sleeping in a tree then decided to climb down. Here he is looking off to the morning of a new day.
    • Ostrich Farm at Sunset

    • Scare Tactics

    • Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands
    • I was out walking on my way to lunch when a station construction worker in front of me startled this snake. The worker looked back over his shoulder and motioned me over. He then proceeded to taunt the snake by waving his hands in different...
