    • Midnight in Paris

    •  
    • It was Thanksgiving night after a wonderful dinner at the American church in Paris. I rushed to the Eiffel tower before it closed and decided to go all the way to the top that evening. Upon leaving, we walked through the park that surrounds the...
    • 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...
    • The Flowers of Moher

    • Academic Programs International (API)
    • My time walking up and down the Cliffs of Moher humbled me. To be in the presence of something so obviously amazing by its grandeur and beauty was such a profound moment. As I tried to drink in as much of the view as I humanly could, I began to...
    • My Reality

    • American Institute for Foreign Study (AIFS)
    • I was blessed to have an amazing apartment that overlooked the skyline of Florence. The Ponte Vecchio was right beneath my window, and living in such a historical place made me realize the beauty in architecture that has lasted beyond 50 years. ...
    • Outside the Noise

    • Arcadia University: Perugia, Italy
    • This photograph was taken in St. Peter's piazza in front of the Vatican. It is one of my favorites because it represents a quiet moment in a place so alive with sound. The day was filled with so many famous things to see in Rome with so much...
    • Natives of Galway

    • Arcadia, National University of Ireland
    • The swans in this photo live on the River Corrib, which flows through the middle of Galway, Ireland. It is impossible to avoid the river (or the swans) if you spend any meaningful time in the city. I captured this photo on a visit to the bay one...
    • The Buster in Gold

    • Australia Term
    • My friends and I would frequent the Circular Quay, the major downtown docking harbor, to catch ferries across the water. The strip along the harbor was never still, always full of locals, tourists, and street performers. This gold man was one of...
    • Our Aboriginal Dance

    • Australia Term
    • The indigenous people are a very important part of Australian culture. While in Australia, I had the opportunity to talk with adults and even interact with the kids of an Aboriginal community. These communities have litter-strewn streets,...
    • Arc de Triomphe

    • CEA Global Education
    • This picture was taken from the top of the Eiffel tower on a cold, blustery day when my friend Jack and I finally made it to the top. It was our last week in Paris. For me it represented the triumph we felt at making our way in a new culture,...
    • Five Old Gentlemen Peaks

    • China Studies Program (CSP)
    • Five Old Gentlemen Peaks. One day, my friends and I decided to take an adventure up the mountain behind our school campus. It was quite a tiresome climb up the steep mountain. I was determined to keep going because I wanted to see the view so...
    • Children at Play

    • China Studies Program (CSP)
    • This is one of my favorite pictures because it captures the essence of life being lived. After a long day going from one historical site to another in Beijing, we stopped at the Temple of Heaven. From a distance I heard little children laughing and...
    • 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...
    • 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...
    • 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!...
    • Wedding in Kenya

    • Daystar University
    • Saitoti and Lipaso are the couple in the middle, just about to be married. They are relatives of my host family in Kenya, the Kirishuas. Out of an assembly of 1,000 Kenyans, my friend Kelly and I were the only two Mwazungu-white people- at the...
    • 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...
    • Napping with Sea Lions

    • Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands
    • This is a perfect depiction of our time in the Galapagos Islands. These friendly and playful animals won favor in our hearts immediately as we stepped foot on our first beach. This was their classic beach pose, belly up with their fins crossed. Our...
    • Blowfish

    • EduVenture
    • This blowfish is a common sight for those daring enough to dive into the rarely ventured waters of the Sumbanese coast. These are two of my teammates, Tim Anderson and John Barr, displaying their catch after a late night spear fishing run. It...
    • The Far Side of the Sea

    • EduVenture
    • This photo was taken at Natandola Beach on Viti Levu, the main island of Fiji. It is of a native Fijian on horseback. This photo captures the essence of the tropical isolation of Fiji. From here in the U.S., Fiji is literally on the far side of...
