"Corner Juice Shop Part 1" from Guadalajara

This is one of my favorite photographs from my recent trip to Guadalajara. Mainly, I'm proud because it turned out exactly how I envisioned it at that moment. The silhouette is exactly how I wanted it.

"Tequila Distilling Tanks"

While in Mexico, we enjoyed a great Tequila region tour offered at our hostel, during which I took some shots inside. The tequila was literally bubbling fervently and smelled sweet and wonderful.

"Street Level" A Night Exposure from Mexico

A timed night exposure I took while in Guadalajara, Mexico. There were hundreds of small streets behind our hotel that mazed off into tiny neighborhoods. I was experimenting with perspective and was happy with this result:

The Cow

The last couple times I ventured out of the U. S. I've run into these cows. They're part of this world-wide art project that I won't link here, but this one provided me with a good shot:
