    I haven't been on here for a while, busy last few months with no photography :x so the following pictures are me waaaay out of practice, any and all comments/critique welcome.

    Finally got a couple of weeks off and immediately left on a trip, these are from back home. In Jerash are the ruins of a once huge roman city.

    Unfortunately the main amphitheater was closed and undergoing some type of restoration, it is still currently in use for a yearly music festival, along with other smaller ones.

    Some of the carving detail...

    Yeah, when I saw on the main board that you had posted some pics, I stopped by as it's been a while since I've seen you post! Hope all is well.

    Graduated. Now I have to face the real world :) Got a postdoc position doing some more research, same institute I did my grad work in, so not much of a transition. I just hope I get more time (and money) to travel and practice my photography.

    Thanks for asking Anty :D

    Man, that's a long time to be away!! It must stir up a lot of feelings and memories to return and see all the inevitable changes.

    It was a long time to be away, some things have changed and some have thankfully stayed the same. Good food hasn't changed for one ;)
