Tomb Raider

Tomb Raider

Tomb Raider was filmed at various locations around Angkor Wat. However this is not one of the sites they used. But that is exactly what the image reminded me of. Off to the left there is a building I walked through that is made up of pillars. It has the oddest feel, as though it’s not really a room. Rather it feels like it could have been a maze. This is another of the places where I really wonder what these spaces were used for.

The image was shot on my Sony A7Rii with the 10-18mm lens. I set the camera to use full frame to get as much detail as I could into the image. Processed into HDR with Aurora HDR Pro. I did a bit of work in Adobe Photoshop with the lighting to draw the eye to the stairs. Then I used Macphun’s Focus CK to fuzz down the edges. And of course final tweaks were all done in Lightroom.


Working on a few cool things right now. One I hope to announce in the next couple days that involves Chicago. Another is just expanding my wordpress knowledge. Good times, and lots of positive vibes lately. I am contacting, and being contacted by travelers from all over the world. I’m so looking forward to seeing where this blog goes in the next 6 months.

Growing up one of my biggest dreams was to explore the world. Honestly I never thought this would become reality. But at the end of 2014 I quit my job as a project manager to do just that. I sold most everything I own, packed up the remaining boxes in storage, and set out to see the world. My goals while traveling are to meet people everywhere I go, work on becoming a better photographer, and attempt to stay where the weather is not freezing. Along the way I am posting photos at and writing about my experiences at
