PETRA, JORDANIA PHOTOS, 21ST JANUARY 2011

— This incredible place has many of my absolute favorite ingredients: rock-carved temples and tombs (alleged usage), caves, proto-Biblical references, pre- and post- human civilization overtones, Alexander the Great, spiritual infusion, monolithic man made structures, monolithic natural structures, density and mass on an epic scale, super-realism, surrealism & incredible hallucinatory factors (such as mind-bending color shifts, defacings, dense organic stone patterns, miraculous lighting and natural theatre), gorges, craggy peaks and fierce winds, blood altars, donkeys, etc.

Unbelievable.

Here are some attempts to capture that perspective with iphone camera.

RIP Brendan Majewski.
