colerise standing in the 2000-year-old roman city of Jerash, where the column stones sing like metal to warn of earthquakes, and shards of ancient pottery still poke from the dirt. #jerash #jordan #litely 3d

colerise arrivals and departures in old Dubai - one of my favorites places to get lost, with its twisting stone corridors that fill with the scent of coffee and spices, and the sounds of merchants selling textiles and baskets of bright blue bricks of natural indigo. see how this photo was made on snapchat!: colerise #dubai #litely 4d

colerise this is one of the most beautiful coastal towns i’ve ever seen, one of the "five lands” of Le Cinque Terre that dot the western coast of Italy. in other news, i’ll be taking over the @googlemaps account today, posting photos from around the world to celebrate it’s 10th birthday. kinda geeking out since it’s one of those apps i use everyday & it's saved my butt a few times. no idea how I got around 11 years ago... #cinqueterre #maps10 #litely 1w

colerise this man was incredible - a local bedouin named Jumah, showing me the cooking tools of Neolithic humans who lived 9,600 years ago. that's back when people first decided it may be a good idea to ditch their nomadic lifestyle and settle in one place - to farm, to build homes - that little thing we call civilization. #feynan #shareyourjordan #litely 2w

colerise sunset at the dana nature reserve, southwest jordan. met a local family of 8 who, after staring at this pale new yorker running around with all his camera gear, welcomed me into their tent for tea and asked if I'd photograph their children playing with pistachio shells. so human and warm, even with the language barrier. they offered a plate of the most incredible homemade breaded desert as payment, before heading off by truck, all of them waving furiously and calling out the one English word they felt comfortable saying loudly. "Byeeeeee!" #dana #shareyourjordan #litely 2w

colerise imagine being an hour old. one. hour. for us humans, it takes us YEARS to walk. but this little goat was giving it his best shot at 65 minutes. hiking 14km from a high altitude nature reserve, to the crucible of modern civilization (which I'll explain in the next post) we encountered a group of Bedouin goat herders who had just helped a mother goat give birth an hour before we arrived. what an honor to welcome him to the world. can someone create an account for this guy!? #feynan #shareyourjordan #litely 2w

colerise this man is my hero. after riding around Wadi Rum, taking photos all day, my favorite lens fell from my pack. into soft sand. somewhere in the vastness of the desert. as I'm shooting sunset, this Bedouin man appears out of nowhere, his hands behind his back and a half smile on his face. "Are you missing a piece of your camera?" I don't know how he found it, or how he found me, but I'll leave that to the magic of the region, and the kindness of the locals. #wadirum #shareyourjordan #litely 2w

colerise woke up super early to have Petra to myself for a while. this was taken further down the canyon from the treasury as the light creeped in. the local bedouin caretaker sitting in the sun shows you how truly massive these structures are. #petra #shareyourjordan #litely 3w

colerise made a friend on a hike in Petra, up thousands of stairs through a canyon that leads to one of the many structures carved into the cliffs. unfortunately he didn't fit in my backpack. watch the editing process on snapchat: colerise #petra #shareyourjordan #litely 3w

colerise Venus over Petra, shining through moonlit clouds. I had the site to myself for 15 minutes before the crowds were let in, so imagine being surrounded by candles with nothing but the sound of the wind and the wild dogs reverberating through the canyon. Unforgettable. Catch the editing process on snapchat! #petra #shareyourjordan #litely 3w

colerise spent the day exploring crusader castles built in 1100’s, on grounds with layered history dating back to the iron age! headed to Petra next - for the behind the scenes, follow me on snapchat: colerise #karakcastle #shareyourjordan #litely 3w

colerise Running through Wadi Rum, one of the most epic locations both historically and geologically - from Lawrence of Arabia to the natural land bridges and canyons. Spent the day exploring the valley by trucks and camels and the night sharing tea and smoking shishah (hookah) with the local bedouins. You have to see the sunsets here.

colerise floating high in the lowest place on earth. the dead sea is 9.6 times saltier than the ocean, making you buoyant enough to comfortably check the stock market without getting the pages (or your camera) wet. to get the behind the scenes, add me on snapchat: colerise #jordan #deadsea #litely 4w

colerise here’s one of a few photos you may see in Apple’s latest iPhone campaign, which is both incredibly humbling to be a part of & incredibly exciting when considering how far mobile photography has come. not only can we take photos on par with a standalone camera that cost $1000 a decade ago, we can professionally edit them and instantly share them with a global audience… all from a device that shows us what satellites are currently flying overhead and reminds us to call grandma on her birthday. #nutso #ShotOniPhone #litely 1mon
