Three summers ago, I got my very first digital SLR. It was my first summer in Washington, DC and I wanted to take advantage of the opportunity to develop my photography skills and photograph some of the most beautiful treasures America has.

Two years ago, I created a photo and film project for a college course encompassing some of the pictures I had taken that Fall. The video incorporated an excerpt of Hans Zimmer’s track “Time” from the Inception soundtrack. The final project in the class was referred to as our ‘Magnum Opus.’

The video is still something I am extremely proud to have created. However, with some additional work, I have achieved something that can truly be called a ‘Magnum Opus.’ The video above uses the complete music track and showcases just a handful of the greatest photos I have taken over the past two years.

I hope you enjoy it.
