Shutterbug journo Major Garrett tweets beautiful pics from Petra, Jordan; Obama tours [photos]

Skip them? Don’t be shirty (as Major would say)! Major Garrett started posting his photos of the Petra, Jordan, trip yesterday.

Other journos joined in; They were there awaiting President Obama’s tour.

Major’s photos were a hit: The power of Twitter lets us all tour Petra with him.

Promised, and delivered. This morning, he took to Twitter to post his amazing Nikon shots.

Gorgeous shots. Thank you for taking us along on your trip, Major Garrett!

    Coincidentally, I just watched a documentary on Petra. I soooo want to go there!

    Nikon needs to compensate Major for the product placement. I’m also a Nikon and Pentax shooter and am now wanting to go to Jordan as well.

    Hey Major, you know the Holy Grail is in there right? At least that’s what Sean Connery told me.

    Enjoy it while it lasts. If radical Muslims get a hold of it, it’s gone.
