Jerusalem

Jerusalem was the major focus of my trip. I can't imagine a more spiritual city in the world. Just being in the city and walking the streets filled me with a sense of something special. I'm not sure how I want to present the photos I shot there. I don't like mixing color and b/w in the same blog posts, so they will be separate. So far I've divided my work into the different neighborhoods/areas - the Old City (Damascus Gate and the Arab Quarter, the Hurva Synagogue, Jaffa Gate, Kotel and Jewish Quarter), City Center and Mamilla Mall, and Machane Yehudah (the Jewish shuk). The blog posts may be a collection of shots from various neighborhoods rather than each post focusing on a separate area.

So for starters......
