There are vacations and vacations.  Experiences and experiences.  Sometimes words cannot adequately express an interior movement, a mystery or a feeling.  This pilgrimage in the holy land falls under such a category.  Although I did have some time to practice photography, the main intent of this trip was spiritual and experiential.  I hope this images can help you find yourself in a mystery, greater then yourself.

I also had the possibility of visiting a large number of shrines, which had some magnificent and unique architecture.  Sometimes it is worthwhile to look up!
