I’ve been in Israel for several days now. It’s fairly overwhelming to be in a place where you’re constantly exposed to about 5000 years of history. Sorting it all out is difficult. But it’s obviously a special place, the crossroads of the world, really.
At Hell’s Gate (an ancient temple area of Greek influence, dedicated to Pan) in Caesarea Phillipi, I had some fun photographing children from a local kibbutz. Seeing so many historical sites is fascinating, but photos of piles of rocks gets old. It was enjoyable to see some life amongst the ruins.
These two images are from the Sea of Galilee. It’s a fascinating area, with so many historical, meaningful places within walking distance of each other. The area is very hilly, and I frequently imagine Jesus walking and boating about, disciples in tow.
