With Lent upon us, here is a church in the Holy Land - from my digitalized slides archive. Now in stunning BW. Heh.

“The miracles of the church seem to me to rest not so much upon faces or voices or healing power coming suddenly near to us from afar off, but upon our perceptions being made finer, so that for a moment our eyes can see and our ears can hear what is there about us always.” (Willa Cather)

My wife & I are trying to find an interesting group to go to the Holy Land in November, now that there seems to be a "sort of" cease-fire. Great composition on this one!

@vu@granby - Wolfgang: If it's safe to go, don't miss it. An incredible experience is what it is.

This is really beautiful VF, The Holy land is a place I've always wanted to go. Lucky you :)

@MaryB: I went with a group of ministers; I'd love to go back sometime and bring my wife and some friends.

The architecture is remarkable, really a piece of art.
It works perfectly in B&W. Being able to visit history like this is wonderful.
