Three weeks in Israel and Jordan... so many memories. Visiting Israel was a truly spiritual experience. I fell in love with Jerusalem -- everything is built from Jerusalem stone, a beautiful creamy sandstone. My favorite photographs from the whole trip are of photographs of the Jerusalem markets in the Old City and its winding passages, colorful spices and shops crowded with trinkets. In Jordan, we got to see Wadi Rum and Petra. Petra has been on my bucket list for at least 25 years and I think I must have taken over 500 photographs of Petra itself.
