Jerusalem: Holy Land

Come Ye of All Faiths - Late light on the Holy City of Jerusalem: Pentax K-5, Pentax smc DA 70mm f/2.4 Limited

Please click on the images to see larger versions. Cindy and I only had two days in Jerusalem, but we tried to make the most of it.  We spent almost all of it in the Old City, visiting the four religious quarters and talking with the people.  We especially enjoyed walking the “Via Dolorosa,” literally translated into “The path of suffering.”  Supposedly, this is the exact path Jesus walked when he was condemned to die by crucifixion.  The Via Dolorosa is marked by several “stations,” each describing a separate event that happened to Jesus.  For example, at station V, Jesus was helped by Simon of Cyrene who took the cross and carried it for Him.  I hope you enjoy these samples.  To see the entire set, please click HERE.
