Missing Jerusalem

I’d wanted to go to Jerusalem since I was in preschool, but it didn’t happen until Memorial Day weekend this year. I loved it even more than I can articulate. As this shiksa says:

May I never let go of the feeling of experiencing Jerusalem for the first time.

I took more than 700 photos in Jerusalem, which sounds like a lot until you consider how many of them were different angles of the same scene. Okay, maybe it’s a lot no matter what. I just wanted to hold on, as the shiksa put it, to what it was like. Of course, there’s no way to do that.

Here are a few of my favorite shots.

I can’t wait to return.
