Wow. I returned on Friday after shooting for 11 days in Israel, documenting a trip for Taylor University. I am forever changed. I had a friend tell me a few days ago, “Everyone keeps saying there’s no words to describe the trip. Well I want to hear about it. Someone better start coming up with words!”

It made me laugh because it’s so true. Where do I start? Because I may not stop talking.

I’ll start with the basics. It was a visual feast for this photographer. There are hundreds of pictures I could have proudly shown, but I think this will give you a little glimpse…
