The Wailing Wall, Jerusalem expresses the devotion of the believers who come here to pray. Several formally dressed Orthodox Jewish men join with others in modern dress to cry out to their God. Some will press notes into the cracks; others will fold their messages into the shrubs that grow in the shade of these ancient stones.
The impulse of the visitor is not to intrude on the passion of these pilgrims. In The Wailing Wall, Jerusalem I have tried to keep a respectful distance from the faithful, while rendering the light and drama of this historic location.
