A journey, after all, neither begins in the instant we set out, nor ends when we have reached our door step once again. It starts much earlier and is really never over, because the film of memory continues running on inside of us long after we have come to a physical standstill. Indeed, there exists something like a contagion of travel, and the disease is essentially incurable.”

I was looking for something on Google and came across your photos of Israel taken in 2006/2007, so just had to find you to let you know how impressed I was with them.

I see you have also been to South Africa (my home country), and photographed our wildlife. Come again - we'd love to have you back!
