Being passed ove

Exodus 9-12

Great Passover story this a.m.

Via Crucis - A Photographer Before the Cross

I have journeyed through the abandoned granite quarries of Cape Ann, Massachusetts, and Barre, VT for over 12 years.

Spring 2011 brought me to walk through a single quarry in Rockport, MA; I received the following images which are presented here in video form. The musical accompaniment is by Sister Marie Keyrouz, singing: Al Yawm Ulliqa (dieu Est Suspendu - The Lord Is Suspended)
