                           Experimentation is defined as the action or process of trying out new ideas, methods or activities. Back in early 2021 I wrote in my blog how photography was no longer a fun activity. To counter this feeling I started to experiment with different genres of photography the most people would not attempt.  Each photo below was the result of many hundreds of photos, learning the process, making minor adjustments and repeating until I finally found something that I liked.  

The cross of the chapel’s crucifix is made to look like a tree, with two trunks under the altar representing the 10 tribes of Israel and the two tribes of Judah. As it continues up, surrounding the tabernacle, the Israel trunk is dead, but “this dead limb of Israel that’s broken off becomes a crossbeam for the Tree of Life,” said Fr. Kleczewski. From the limb is a single leaf sprouting to life representing the Gentiles. The Judah branch continues and bears 12 leaves, representing the Apostles, and three golden apples at the top that represent the Holy Trinity.
