Mata Lal Devi Mandir – Amritsar’s “Ladies Temple”

Mata Lal Devi Mandir, or in its common name “The Ladies Temple” in Amritsar, displays an abundance of goddess figures and pictures, as well as an effeminate Buddha and is dedicated to a 20th century bespectacled female guru reputed to live on fruit and milk. Atmosphere is much more relaxed than in the Golden Temple. A good tuktuk driver is essential for a great rambling day around the city.

Sunrays in mist. Eilat's rainforest. Israel

Rainforest in Extreme Desert

On an abandoned army outpost in extreme desert, three friends created a one-of-a-kind rainforest and oraganic botanical garden with 1000 differnet plants and trees that grow on desalinized water disseminated in pulses of mist. Soil is fertilized by compost alone.

Beach scene, Tel Aviv

Jerusalem’s Alternative

Tiger pants and tight leather,
Firm breasts over high heels
Wafts of air picking up mini skirts
Touching soft flesh
Coiled into ringed bellybuttons.

Waves and fogs

Freak Wave

You came onto my life
Like a freak wave
Everything rose,
Then crashed over the deck

Colonialism,

White Privilege,

Slavery.

The Crucifixion,

The Book of Joshua,

The Settlements.

Galleries

Since a big part of this website is dedicated to world traveling, this collection of photo galleries is focused on the beauty, variety and creativity of the Land of Israel. An emphasis on the desert will soon be balanced with more pictures from the North and Center.
