Fan the Flame of Faith

I captured this portrait of an Eastern Orthodox priest in Samaria, The Holy Land. He is caretaker of Jacob's Well, also known as The Well of Sychar, yes, the same Well of Samaria where the John 4 encounter took place.

The priest was melting wax to seal small quantities of water from the well in small ceramic pottery jars so we could bring them home. 

I have taken portraits much of my life, nevertheless, I must admit none have moved me anymore than photographing this image. 

I hope the portrait inspires you in some way and serves to fan the flame of faith within your own soul.
