It was a very busy year for me...not because I was shooting so much, but because I opened a gallery where I have been selling my work, mostly panoramic prints of Israel.

One of the few projects I had time and energy for was the On the Way to Sulha Peace Project. This is a non-political peace gathering of the Children of Abraham trying to bring peace between us on a very personal level. Many artists, musicians, cooks and people of the Jewish, Muslim, Christian, and Buddhist faiths, and of many, many nationalities gather for a few days and do workshops, play music, create art, talk, sing, eat and generally have a good time in the name of relating to each other on a heart level.

This pano is the only one I shot at this year's gathering (there are more stills on the Sulha website). It is a coffee seminar led by Ahed Izhiman, whose family has been in the coffee importing and roasting business in Jerusalem since Ottoman times. In many ways this pano expresses the basic feeling of the gathering. People hanging out, doing what people enjoy doing together; in this case drinking and learning about coffee.
