Abbey of Gethsemani

Abbey of Gethsemani

The wife and I went on a little journey to the Abbey of Gethsemani.  The well known author Thomas Merton spend 24 years as a monk at this abbey. The land is located in Trappist, KY just outside of New Haven, KY. We wanted to have a few days of fun, this was day number one. I thought it would be fun to carry only my Mamiya 645 camera with one lens the entire weekend. I shot with the standard 80mm lens and Fuji NPC 160 film. The image above is the chapel in the Abbey.

While walking along the Statues trail near the Abbey of Gethsemani, there is this tiny little shack with rosary beads and implements of prayer.
