Pictorial Library of the Bible Lands


I have often used pictures from the Pictorial Library of the Bible Lands (PLBL) in the classroom. But last summer I used it in a way that I had not done previously. I was in Israel teaching a group about the Bible and the Bible lands, a group that was also very interested in photography. So in my preparation for our field trips to various sites I used the PLBL to help plan the trip and to help inform my picture-taking suggestions to the group. Now I have been to Israel a number of times prior to this trip but PLBL still proved to be a valuable resource in this regard. I was glad that I had decided to load the entire PLBL to my laptop before leaving home. If you teach the Bible, plan to go to the Bible lands, or have been there before, I would suggest you check this resource out (go here).

Since I'll be going to Israel and Turkey next year, I'd be very interested in reading some of your suggestions as to photography over there!

Hi David,

Thanks for your response. I had not thought about doing a follow-up post on photography suggestions, but you have given me something to think about. So stay tuned.
