Finisterre

This photo is one of my favorites from Kiawah Island (and I’ve taken a lot of photos there). I think what I really like is that it suggests a story to be told. A story about someone riding to the end of the world.

On the Camino de Santiago, that place is Finisterre (from the Latin, meaning “end of the world”). There is tradition for pilgrims on the Camino to burn an article of clothing if they hike to Finisterre (about 90 km further after reaching Santiago). This symbolizes the transformation that occur along The Way. Pilgrimage is about seeking transformation by encountering God (burning clothes not required).

El Camino

This photo was taken during our pilgrimage in northern Spain five years ago, El Camino de Santiago. That pilgrimage was the start in this blog; a way to share the times and places where I saw God “along the way.”

El Camino is a journey that begins before you arrive in Spain, maybe even before you even begin your planning. And it certainly does not end when you arrive in Santiago. For me, this photo journal is but one way that the journey continues.
