Another Place & Time: Arizona Monastery

by in arizona, church, USA

This winter I visited my parents in Casa Grande, Arizona. They took me one sunny afternoon to visit St Anthony’s Monastery where Greek Orthodox monks work and pray. The desert grounds are dotted with palm trees, olive groves and orange trees; almost like Italy (or Greece, I guess!) but actually America.

The sky was very blue that day and the sun strong, which made for nice contrast in these black and white images.

  1. From casa grande real estate:

    I just moved here last year. There is a lot to do in Arizona. Much more then what I expected there to be. I have signed up with several hiking groups and go hiking every weekend. You just have to know where to go and you wont be bored. Golf is another plentiful sport here and of course swimming in the summer time. I want to visit all the ghost towns, Arizona must have many.
