The Pavilion at Sholom Park
The Hebrew word for "peace" is shalom. The meaning is quite broad, reflecting the kind of peace where all is in perfect order, where harmony rules among people and the creation. It can also be spelled "sholom."
Sholom was the word used by Sidney Colen when he built this park some years back. Sholom Park is a very peaceful place; a place to walk and meditate, a place where you can let the cares of the world wash away, a place that surrounds you with quiet and stillness and beauty.
"Photographers deal in things which are continually vanishing and when they have vanished there is no contrivance on earth which can make them come back again." — Henri Cartier-Bresson
