Acutally I was looking for an image that would fit the TOM but as it goes the theme search is also a reason to get lost in the many images that were built over the years in my files.
Well I liked this image ... and here it is. What I find very cool is the tiny crosses to the far right, a symbol for the many relegions that are omni-present in the heart of Jerusalem. I think it belonged to a shop that sold souvenirs.
I have no idea if these women were sisters, friends or daugther/mother.
24 hours since its upload: Not one single view :-) Are you sure we should keep this going until the spring time --- yes haha.
7 days since its upload: 2 views, 2 comments. I ask again: Really, you want to keep this going until the spring time?
I am still alive but was visiting my mother(96 years old) and no computer .... So we can wait till.... the real end
How dare you take picture of people without asking their approval?! Nice interpretation and the small crosses are a wonderfull detail
BabaCam (2019/11/12 15:55:16): By the way: A week after its upload this image has still gotten 2 single views. Not that I think it is that good but it is also not that bad either. I have seen worse images - haha.
It shows that spring time is a long time with not much action.BabaCam (2019/11/07 11:00:34): Here and there I have asked but rarely ever. If we want to keep track about how our societey changes in what they wear etc. ... and look at these images in 20 years to compare, we need to be free to make images.
I only had a problem once and it was here in Zurich in front of the Parlimanet. Although I was only standing there with my camera (I wanted to photograph the river) without pointing at somebody, a woman came over saying I was one of these left-wing journalists and that I should go away otherwise she would call the police. Ha?
A somehow "intense", enthralling, photo. The b/w version here was the right choice! One really can imagine the hustle and bustle around these two women. They somehow seem to be "human islands" in the crowd around them.
Herzliche Grüße aus dem nasskalten Westfalen! November vom Feinsten ... Brrr!
