Old Man, Old City

There were only a few hours that were available to wander through the back streets of the Old City in Jeruslam. The sounds and sights added to the overwhelmng feeling that before me, potentially millions of people from all walks of life had walked these streets, I stood looking at the surrounding buildings and stared into a darkened room struggling to make out the lone figure sitting in a chair. As I entered I noticed the room was filled full of rugs and towards the rear was a younger man in the middle of a sale with a couple.

The Old Man

I approached the old man and asked, as pointed to my camera, if he minded if I took his photo, he nodded his head yes and I took one photo, just one. I showed him the photo and in a fleeting moment we had connected. As time was short, I left in a hurry in search of another photo oppotunity.

Going the extra step, being a little curious can lead to unexpected photo opportunties.

Happy Shooting
