The Western Wall, also known as the Kotel, is the holiest site in Judaism. Located in Jerusalem, it’s the western retaining wall of the Second Jewish Temple. This is where the Jews have turned to prayer for centuries.
On any given day the Kotel is full of both Orthodox and Secular Jews and while there is tight security to get in, its open to all religions. I always find visiting the Kotel a moving experience. As I was waiting for my husband and son I saw a group of people coming towards me and took this image. The gentleman in the forefront is what caught my attention and when processing this image I wanted to convey a sense of deliberate movement towards this very important site.
I processed the image in Lightroom including converting it to black and white and then brought it into Photoshop in order to create a multiple exposure.
