Jerusalem Break

The natural Jerusalem stone of Mamilla mall, the Orthodox Jewish gentleman in traditional black garb, I saw this scene as I was walking by and although it was a bright sunny day immediately envisioned it in black and white.

I have a challenge for you. I’m think of submitting this in a competition but can’t think of a unique title for it. Any suggestions?

  6. Perfect in black and white, Edith. Fabulous contrasts and his expression is contemplative.

  7. Lovely portrait; perfect in mono (of course!) but his stance and quizzical expression really add to the character.
