the jewish holydays are coming in a short while.
A religous man in using the "Shofar" as a religous act, as many will do in the upcoming Jewish new yaer - "Rosh haShana"
It's a spontanious portrait taken in the streets of old Jaffa. It was shot from a low angle to use the sky as background.

Thanks and don't forget to "Full View"

Simply love it. The stunning angle, lovely use of the sky as the background, colouring, everything! It just has that timeless feel about it, which is what I love best in photos. It could be a painting for the time of Christ or a photo from today. 15/10 stars

Stylish photo! I like shofar, GYHWH's holy instrument. By the way, what does the hebrew text says on his cap (or kippah)?

Moreover, could it be possible to have this print a little bit larger (approx. width: 60cm - 70cm) in the deviant shop?

It would look good on my living room's wall :)

It's these small things you see that make you realize things about childhood you've never considered before. Your photos really have made me miss my childhood in Israel, and appreciate it as well.
