Day 10 in Jerusalem

old-city-001.jpgYou find these mannequins in markets all over town, sporting the latest fashion in hijabs. I’ve wanted this shot
ever since my last visit here 2 years ago, and I think I might have gotten it this time.

old-city-002.jpgTaking cues from American Relics, my photo essay on American History as a spectacle, I’ve been photographing a lot of tourism scenes in Jerusalem, from the same perspective and style. I only spent about 5 minutes with the scene, and this is as close as I came to getting the shot. It’s almost there, but not quite. Hopefully I’ll have time to revisit the scene and get the foreground background interaction I’m looking for.

i’m an uncle

Despite the bulging belly of my single-serving airplane friend limiting me to two hours of sleep on the 10 hour flight from philly, I’ve only slept for 4 hours since yesterday’s arrival. It’s 4:30 am Middle East time now (that’s 7 hours ahead of you NC kids), so it looks like I’ll be doing the same tonight.

Sleep schedules aside, my brother made me an uncle 2 months ago! Here’s Baby Khalid!

The family: posing, taking, preparing and rocking.
