In a previous post in this blog I mistook a Greek Orthodox Bishop for being an Armenian Priest. I don’t want to do the same mistake again, so this is just a photo of a priest, a bishop or whatever. He’s probably Greek… I’m not sure, but I can say for sure that he was in Jerusalem at the time that this photo was taken.
It’s a long time ago since I’ve visited Jerusalem, so you can consider this street portrait as an entry for «Paula’s Thursday’s Special: ‘traces of the past’».
It was very nice of him to pose like this. This is a fabulous street portrait in an ancient setting. Very fitting, Max. Thank you.
Yes, it was very nice of him to pose for a photo. As a photographer I enjoy it when people are happy to pose.

Shouldn’t a Cardinal know the difference? 🙂 Nice of him to pose for you.
Yes, he was a good sport this guy.
wonderful street portrait!
Thank you very much.
I’m sure that you could have seen that same scene years ago also. That type of priest clothing we rarely see in Australia anymore. A thing of the past. Lovely photograph.
Thanks. We never see them in Norway. When it comes to religious clothing, we only see hijabs and shit like that.
That is probably the same here now as well. All of our christian clerics seem to wear mufti.
He looks as though he recognized a Cardinal when he saw one, giving you the holy version high 5!
Haha, “holy version high 5”, brilliant! 😀
Whoever he is it’s a great portrait.
Thank you Richard. heading to Italy this weekend and I’m hoping to take some decent shots there.
Splendid and unusual portrait!
I don’t know the answer but it is an wonderful portrait. Patti’s comment says it all 😀
Thanks. Patti’s ‘holy version high 5’ made me laugh!
this is how Eastern Orthodox monks look like, at least they look like this in Bg, though the crosses and the hats may be different in different orthodox churches, dunno… you can easily see them here, as we have the highest eastern orthodox cathedral on the Balkans built right in the center of Sofia 🙂
such a nice portrait, so great of him to pose for you!! 🙂
