People performing their morning prayers at the Western Wall in Jerusalem.This photo is shot early morning during sunrise where a group of jews perform a prayer called Shacharit. Observant jews pray 3 times a day (women only pray once). The first prayer of the day is called Shacharit and must take place before 1/3 of the day is over. The other two prayers are Mincha in the afternoon (must take place before sunset) and Maariv in the evening/night after sunset.
As always you can click the photo to see a large version. It might look compressed in shitty browsers such as Internet Explorer 8 (this blog’s theme is not supported in older versions of Internet Explorer). If it looks weird just click the photo again and you’ll be able to see a correctly displayed version, but the best solution is to change your browser to Opera, Firefox or Chrome.
I’m not much into photos of plants & flowers – normally I find them boring, but today I felt like taking some photos and after I came home from work I neither had the time or the energy to go on a motive hunt outside.
So, I had to improvise:
Useless trivia: This plant is actually the son/daughter of a “mother plant”. The mother has also produced 3 other babies – one which I gave to a friend.
According to Wikipedia Aloe Vera “are widely used in the cosmetics and alternative medicine industries, being marketed as variously having rejuvenating, healing or soothing properties. There is, however, little scientific evidence of the effectiveness or safety of A. vera extracts for either cosmetic or medicinal purposes, and what positive evidence is available is frequently contradicted by other studies. Medical uses of aloe vera are being investigated as well.

The title pretty much explains everything: Kids playing football in Jerusalem.
I don’t know if there’s anything more to say about this photo…?

I did some research for a photo project I’m planning, which means I had to take a few test shots. Here’s one of them:
For this project I’ll might need some artificial lighting, but the finished result is supposed to be dark, so too much light will ruin the atmosphere.
The light depends on which direction I’ll end up shooting. This photo is shot in the darkest end of the building, using only natural light, but when I’ll arrange the photo shoot we might end up photographing in the brighter end as well.
The plan was to finish this project today, but I need a helping hand and my friend was busy so it got postponed.
Stay tuned for more!
