Focus: Sleepy in Jerusalem

Here’s a small preview of what’s to come in my August Street Photo Gallery. I captured this guy as he was sleeping his way through the narrow streets in the old city of Jerusalem.

The Depth of Field isn’t extremely shallow, but still shallow enough to lead the eyes to the boy and the two women.  Theoretically I could have shot this at a different aperture to blur out the background even more, but here the background also creates the scene. Sometimes when you’re shooting street photography, you just have to be quick to get the image you want and then there’s no second chance.
