Stooped


An old man in tattered clothes in Nachlaot neighborhood of Jerusalem was loading his cart with old stuff a woman had brought out to him.
To recycle?
To sell?
To distribute to those in need (even more in need than he)?

This photo is filled with emotion, and there is an element of sadness to it, for me, that I can't explain.

It's both lovely poignant.

The picture and commentary are very thought provoking and quite profound. Well done, Dina.

Very touching, Dina.

Please visit my Wednesday post; I put a lot of my heart into it and would like you to feel it.

Lovely photo, such a shame he's in the shadow, I'd like to see him more clearly. Love the colours in this shot.

This is a moving photo that tells all kinds of stories and evokes all kinds of emotions.

One of my irritating habits is trying to figure out what people are up to. I love this photograph and your questions.

This looks like a scene that could have been played any time in the last several hundred years.
