Do it alone by gilad Do it alone by gilad
In the darkest night
In the dying hours of the city
When the streets are like flames
And your body escapes your thoughts

You connect with your innerself
You walk your fears away
Find courage to face yourself
To contend the resaults

Maybe it's all in your head
The world that hates you,
Is the one you created
Maybe it's time to change your world

To do it alone


*****

Jerusalem, Israel.
At the Jaffa gate on forgiveness time, during the week before Yom Kippur, the jews dedicate to saying forgiveness to god and eachother, on whatever bad they have done.

10mm lens
1/2 second panning.

Gilad, I wish I could save your poetry so that it would pop-up in my favorites. It is beautiful!
This picture is beautiful too. A wonderful combination, poem and picture. Thank you for sharing them with us.

i just...love this. the image alone is brilliant, as is the poem. put together, its just astounding. i can't tell you how much i admire your ability to capture an image that says so much, and then enhance it even more by writing some of it down.
