More Rainy Day Photos in the Old City

I wish I could have photographed this man a second before, when he was positioned in front of the electricity box. Unfortunately, someone was in my way (definite disadvantage when you go on a photo walk–everyone wants the same shot). I thought the shot would look better with a sepia tone and hoped it would minimize the white box behind the subject with the graffiti.

Typical souvenir shop in the shuk. I wanted to create an Aladdin’s cave of treasures atmosphere, so I underexposed this image slightly.

Hat display. Again, a lot of competition for the same shot, so you may see this elsewhere.

Man in passageway. I rendered this image in black and white to increase the contrast between the dark arches and the light. Since it was a rainy day, there wasn’t a whole lot of light to work with.

This photo of an alley in the shuk was taken at a low angle. It’s a good idea to wear old clothes if you’re shooting in a muddy environment because sometimes you do have to get down on the ground to get a certain perspective. I liked the contrast of the woman’s orange coat and the gray paving stones, as well as the lines of the ramp stones leading to the subject.

Tower of David photographed from the roof of the Petra Hotel.
