  1. there ought
    to be more
    reminding us
    to be joyous,
    to mull over
    to plunge
    into love, to hold
    a breath longer –
    there ought
    to be time
    stretched out
    for this,
    and even
    then, still
    a little more

  2. Nice entry. Making friends. 🙂

  3. fantastic photo! where was this taken? – rita

  4. magnificent shot there .

  5. The woman seems to be holding a palm frond that Catholics wave during Palm Sunday. If she IS catholic, then she and the man are of different faiths. That would add an even deeper meaning to this wonderful photo. 🙂

    • thank you for dropping by and commenting. she is actually holding a lulav. during the Jewish holiday of Sukkot, you see many Hasidic Jewish men offering both the lulav and the etrog, for you to shake and smell and say blessings.

      • Oh, thanks for clearing that up. That is a beautiful tradition. No wonder there’s such delight in that lady’s face and you captured it at just the right moment. 🙂

  6. thank you! i also watched her shake the lulav and smell the citrus.

  7. Great capture!! That’s a great opportunity!

  8. I love this photo. We shake the lulav and etrog every year, and as far as I know, the blessing lasts through the year. One of my favorite traditions! AND, you caught it beautifully. 🙂

  9. That’s got to be a new version of the lightsaber she’s holding. Nice photo!

  10. I am glad I found your PhotoBlog. I love your photos and the messages you send. well done. I am following you.

  11. Not sure if that’s going to be friends… No eye contact 😉 Nice shot!

  12. Да уж… Жизнь – как вождение велосипеда. Чтобы сохранить равновесие, ты должен двигаться.
