This photo came out surprisingly nicely. This was shot over the Seine as I was walking over towards the Eiffel Tower at sunset.

He would not tell me his name.
He would not tell me his dreams.
I found him at a pro-Hezbollah rally in Paris. I asked if I could take a photograph of his interesting face. He tapped his ear, looked sideways, and then said I could take his picture even though “you have the blue eyes.”
I didn’t have my tripod this day in Paris, so I took a lot of handheld shots, most of which still turned out okay. I really tend to rely on my tripod now… sort of a crutch. Anyway, here is one of Notre Dame.
This is Ahmed.
Ahmed’s dream is to see Israel wiped off the face of the map. With dark eyes, he stares out across a sea of men yelling “Praise Allah”.
Ahmed is currently attending a Hezbollah rally in Paris, holding a poster of a burned Palastinian child.
This comes from a series of portraits I have in a set over on Flickr:
I had a hellish layover in Paris because of plane troubles, so I grabbed a train into Paris for the evening. Right when I came out of the subway, I was in the middle of an anti-Isreal pro-Hisbollah rally… That is not the picture below, obviously… these are all happy white people eating grapes and talking about how nice the 35 hour work week is.
