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.
