….wild is the wind…creative freedom is the seed….
So the last few days… I was quite busy but also a bit worried about some of the people I know in Isreal and Palestine. I hope they are okay.
While the Governments of Isreal and Palestine bombed one another, we were all concerned for our friends in Isreal AND Palestine! I can’t get hold of Mohammad Alhaj but left him a message letting him know I would like to reblog his first photographs he ever took in 1999 about some Palestinian prisoners in Isreal. 🙂 I figured, being a consummate professional, if I hinted that I might (not that I will but that I might) violate his copyrights, he will show up to let me know he is alive and well, come hell or highwaters! 🙂 So I am putting these 4 images out and see how long it will take for him to respond!
hahhaha. It took him 3 hrs! hahhaa.
Cheer up Mohammad, notice I (c) every image and put a link to your website!
But seriously, I find your photographs beautiful and very sad…it is of course Very Artistic…it is just that …well, in..1999 Mohammad took these photos, and 2012, there’s still the same drama, it really makes me want to ask:
“Isreal and Palestine: Does History have to keep on repeating? Can’t we try something different?”
