Photographer's Note

Surveyor working with theodolite at Nazareth. According to the bible Nazareth is the hometown of Jesus, Mary and Joseph.
The large church in the background is the basilica of the Annunciation. The church was established at the site where, according to Roman Catholic tradition, the Annunciation took place. The current church was constructed in 1969 over the site of an earlier Byzantine-era church. The lower level contains the Grotto of the Annunciation, believed to be the remains of the childhood home of Mary.
I took this photo because the man, wearing a kippah on his head, is working in the same profession as I do.
Scanned from original colour-slide.
