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.

Excellent archive and still in good conditon after almost 35 years! Man at work, a quite interesting street shot his concentration and positioning make for me and what more, the dash of his vivid red makes him the centre of attraction in stark contrast and nothing to distract this view. It's timely simple daily shot that works photographically. Well done.
