You have captured well thesmiling expression of the soldier. The point of view is showing the détails and the colours of his costume. The good luminosity is enhancng the colours. Have a nice day.

Was this taken in Las Vegas? Due to favorable court regarding free speech, now we have so many people dress up as all kinds of character on the world famous Las Vegas Strip and downtown asking for money. Nice capture of this dude with good details. Well done, tfs.

this is a very cute and surprising scene, you captured and framed it wonderfully. I like very much the placement of the "soldier" and how you adjusted the frame to his posture. It's interesting and amusing to follow his smiling glance diagonally to the bottom right corner, to discover the doggy and the meaning of this composition. The colours are great and sharpness is excellent. I love the contradictions. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely weekend,

It´s really great,that you captured a part of this dog for providing us the right aspect of the scene and the expression of this Roman soldier.
Wish You a nice weekend

Just goes to show, it's not necessary to travel to distant lands to find something of interest. I'm guessing this pup wasn't quite expecting to see a Roman soldier roaming his streets, and that's what makes this fun and catching. I think his smile conveys well the lively atmosphere of Purim. Quick thinking to take this picture, and more proof that it's not always the camera that makes a photo. Now, keep your eyes open, you never know what may show up next. :) Enjoy the rest of the weekend. Take good care.

You're capturing well this scene by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see a man who wears the uniform of "Roman-soldier" in the sidewalk. It's also impressive in the protection of helmet and body, and red Mantle of the back. And, his look watching the dog draws out a gentleness, even if he is soldier.
mirosu (15156) 2014-03-15 20:45
Excellent photo, superb arrangement. The Roman soldier and the dog, what a superb combination. The whole perfectly framed in portrait format.
Very well done
Wish you a nice Sunday.
Waylim (25368) 2014-03-15 21:52
very funny shot in a way, When I see people in this costume, it makes me think of scene in the movie where they fought and kill each other. and saw only the dogs head, it makes me think of in the movie where they have cut the enemy head off. I was almost afraid to open this image :)
It is like this man has travel through the time machine into the future :)

Hello Ike, my yesterday neighbor
You went without camera but at least with a cell phone. funny view of this Roman soldier. Is this brave warrior afraid of the dog? Lovely scene. Have nice holidays
Royaldevon (33007) 2014-03-16 1:53
Good Moring Ike,
A good job you had camera of sorts with you for this unexpected encounter! I was at a Roman Fort last week and saw nothing like this! I can see, he is going to stand no nonsense from that dog!
Actually, the dogs head is important in making a good diagonal lead to the Roman soldier. A nicely composed shot, especially for one that was so impromptu!
Have a lovely Sunday,
COSTANTINO (59261) 2014-03-16 2:55

lousat (81646) 2014-03-16 3:02

mesutilgim (88484) 2014-03-16 3:06
Hello dear Ike,
I missed this wonderfull capture !
What a great observation and perfect timing.
Most probably his commander would have hung him down if he would have seen this scenery !
TFS and have a nice weekend
jhm (143445) 2014-03-16 4:34
Almost not to see that you used, an cellphone picture for these picture.
The colours make these picture very attractive.
Excellent composition, nice captured.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice Sunday,
Cricri (110627) 2014-03-16 12:27
Ah oui c'est ce Weekend que les personnes qui le veulent ce déguise, je me demande comment tu était déguisée :-), amusante cette image de ce soldat romain qui semble émerveiller en regardant le petit chien comme s'il n'en avait jamais vu :-))
J'espère que tu a passer un très beau weekend
papagolf21 (89706) 2014-03-16 12:34
Bonsoir, cher Ike,
Ce n'est pas commun de se trouver face à un soldat romain !
Belle réussite photographique avec la tête de chien en prime.
Très bonne soirée.
mcmtanyel (16001) 2014-03-16 18:27
This is a great photo coming out of a cell phone. It is cropped just right & tight. The red on his costume is an attention grabber.
Oceania (5174) 2014-03-17 6:34
I saw similar scene not in Tel Aviv, but in Rome. The most interesting thing is this guy is interacting with a dog. It's very funny and also a great capture!
Hope you enjoy the new week!
clic (15910) 2014-03-17 7:18
A tight crop very interesting, my friend, because those two, legionnaire and lion, seem 'trapped' in the limelight of a small arena in the Roman era, defying each-other and waiting for Ceasar to throw the white silk handkerchief, a triggering factor of a death struggle!
Unfortunately I know the brave knight will loose the combat because he doesn't wear legs armors!
ChrisJ (103531) 2014-03-17 17:32
Maybe I should post a similar centurion statue from Pompei, although it is only a copy. Good daily life scene and despite the slight kitsch feel, it exudes a nice element of human warmth. And canine too although its hard to tell if the dog is enjoying the experience! Good use of a shallow dof. Tfs!
RhodieIke (11742) 2014-03-18 22:50
Great photo of this guy in all his Roman costume, I find the scene amusing as we see him all dressed up and wonder what he is looking at then we spot the dog in the corner.
Nice one, made me laugh, Tfs,
cornejo (35117) 2014-03-19 12:49
Hello Ike, very good picture of this Roman soldier who judging by the cars background, seems to have entered the time tunnel and has transported our present, very well captured with good sharpness, light, color and good quality. Very good and interesting job well done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing.
Good night and happy week.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.
nikkitta (16476) 2014-03-19 13:19
Thats the street scene I like, the smiling "soldier" in diagonal with the dog, a quick and good capture
Alco (7101) 2014-03-19 20:23
Nice picture of that roman soldier.It is funny to see that dog watching him.Nice colors.TFS.
Have a nice day.
Miguel82 (26528) 2014-03-20 11:49
I like fancy dresses Ike and that soldier is ready for Tel aviv carnaval, good quality of image, thanks for your unreserved support, good evening
delpeoples (54659) 2014-03-20 21:34
hehehe this has given me a good laugh. A great cell phone capture, and I love how you included the dog in the frame. Just when I thought the Romans had left Israel 2,000 years ago, you surprise me with this! :) A funny, lighthearted daily life photo, enjoy your festival.
PS: Sorry I've been absent from TE, I was away for work. On my travels, I met a man who gave me 10 pomegranates. He said that he was 36 pomegranates short, but that you would know what he meant
Robert1969 (7160) 2014-03-21 1:04
Nice moment. Picture tells more than a
thousand words. Composition is very
good. Okay, picture has some noise
but it is taken with a mobile phone.
elenimavrandoni (14209) 2014-03-21 19:26
Ike, I missed this picture when you posted it but I find it very different and very appropriate for the special day of the Purim holiday..great timing with the little dog and fine color!!
have a great day
marina7 (8055) 2014-03-24 9:43
haha..this is a funny one! Sweet image, the heart of the warrior has warmed up at the sight of this doggie:)
Well seen and captured!
adores (40354) 2014-04-02 15:23
What a funny and nice shot! I like the pose and the smiling face of the Roman soldier looking at the dog. Good composition including the head of the dog on the right corner.
daddo (25533) 2014-04-11 4:41
Shalom Ike. amusing encounter. If it wasn't for the real Romans, there wouldn't have been THE crucifixion. I wonder what would have been the long term consequences of that non event. Regards. Klaudio.
Tigerlily (3137) 2014-04-17 8:32
I really love this photo.. made me laugh. The POV is excellent to show the content of the story.
jmdias (58502) 2014-05-26 16:24
he is a roman with white feet, haha.
nice view of the personage well dressed and natural, the contrast with the modern urban environment is an interesting subject.
NorthernLight (2383) 2014-09-21 2:00
I did not know that there are still those soldiers in your area. ;-) Or Wells time machine really exist.
This officer certainly seems to be a a nice person, because your dog - it's your dog? - Looks at him kindly.
The man is wearing sandals but probably not often, because he has snow-white feet. That makes me smile.
A not everyday sight and a nice colorful photo subject
All the best and a nice sunday for you
swapankumarroy (2847) 2014-10-06 6:55
Lovely shot with your cellphone, really wonderful, the roman soldier was playing with dog, efficiently managed its composition, sharpness and warm color contrast, well done.
my warm regards and have a nice week,
berek (42912) 2014-11-01 22:54

Matyas (7697) 2015-03-08 1:09

Noel_Byrne (26998) 2015-07-05 1:50
This is nicely spotted, the Vodafone is heat and the man's smile is very warm and genuine, great too that you included the dog so we can see exactly what he is smiling at
