Photographer's Note

Anniversary. Wisdom of Surviving

(The text below as it appeared two years ago)

I've seen Him many times, walking slowly the same street of my city.
I never stopped in my run, always hasty and arrogant.
I never said 'Hi' to him or turn my head with greetings, or smile - immature, pretentious idiot with the flashy camera - me. The true photographer - me (?)

That day the street was deserted and - for some reason - I forgot all of my snobbery and arrogance, and I stopped, and I extended my hand with a camera towards him…
May I…?
He froze too, stayed motionlessly for second or two and then shy smile appeared on his face and his head nodded slightly.
After my first click, he started to walk again and when I clicked again - he stopped again.
'Oh, no…THANKS…I'm done…'
I thanked Him once more, with the biggest smile I could produce.
I've never saw Him again… Ever.


Today is my 1st. ANNIVERSARY of staying on TE.
I just wrapped up the posting of my Holocaust series, and I decided to gift myself with this very special, old photo of a man on the street of my city.
For, I own Him this honor.
For everything.
I dedicate this photo to all of those who vanished, because of our inability to prevent the evil.

One year on TE…
One heck of a ride, I must tell ya !!!!
(My adversaries… Go to hell !).

Definition of 'adversary':
The one whom I love more, than he loves me
