Photographer's Note

It is useful to read this note:

A girl watering the Olive tree, which is a symbol for peace.

Part of the graffiti on the "Talking walls" in Shtula, a village established in 1966 close to the border with Lebanon, at 680m ~ above sea-level.

The reason to build a massive concrete defense wall, which stretches for 200m and 4 meters high, was following the abduction of two soldiers which led to the outbreak of the Second Lebanon War in 2006, shooting directly into Shtula from Ayta-ash-Sha'ab, the town 1.5km~ across to Lebanon.

Later, a group of eight graffiti artists participated in a project to decorate the wall with a theme calling for peace.

Location at 33.0877, 35.3205 on the map.

Picture converted from RAW, F10.0, 1/640, ISO100, spot.
