ali – the king of dates

January 20, 2015 - single portrait

i met him on my way from Jerusalem to Dead Sea. his dates shop looks very tasty and original – dates everywhere, 26 kinds at the same time. i’m huge lover of dates so i can try and try and try again without any pause and to listen his stories about everything – his hard work and his fast growing sons, and how beautiful our life (of course when we have some amount of dates). Ali’s black coffee prepaired in the place is the best energy bomb in the middle of desert.

– can i take your portrait ?
– be my guest and come again !
i was’t there more then year. how are you Ali? how is your natural business and tastiest coffee? looks like i know where i’ll go next weekend.

more strangers portraits …

thank you !!!

    Victor – I love this man already ! Great photo and friend to have I also love dates . As a little girl my Mama would hide the dates way up high for her baking so no one would eat them before. I was like a little monkey climing up over everything to get to my delicious destination! I would sneak dates and eat them all to myself. When baking time came she would not know who the thief was. I recently told her it was always me ! Ijon , I never had a problem with my stomach ! Victor – another great stranger story . I love these! Dawn
