Mother and Child

Tel Aviv Area

A street photo taken in the Tel Aviv area of an Ethiopian woman and her child. I actually got "permission" to take this. A nod of the head and then an almost embarrassed look away from me. However, this young child could not resist making eye contact! These are somewhat new immigrants and I think the number on the pole is symbolic of what it must feel like to once again be starting from scratch. Photo © copyright by James Margolis.
