18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
Hasidic 40

I sometimes roam the Jewish Neighborhood of Borough Park, not often though, the vibe there is very sheltered, insular, occasionally hostile (by the dirty looks) with a camera over my neck, it's not unexpected. I try not to get close when photographing *any* stranger but especially in Borough Park. Here, I happened to be photographing Church Statues, Jesus on the Cross and a statue of some Bishop. This man, with his child, pushing a stroller came along, I took the photo because the light hitting the other side of the street was so beautiful.
