Praying at Jerusalem's Western Wall

While touring Jerusalem on a day trip, I captured this individual praying at the Western Wall. What stood out for me was the emotion this gentleman is showing. His hands and the angle of his head show how much he is in the moment and trying to connect to a higher being.
