people, places and things that are timeless, beautiful and fantastical. join me in my fantasies.
I didn’t realize until just this moment, that this is a very old photograph. You can deduce where and when it was taken, if you look at the horrible flag outside the window. I’m posting this because it is Hanukkah, and because in one beautiful shot it illustrates that people who are oppressed can have the courage to continue honoring who they are, to persevere. It isn’t a joyful photo, but it is a photo full of bravery, and that is important to me.
