Christmas in Nazareth with Leica

by Tomer Vaknin

Hi Steve and marry Christmas to every one.

This year me and my family decided to go Nazareth to celebrate Christmas and to do a little Street/Family photography.

My gear of choice was Leica M10 with a Leica Summaron-M 28mm f/5.6 and ZEISS Planar T* 50mm f/2 lenses

For those of you that don’t know the city of Nazareth is a very old city in north of Israel and the biggest Arab city in Israel.

The city is the city is majority if Muslim Arabs 70% and 30% of Christian Arabs.

Every year you can find beautiful celebrations in all the big cities of Israel but this year we decided to go to Nazareth for the famous Big Christmas tree of the city.

Thank you very much

And Happy new year and Merry Christmas

A little side note.

  1. Color and saturation!!! Didn’t think you had it in you, Tomer 😉

    2019 is the Year of Saturated Colors! I’m awaiting the arrival of my first batth of Ektachrome!!!

    • It’s funny how people talk about colour, as these looked like they could have come from my Sony A7Riii which people say has bad colour… who knows, it’s all in the PP really, right?

  2. Wonderful Pictures, love the Leica Colors especially in the picture with the Smartphone.
    I’m looking forward to your Article on the iPad Pro. There are so many good Photo Editors and Writing Apps on the AppStore. But it is really difficult to find a good App for IPTC tagging. And of course a reliable Backup Solution without needing a Cloud Server.

  3. I hadn’t realised that Nazereth was predominantly Arab, nor that 30% of Arab people anywhere were Christian! Nice to see some humanity and peace in a region that so often is in the news for conflict.
