My grandma was born and raised in Afula, Israel. After all, her father did found the town. The two of us are not particularly close, mostly because we don't live close. But we did have a nice time shoe shopping and eating falafel in the town she knows so well.
Also, for the last week I've ditched my zoom lens and grip. My shoulder is grateful for the rest, and it makes me think about my images more (I already can't chimp due to an accident in Spain...). I forgot how much I love my 35 f/2.
