KasamLand Market

50mm 1/400 f/2.2 iso 100
Everyday there 5-10 missiles (Kasams) fall on Sderot – a very small town near the Gaza Strip. Every Sunday and Tuesday there is a farmer market in the town. Life doesn't stop here, people are trying to live there life.
There are few items in this photo that might look unknown/strange to most of you:
The small piece of garment on the farmer head called Kippa (in Hebrew), it symbolize that this person is a religious. In the blurry background there are posters from the last election campaign. In front of the farmer there is a very old weighing machine.
