Soldiers, Muslims, Coca Cola

Paul Ford took a walk around Jerusalem with a guy from Indymedia Israel, and came up with a bunch of pictures. I think I prefer looking at raw sets of pictures that people have taken -- as opposed to professional photo spreads -- if only because they don't have the "edited for effect" feel that takes a specific angle on a story and leaves the rest out. Paul's photos take an angle and probably are edited to some extent, but they seem to let the different threads of the story unfold on their own. The captions give me the sense that it's one person's experience, not a made up composite of experiences.
