L'Shanah Tovah

Posted by Yonatan (New York, United States) on 18 September 2009 in Lifestyle & Culture.

L'shanah Tovah U'Metukah to all my friends and family and those celebrating the holiday.

I thought that I would take a stab at still life photography to welcome the Jewish New Year. Rosh Hashanah translates in English to "Head of the Year." The month of Tishrei is believed to be the month in which God created the world. It is customary to dip apples in honey which represent our hope for a sweet new year.

Thank you for taking some time to take a look at my photographs. I hope you enjoy your stop at my blog.

I invite you all to visit frequently and leave comments and feedback. I would really appreciate constructive criticism that will help me improve. You don't need to be a photographer to help me, tell me what you like and don't like. If you have any suggestions of interesting things to shoot or fun techniques to try I'd also love to know.

Best wishes,
