This week’s photo challenge is hands. When I first read about it, I thought about not participating, because that I don’t have any suitable photos, but when I dug in my collection, I could find a few. Instead of publishing a few posts, I decided not to publish of the photos that I wanted, and to focus in one subject: sport.
As usual, you can click on the photos and perss F11 in order to see them on a full screen.
The following picture was taken during Passover, which is the Israeli Ultimate – Frisbee championship. Why is it called like that? Because it takes place every April, during the Passover holiday.
For those who are not familiar with this game, I’ll say, that it’s like football (American football, not soccer): it’s a game of two teams, played on a field with the size of a football field (i.e. it’s BIG!), divided into 3 parts: 2 end zones (one in every side of the field) and the main play ground. Each teams tries to catch the Frisbee in the other team’s end zone, when the only way to proceed, is to throw the Frisbee to another team member (it’s not allowed to run with it). The game requires a high physical fitness, because the players run a lot on the field, and in various speeds. There’s no referee, and the players themselves decides whether a foul was made, if the Frisbee crossed the field’s lines etc.
This photo was taken on June 21st, which is the longest day in the year. On that day, tens of men and women were gathered in Tel-Aviv port, to salute to the sun, by performing the Yoga exercise, “Surya Namaskar” 108 times (more details about it can be found here).
