A private moment with God

I saw this man everyday during my visit to Jerusalem. He came everyday to the same spot, placed his face on the Western Wall and started praying. His emotions were contagious, making me feel a part of his private moment with God. It was beautiful how it didn't matter what God he was praying to, as his message was conveyed through feelings rather than words. On my last day there, I took this photo, to capture our "conversation". We never said a word to each other.
