Star of Bethlehem


This star is laid in the street in the middle of the historic district in downtown Bethlehem. I was hoping to get a photo before sunrise and knew there was very little traffic at 6am, but also did not want to get yelled at by some passing car. I set my exposure,picked an angle and then made a dash to get the shot in about a minute. No cars came but there was actually a police officer eating breakfast in a shop directly to my right and I am pretty sure he saw me but he never came out. Maybe he figured if anyone is crazy enough to set up a tripod in the middle of the street,if they get run over,its their problem? Seriously I found most folks in town were very accommodating and I even asked a bellhop if I could move a small sign at our hotel and he said of course.
