Street-life in Mea Shearim (Jerusalem)

It is not the easiest thing to capture the street-life in the Mea Shearim (מאה שערים) neighborhood, I somehow managed it. The walls are plastered with Pashkevilin (announcements) by the Haredi Jews.  The Pashkevilim are sometimes distributed anonymously; however, many are posted with rabbinic endorsements or the name of an activist group appended to the bottom. The medium is often used as an anonymous means of publicly attacking a person or group, and even those that bear the names of leading Rabbis can be fraudulent.
