Photographer Lisa Shalom, a Nebraska native, spent six years living in Israel. While there, she took thousands of photos, many of which we hope to showcase to our readers in the coming months.

For now, we figured we'd whet your appetite with these handful of photos she took while strolling through a market in Jerusalem.

"Most of the booth owners are happy to pose for photos, but many are weary of the camera," she told From The Grapevine. "Even though it’s public, it’s still polite to ask first before taking any photos. After all, haggling is a huge part of the experience."
