Not Wooster Square....But Entering Jerusalem

After we left Tel Aviv and Caesaria we spent four days in Jerusalem. Jerusalem is my second home in that I lived there for a year just a few short years ago. In this photo you can see that the terrain change from sea level and the Mediterranean Sea and gorgeous sunsets to wonderfully terraced hills. The weather in J'lem was rainy and cold but that didn't stop us. This photo below is of the welcome sign into Jerusalem as you are traversing on Route 1 the main route from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. I'm sorry to say that I don't remember what the welcome sign says exactly.....maybe blessings friends. Dina, some help here? (Dina of Jerusalem Hills Daily Photo gives the answer below in the comment section, thank you friend!)
King David's Harp below is a strings bridge that was inaugurated on June 25, 2008. Designed by architect, Santiago Calatrava it is pretty visible from almost any vantage point in Jerusalem, it resembles the Biblical King David's harp that he was known to play. This bridge is part of the new transit system. Some like it....and some don't. You can see that the sky was getting darker and darker which made for a nice photo. I do apologize for not remaining true and posting every day. Sometimes the life of a pastor becomes a little, shall we say, not our own.


  1. Sign says "Bruchim ha-baim," literally meaning "Blessed are the ones who are coming," i.e. "Welcome!"

    Good captures from a moving bus.
    The sky has been that color for the past week.

    Don't worry about not posting every single day. We, your blog flock, know how to wait.

  2. Thank you Dina! I knew that you would come through.

  3. Beautiful Castle shots !! Simply nice and amazing !!

  4. Views of the Nature are really beautiful.
    My hands seem to reach there.

    Your photography is very splendid.

    I thank for your always admiring my calligraphy.

    From the Far East.
    Best regards.
