Last week in Jerusalem, Israel,
during the rainy weather days
it was possible to take a color photo of the new String Bridge,
that looked like it was black and white.
But then the sun came out,
Jerusalem’s street cats returned to bask in the sun,
and this cat was back on guard at Beit Hanasi,
the Israeli President’s residence.
Families with school-age children
are busy trying to find the best school
for their child’s education, and space is limited.
But for others,
there was time to go by Teddy Park
and watch the water in the fountain rise and fall.
The weather was sunny,
no one went into the water,
but nice enough to just sit on the ground and relax,
in this new park across from the Old City walls.
Cloud formations this time of year make for interesting photos.
The views of Jerusalem are constantly changing:
this large fenced-off cleared area
and construction site across from the Central Bus Station
are signs of work well under way.
Posters are up announcing plans for
drastic changes to the entrance of Jerusalem,
with multiple building towers and a new fast rail system.
City construction goes on deep underground
long before it is obvious to passers-by above.
Meanwhile, a walk along Jaffa Road
shows new construction rising from the old
and some familiar old scenes.
Jerusalem of old
is constantly changing.
When the sun shines,
it is time to get out and get around.
Isn’t it time for you to see it for yourself.
