Jerusalem Summer Colors

Summertime in Jerusalem, Israel, when it gets hot,

it is often hard to walk outside.

In the evening, sometimes it cools off.

A photo walk provides a great excuse to leave

my air conditioned room.

Though plants are drying out from the harsh sun,

there is new color to be found.

Yemin Moshe have been painted bright red.

Pillbox painted white and read with British soldiers in Rechavia Jerusalem Israel

The Rechavia Pillbox has British soldiers again.

 I doubt the British army dressed like that

  back in the summers of 1930’s in Jerusalem.

Lion Fountain Jerusalem Israel bird on top

This live bird on top of Lion’s Fountain,

had gotten my attention.

The water has stopped flowing at the top,

Children splashing in Lion Fountain to cool off on hot Jerusalem, Israel night

but children still cool off in the fountain below.

Teddy Fountain is more popular these days, and nights.

Old City Jerusalem, Israel view of walls at sunset

This view at sunset never tires,

always a new color reflected on the walls at sunset.

Also in Yemin Moshe,

windows with flowers,

Stairs in Yemin Moshe Jerusalem Israel lined with flowers

and its stairs are always photo worthy.

Jerusalem Maccabiah Night Run 2017

The Maccabiah sports events have concluded.

Thousands came from around the world.

Tens of thousands participated in the Night Run

racing through the streets of Jerusalem.

The annual Jerusalem Film Festival is going strong,

with new this year,

multiple community showings for children.

Families are encouraged to come out in the evening

for these free films.

Hot, but still,

so many things happening on the Jerusalem streets.

    Never too early to say “Shabbat Shalom” 😉 Thank you for the beautiful flowers and cooling colors. Safe travels up north. May it be only for smachot in the future.

    I love your posts. Your photography is excellent and, together with your comments, I get a feel of what it would be like to actually be there to see the various parts Jerusalem. Travel safely to the north and, in future, may all your travels be for smachot. Shabbat Shalom.

      Thank you Ruth. Was long fascinating day, I will have to share parts of trip here soon. Northern Israel is beautiful. Shame we went for such a tragic reason.
