In the Northeastern United States,
the leaves turn vivid colors in autumn
before they fall off the trees and pile up below.
While walking around in Jerusalem, Israel, yesterday,
I was impressed by the many colors of Jerusalem.
Straight out of the camera, no fancy editing filters were needed
to capture the fall colors of this lovely new area.
Only a few meters away,
the fountain of the North African Jewry Heritage Center
is always a colorful sight.
After a few days of rain,
the sun came out and warmed up the streets.
Street cats of all colors were resting in the sun.
In an alleyway of Nahlat Shivah
this door is painted bright blue
to keep the evil eye away.
Near the walls of the Old City
there are blue painted bars on the old French Hospital’s windows.
When it started to rain,
the popular summer attraction
of colorful umbrellas was taken down;
these were the last ones off of Yoel Salomon Street.
The Museum of Tolerance can now be seen above ground,
and with plans for over 240 toilets
it should be a very popular tourist (rest) stop.
This “I love Jerusalem” attraction is new.
But I especially love the Jerusalem colors:
black and white,
and all kinds of stripes,
all can be seen on the Jerusalem streets.
This guy fits my ‘you never know what you will find’ theme.
I have no idea what that is around his face.
However he is assured a seat where ever he goes.
If you find a video he is in, please send me a link.
The newest attraction is along the Old City Walls.
These over-sized colorful photos of people
are portraits of residents and workers in the Old City.
However, I prefer the natural colors,
the changing leaves in Teddy Park,
and the flowers of Yemin Moshe.
These photos were all taken on a short walk on one nice day.
However, posting on today’s date,
I must include one old favorite street sign–
Kaf Tet November.
70 years ago, in 1947,
the United Nations Partition Plan was accepted,
a day so significant it has its own Jerusalem street.
