Old City Window redux

Click to enlarge
.
Another window shot from Jerusalem's Old City this week. I'm leaving it to speak for itself because it's quarter to one in the morning and we've only just gotten home from a very special evening of wonderful music in memory of a dear friend, who left us much too soon but left the precious gift of his songs behind. My head is too full of his words to find any of my own tonight. I'd rather hold onto the magic just a little bit longer.

Everyday laundry flying with the flag. :)

Sorry to hear of your loss Robin.
'...hold unto the magic...' - it sounds as if he left a beautiful gift behind for you to cherish.

I also have a few window and door photos after our latest trip but not quite as engaging as yours.
Cheers

Sorry to hear of the loss of your friend, but it's comforting to know his music will last forever! That is a very efficient use of a window!

Loss of a friend is so very hard to bear, but to have music and song to remember and dwell on is a blessing.
I remember scenes like your window view from my visit. Eaton

I would have loved to visit the Old City, but the Navy had other plans :( and we didn't get to stay as long as we wanted...

Nice window shot.
Love the clothes line!

Daryl said...

So sorry for your (and his family's)loss .. may he rest in peace...

I am smiling at the color coordinated laundry alongside the flag, not something you'd see here.

That is the way - put your best clothes at the front row and hope there is nobody around with camera to publish to world your underwear :) Good one! Made me smile! Had to enlarge it to get all the details - was worth it!

No words really necessary for this one Robin. Sorry to hear about your friend, but happy he had a good legacy.

(ahem.BTW, this would make an excellent subject for some of your HDR experiments.)

Robin said...

I know it would, but without the multiple exposures I'd have to try faking the brightness and then doing it. It's a weekend project.

PS Just realized my camera doesn't do automatic exposure bracketing. Grrrr...

Hi ~ This picture really tells a story. I love the efficient use of space, the colored clothespins, the flags. I am sorry about the loss of your friend - and I hope you can hold onto the magic for as long as possible. Take care.

I'm sorry to hear about your friend. Sometimes we just have to take time to remember - it's how we keep loved ones with us after they're gone. But it's never a real substitute. There just isn't any.

Sorry to hear about the loss of your friend.
Re: window - I used to think that you see such weird things only in Malta!

Genny said...

Hope you are doing well. I know you've had a lot going on lately...

Thanks for the heads up Thom, I'd missed it in fact. I'll head over there shortly.

I'm sorry for your loss and commend you for taking care of yourself in this time of sorrow. Thanks for sharing these 'flag-framed' windows from Jerusalem's Old City.
Hugs and blessings,
