The Bar Mitzvah Procession

While in Jerusalem I met with some friends for coffee at Mamilla Mall. I had arranged to meet my husband and son in the old city at the Western Wall but I was late. I ran into a bit of a road block….a Bar Mitzvah procession that was also making its way to the wall.

Now I probably could have veered my way through the crowd but truth be told this was such a joyous experience that I took my time and walked with them for a while. The festive mood of the family and guests, the live music and dancing was infectious.

Jerusalem Break

The natural Jerusalem stone of Mamilla mall, the Orthodox Jewish gentleman in traditional black garb, I saw this scene as I was walking by and although it was a bright sunny day immediately envisioned it in black and white.

I have a challenge for you. I’m think of submitting this in a competition but can’t think of a unique title for it. Any suggestions?

Duomo di Milano

After a 3 1/2 hour train ride through the Alps we arrived in Milan. The forecast for the day we arrived was cloudy and rain. Luckily it had rained early in the morning so by the time we arrived the rain had stopped.

After checking into our hotel and dumping our bags we headed out immediately and made the Duomo our first stop. I always find that dull, grey days make great black and white images and that’s exactly what I was pre-visualizing.

Subway Tableau #3

New York – Times Square – 51st Street Station. Each tableau tells a story. You just need to look carefully to find out what it is.

Westfield World Trade Center

The Westfield World Trade Center was completed and opened in August 2016. It replaces The Mall at the World Trade Center which located on the concourse level of the original World Trade Center which was destroyed on September 11, 2001.

The architecture of this mall is pretty spectacular and if you stand in the right spot you can see the new World Trade Center through the slats. I took this picture last fall but I’m heading back to NYC in a few weeks and I intend to pay it another visit.
