Welcome back to your favorite little meme!
Sorry I'm late in posting this, it's almost Pesach (Passover) here, and we're very overloaded with preparations. As a matter of fact, I likely won't be around next week at all, so I'm going to schedule a post to pop up all on its own...

At any rate, I'm pleased to have found a spare moment to post this, the next post in my nighttime photowalk series. Better late than never  - enjoy :)

Whimsical Windows, Delirious Doors! #121

Welcome back to our fun weekly meme!
I went for a walk not far from my house one evening, and discovered that a lot of the homes here take on a very different personality at night. Here's the first in my small series of nighttime windows and doors :)
Interesting, right?

Whimsical Windows, Delirious Doors! #120

Welcome back to your favorite little meme!
This week I present you with what I found on my living room window, this past Friday morning. After a blessed week of rain, thunder, rain, lightning, and more rain, we found - snow? slush? - falling from the skies. It was very brief, just a minute or two, but it stuck to the ground and to our windows, and it was really neat :)
Then just as quickly, it was gone! The skies turned sunny and light, the air turned much warmer, and we've been having a dry, pleasant weekend ever since. I wonder what next week will bring?

Whimsical Windows, Delirious Doors! #119

Here we are, back for your favorite little meme!
Here are some very local windows, from right here in Efrat. It's a very small boutique hotel, about an 8 minute drive from my house. Like so many buildings in Israel, it looks very, very pretty from one angle, and totally unfinished from another...
I just don't know why they do that...

Anyway - the exciting part of this picture is the part you notice the least - it's cloudy, and actually raining! Yay! Our drought took a day off today :)

Skywatch - dust!

For the last week, we've been in the middle of a crazy, dusty haze. Before I moved to Israel, I hadn't realized that dust was a weather condition. Turns out I was wrong - here's the sunset from tonight:
Wow, right?

Whimsical Windows, Delirious Doors! #118

Welcome back to your favorite little meme!
Wandering around Jerusalem a couple of weeks ago, I found this lovely assortment of windows, all down the block from one another. You can't beat Jerusalem for class and variety!


Please excuse the mediocre quality of these taken-at-night-with-a-smartphone photos... but I think that their subjects shine through, nonetheless :)

Whimsical Windows, Delirious Doors! #117

Welcome back to your favorite little meme!
I happened to find this photo of a doorway that I took, back when we had our wintry storm a few months ago. I decided to post it now, in solidarity with all of you out there who are having a miserably cold and snowy winter! Here in Israel we're still in a drought, that storm was pretty much the beginning and end of our winter. Here's hoping it returns! And meanwhile, here's my snowy door:
Granted, at second glance, I see that there's not an awful lot of snow here. But it's the thought that counts, right?
:)

Skywatch - last month's clouds

I found these in my January 2014 folder; apparently they slipped through the cracks and went unnoticed and unposted until now. I confess to not remembering exactly when and where I took these! I suppose that's the blessing and curse of keeping my camera in my bag! On the one hand, it could have been anywhere... but on the bright side, at least I did manage to take them, and they are awfully pretty :)

Whimsical Windows, Delirious Doors! #116

Welcome back to your favorite little meme!
Remember Mamilla, the new-ish outdoor mall in Jerusalem? Well, I'm pleased to bring you a daytime view:

I've been to Mamilla about a dozen times, but only after looking up to take this picture did I notice what's going on here architecturally, and it's pretty cool: one side is built to look like old-time Jerusalem, while directly opposite is a more modern style. (You can actually see this in action, if you look carefully, in my previous Mamilla post, linked above.) They've done a nice job of this! I'm also curious as to what's behind those balconies - are they really apartments, as they're meant to seem? Or are they just super-fancy offices of the stores below? Fascinating :)

Biking to work just a couple of weeks ago, I found this lovely sunrise:

Welcome back to your favorite little meme!
Sorry, but I found one more door that I forgot to post from my previous trip up North :) This little shop was right next to the pizzeria that we went to in Rosh Pina. Charming, isn't it?
