Pictures from Around Town

Here are some pictures that I took during some recent travels around Jerusalem.

First, two photos of the Calatrava Chords Bridge at the entrance to the city:

I call this one “Arabesque” because it reminds me of the ballet position of the same name:


A wild ring-necked parakeet happily munching on dates straight from the date palm:

(You can see a clearer view of the parakeet here.)

Finally, when I went to a government building on an errand recently, I saw its flagpole, with its flag unfurling in the breeze against a blue sky:

Please say a prayer for the soldiers of the IDF.
