Because It Looks Like A Painting. Today is 12/15/09 in Jerusalem.

LeFever_MG_3355_J_p_like_a-paintingOvercast, decided to take the day off.

Rest. Write.


Walk around the convent grounds – they have a peaceful garden.

I see the Old City East wall across the valley.  I identify the places I had walked and taken photos. I trace my path visually with a relaxed observance. Take out the G10 and shoot a couple panoramas for a later memoir.

I look across the Kidron Valley at the Golden Gate which from my angle, is below and in front of the Dome of the Rock, above the Islamic Cemetery. The Golden Gate is sealed up and is anticipated for the entrance of Messiah into Jerusalem (by the Jews).

Update the Consecrated Space Blog with first photos from Jerusalem (from the Church of All Nations)-

Going to bed early again… tomorrow I will plan my week at breakfast and take off again into the Old City….

Oh yes, the photo at top was taken yesterday on my way back to the Old City from the German Colony. Since I didn’t take any new photos today, and since this one from yesterday looked like a painting… I thought I would share it.

    Hey Jeff!!!!!!!
    Barb & my family & I all looked at your photos together tonight – Fabulous!
    You’re taking GREAT photos.
    Is that place amazing or what?! – so much energy, so many contrasts,
    such resonance.
    It’s 10:00PM here so it must be mid-day there – (what a strange thing to wrap your head around) – anyway, it’s incredible
    that you are there – I’m jealous – soak it up pal!
    Ken (and Barb!)
