Luminous laptop

.
Across the miles, from my computer to yours, HAPPY CHANUKA !

Chanuka, the Festival of Lights, began yesterday, with the just one candle being lit by the shamash helper candle.
One more candle is added each evening.
Next Friday the chanukiya will be full, with maximum brightness and cheer, as in this picture (which is extra nice when enlarged).
.
Happy holiday and happy "Weekend Reflections," the nice meme hosted by James in Pennsylvania.

I really like this picture. Great reflection, and a lovely contrast of the ancient and modern.

What a great concept for a photo. Well staged, and composed. HAPPY CHANUKA to you.

What a wonderful Chanuka photo, especially with the reflection on your computer screen! Just don't get any candle wax on your keyboard! All the best from snowy Minnesota

I love the wonderful warm glow of your menorah, Dina. I wish you a very happy Channukah and that light shines around you and yours the whole year – a year filled with happiness, peace and joy.

Simply beautyful, both the idea and the picture!Tradition meeting modern times, in a very inspiring picture!

I'll be a bit frivolous and say that it reminded me of my eldest daughters laptop that just lost it background light... :-)

Otherwise: happy festiva!

PS Thank you for the comment - they are reintroducing cobblestones all over the inner part of the city and will do it here too.

Happy Chanuka, Dina! Those candles remind me of my first (and till now the only) Chanuka experience I had in the US.

Shalom

I like this shot, it shows the ancient and the modern together.

Happy Chanuka Dina. I love the creative image of your chanukia in your laptop.

all the very best dina!

Halcyon said...

Neat idea for a reflection. I guess you are sharing the light with your online friends. :)

Julie said...

What a brilliant method of obtaining a reflection, Dina.

The chanuka candle is a very reflective exercise, in and of itself. One of the candles in your shot seems to be hogging the oxygen from all his fellows!!

Publish the miracle, Dina!




Shalom & Aloha,

Yes, I too like the contrast of ancient lights with modern laptop. Great photo for today's world!

Woody said...

Great contrast between the old traditions and the new 'tool' (that often frustrates us)!

FA said...

Amazing shot. I really like how the reflection shows the flame but not quite the menorah. It's like the Chanuka light is floating in mid air. Happy Chanuka, Dina.
