Seeing red in Jerusalem

.
A lightpole's shadow climbs over a bench for Hey Harriet's "Shadow Shot Sunday."
.
Jerusalem does not do much with Valentine's Day (it being a goyishe holiday and all).
So this is the closest thing I can find that is even vaguely heart-shaped.
But at least it is red, Calder red!
(Remember the posts about it getting painted, here and here?)
.
Alexander Calder's "Homage to Jerusalem - Stabile" was dedicated in 1977 on Mount Herzl.
.
May all you blogger friends and readers receive, and give, lots of love on Valentine's Day and every day.

Indeed, goyishe or not... you done a great job.

Spirit of a Heart's Day.

Happy Heart's Day.

Neat sculpture. It could be a stylish insect that is menacing the earth. Or not, the stylish arcs nice looking in its own right. The shade of red is stunning, a large and beautiful work of art!

Everybody has a heart, so happy Valentine day!

bobbie said...

And a happy Valentine's Day to you!
A very nice SSS.

Lawstude said...

That was awesome. I like it.

By the way, Happy Hearts Day and Kung Hei Fat Choi (Happy Chinese New Year). :)

Happy Valentine's day even if you don't do it.

That red structure looks very unusual. Something that viewers probbaly ask," What is it?"

Hey Harriet said...

The red against that gorgeous blue sky is quite magical! I'm not a big follower of Valentine's Day as love is something that should be celebrated everyday :) Happy weekend to you and may it be filled with love and all things wonderful.

Cute story about your encounter with an ibis in Sydney. Yes, they swarm when food is around! I've had so many lunches stolen by them over the years.

I like more the beautiful curved bench...

Happy Valentines Day :)

Hilda said...

And a lovely red sculpture you found for us today. Our large Chinese community (I think most of us in Manila probably have Chinese blood) is also celebrating Lunar New Year so it's a double red celebration.

Happy Valentine's Day and Happy Lunar New Year, Dina! :)

Don't the bench and post make an interesting shadow? The calder red arch is very pretty. Happy Shadow Shot Sunday!!

Sorry you're having trouble posting on our blog. Comments are lower so something is up. As always, you continue to intrigue us with the toggling between the modern and the antiquities!

Like the Calder and would like to see a few more pictures of it. Valentine's Day isn't goyishe, it is secular.

Calder Red is perfect for today.

Since it is a "Goyishe" observance, is it still OK for me to wish you a Happy Valentine's Day? I'm going to risk it -:))

Smalltown RN said...

Happy Valentine's Day....and that is a great photo....

Dina said...

Shalom all! Your comments and wishes really brought me a big smile today. :D
Thank you and loving wishes to you too.
Guess I should have put a wink ;) next to the "goyish holiday" choice of words. That's how it was meant. hehe

I like the curves and the color!

Reader Wil said...

We don't do much at Valentine either. But we get the occasional rose here and there.Thanks for your lovely comment!

Alaxander Calder's family moved to Pasadena. 7 degrees of separation.

Does Calder have his own shade of red? Maybe they should name a rose after him

No doubt about Calder red! :-)
