Vive la France!

.
Today Jerusalem Hills Daily Photo is flying the French Tricolor in honor of Eric Tenin.
.
City Daily Photobloggers are celebrating the 5th anniversary of Eric's blog, "ParisDailyPhoto, the blog that started the City Daily Photo community."
Click here to view thumbnails for all participants in this special Blog Day. We are all trying to post a picture imitating the Tenin technique/perspective.
.

Consulat Général de France à Jérusalem stands proudly at 5 Paul Emile Botta Street.

The writing of the iron fence announces territory of the République française.
.
The Consulate's website has photos of the interior and the more ornate side of the grand old building, built in 1930.
.
(Other posts of French interest are about Paris Square in Jerusalem and Ben-Gurion Square in Paris.)
.
Mazal-tov to Eric Tenin and many thanks for inspiring 1,178 of us to begin blogs about our hometowns. Together we are making foreign countries less foreign and more friendly.

A very nice post Dina. Now I learn Eric from you, I will immediately go and check his blog.

"Together we are making foreign countries less foreign and more friendly"

So true, and the reason why I love CDP so much.

A wonderful tribute to Eric, Dina! I don't even know where the French Embassy in Manila is! I'm hopeless…

It is a challenge to get around to a lot of people and I have had good intentions on many different occasions but I still have not been able to do it. I get dog tired after visiting and commenting on about 100 blogs.

This is a nice post. I thought at first, Dina, the top picture and the next was your home and you had flown the flag.

It would be better if this and many others Consulates, were called Embassies, as they practically are, merciful fiction apart.

What lovely captures using "The Tenin Technicque".
