"Tolerance and good vibes"

.
In A Bunch of Benches VP posted a different view of the benches in a new sitting place in Jerusalem's old and cramped neighborhood of Nachlaot.

This is the other end of the little park.
I thought the shadows of the still-empty pergola would be fun for Hey Harriet's Shadows on Sunday.
.
Sitting in the shade with your laptop might be more pleasant than inside some of the old little houses.

Interesting how the long and narrow square is higher than the sidewalks on either side.
.
Nachlaot has been undergoing gentrification and is getting to be a popular (and more expensive) neighborhood. Their website, http://www.nachlaot.com/, says that "tolerance and good vibes" would best describe the population mixture.
.
Wherever you are sitting or walking today, have a nice weekend.

Interesting shadows. It's good to sit in the fresh air when the sun shines.

I like the droopy net shadows in the first shot...

The angular shadows are perfectly formed - yet a bit bare. Leafy vines would be a nice addition as they grow behind and above. A nice neighborhood, a place to enjoy the day...

Thank you - wishing you a lovely weekend yourself! Love the patterns that the fence makes - especially that first one!

That is cool the sidewalk is much higher but it makes a good shadow too. Happy weekend!

Nice photos of places to be seen and not to be seen, I guess. Some much chain link fence.

Some interesting shadows cast by the pergola. Looks like the guy with a laptop found a nice quiet spot to check his emails. I really like the sound of Nachlaot.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend :)

When you wrote about this square I didn't realize well how cramped it was, but I guess everything would look better with some green all around.
