Reflections on the Mount of Beatitudes

.
Up north in the Galilee, on the Mount of Beatitudes, I tried to take a picture of a laminated aerial photo of the church and the pilgrim center.
It was inside the window of the souvenir shop.
Back home, I see the arches and me are included.
.
The tourist in white is inside the church; the others are outside.
All good for James' Weekend Reflections.

The church is octagonal.
The window on this side reflects the opposite shore of the Sea of Galilee.
.
More about the church in coming posts.
Meanwhile, Shabbat shalom!

What windows can do....When we are inside they open our view to the outside world, but they also work as mirrors when we are outside, showing sometimes an unreal world.
Oi, I am trying to be philosophical...

All three are such interesting reflections. This is just a great meme because it lets me see places I will probably never visit in my lifetime. Thanks for sharing these!

On your pic the Mount of Beautitudes is not as high as it always imagined it to be -it's good to get a reality check:)

Very historical reflections in those windows. What an amazing place this part of the world is...how I would love to see these places.

Your welcome, Dina! It's a good solution. I might need your help another time.

Nice reflection, I like the final one of the octagonal window with the Kinneret. Shabbat Shalom Dina.

You did get some nice reflections. Thanks for the explanation. Often it is hard to tell who is in or out.

It was a happy accident! Isn't it amazing what we don't see when we are looking at a picture? I am always surprising myself. LOL

Very nice reflections!

That first photo just captivates me. Don't forget that the July CDP theme day theme is "reflection."

I think it's nice to see something of the photographer in a reflection.

I do believe I like the 2nd photo best with the window bars acting like a frame.
