Action above and below-ground

.
A battle in the skies of Jerusalem?!
Who will win, the mast of Calatrava's Bridge of Strings or the giant cranes?
.
The cranes are working in a deep pit that we saw in a previous post.
.
The crane's shadow, for Shadow Shot Sunday, suddenly curves as it hits the side wall of the 80-meter-deep pit.
There is a big machine near the air hose. I think they are starting to bore a tunnel for the future high speed Tel Aviv-Jerusalem train.
This hole will someday be the train station, and it will double as a bomb shelter.
.
The bridge, or at least the top part of it, is for Louis la Vache's Sunday Bridges.

Dueling lines, I love your creativity. Great sabra shot in the previous post too.

PS I'm back, but still horrifically jetlagged.

It may be strange, but I like the images of the cranes.

Happy Sunday!

Hey Harriet said...

Those shadows that you captured in the big hole are very impressive. I really enjoyed your previous posts about sabras too :)

Hope you have a super week ahead Dina!

Very impressive shots! Yet the idea to build something both for a train station and as a bomb shelter is very scary. The fact that we live in a world where we have to be constantly aware of danger.

a lot of the places in Singapore have bomb shelters include individual apartments. I hope you never need to use it as a bomb shelter.

Dina, what a superb post. I enlarged the second photo as large as it would go... How did you take that? So cool...

The mention of the underground train station doubling up as a bomb shelter is a sobering reminder of the war spirit that Israel still lives in. I hope one day the bomb shelter becomes a useless concept.
