Reflections in a jewelry store window

.
Store window reflections at the ritzy Alrov Mamilla Mall for James' Weekend Reflections.
.
"The walls have ears!"
Or in Hebrew, "Oznaim lakotel."
.
The Old City wall and Jaffa Gate are right across the street from the mall.
.
The old Citadel (or Tower of David) probably never dreamed it would be reflected in a fancy 21st century jewelry store.
.
It does seem like the tower is in a tizzy--or a whirlwind.
.
I had to Google to understand the words on the window.
Apparently the gold jewelry creations in the H. Stern + Grupo Corpo collection are meant to resemble the choreography, costumes, and dancers of the Brazilian dance troupe Grupo Corpo.

That window and its reflection are a great mix across time and space...

Something new, something old. That is what is great with reflections.

It is an amazing amalgam of past and present. You're right, the tower looks as if it's surrounded by chaotic winds.

My thought too - Reflections of ancient times! And people and places known to many who have never visited Israel.

Fascinating.

seeing the first photo, I was thinking: is she dreaming of them, or are they dreaming of her?..

I love the shots, reflecting sofistication mixed with old buildings so symbolics.

You caught nice reflections on that display... I specially enjoy the first one ; the superposition of this ballerina so gracious and the geometrical rudness of the stair is very well saw.

A super series of reflections, Dina. I particularly like the "wall have ears" in the first image... with photographer! :-D

Nice reflections, Dina. The Old City must be so fascinating.

Fashionable vanity vs timeless. Superb.

Great pics. It's almost as if you got a double exposure going on. Plus a self portrait in the first pic.

I love the top reflected photo of you in the jewelry store window! Speaking of jewelry..... I'm thinking of Liz Taylor and all her jewelry today - is that so weird?

Louis la Vache said...

What a fine contrast between then and now, shown as a reflection. Excellent, Dina!

Wonderful reflection and the tower is great!!

My husband wonder if you know of any place in Jerusalem where he can get fossils or replicas of fossils. He is very interested in
creation sience.

Wish you a blessed weekend:-)
