Jerusalem Hills reflected in a notebook

.
While housesitting this month for my neighbor-friends' old (as in, 12th C) house, I took my laptop out on the terrace to see if the wireless signal would come through the thick stone wall.
.
It didn't.
.
But as a compensation, the screen gave a nice reflection of the mountain across the valley.
.
It's to share with James' Weekend Reflections.
.
My notebook computer is getting old and is showing signs of approaching death. This may be the last time you see it. It has served me well.

Shabbat shalom.

I still have my first laptop around, it is a donor: the sandwich of its keyboard works now on another computer and its hard disk is now a portable one!

My laptop is on its way out, too, Dina.

Nothing need be said about a laptop that only lasts fewer than ten years vs. a house built in the 12th century that one can still live in.

Unusual panoramic of Jerusalem, indeed. Well done.

unique! good eye!

Cool shot Dina.

My laptop is now 5 years old and is showing signs of old age too which terrifies me for some reason...

Will you be getting an iPad next? It seems everybody is getting one except us. Isn't a desk top supposed to last longer? On the other hand, my hard drive only lasted a few months this time. Strange. It was under warranty, thank goodness!

Amazing ability to have eyes wide open and to see the small treasures around us. Great reflection.

What a struggle of past, present and future. Wonderful set into scenery.

Using my now already seven year old laptop, I'd like to wish you a good weekend.

I can well imagine that the wireless signal wouldn't penetrate the stone walls... hope you get a new laptop before this one expires! ;-)

Karen said...

Very clever shot, great when enlarged!

A gift of an unexpected reflection, to you from your computer in its last days. Who would have expected that?

I want to live in a 12th century house that still functions well :) Hey... I would like a good 19th century house!

JM said...

Amazing! I would never say it's a reflection.

Suzanne said...

Oh dear, be sure to back up in case it decides to exit this world quickly.

Requiem for a notebook?

the natural image-the mirror of the soul.
thankyou beautiful Dina

Ann said...

I have the same plastic chair as your friend.

Well, a few things here: this photo needs to be enlarged to enjoy that mountain scene on your screen... super catch, Dina! Only a few days ago I was using my laptop to test whether our newly installed cable for internet worked and I noticed what a slug it had become... maybe our laptop souls will meet in laptop heaven. So tell me, who sits your house while you sit in the 12C house of your friends?

Then I hope you get a new computer?:-)
Nice reflection of a beautiful place

Pietro said...

My laptop is 4 years old and has only 1 GB memory, but it works quite well at the moment.

Pietro said...

Beautiful photo, of course!

James said...

Very cool reflection! I also love the thought of such an ancient house. :)
