Meme mishmash

.
Bear with me as I bundle three memes.

Fear not--she is unarmed.

These two are reflecting, in a highly polished and distorted way, the buildings of Jerusalem's Mamilla mall.

For Weekend Reflections.


The hand got into the frame unintentionally.
But now I see it seems to point to the BS on the horse's rump. hmm . . .

We don't often see equines around here, but three horses were tied up under shade trees at our spring down in the valley yesterday.
They wore nice saddles and saddlebags.

Finally, something for Camera-Critters!


First time I have seen the new tram almost empty (well, it WAS just leaving the depot).

The big windows and glass doors make some interesting shadow designs, but this summer we passengers were baking in the sun.
The air-conditioning could not keep pace.
I think the carriages were built in France for a perhaps more merciful French sun.

For Shadow Shot Sunday.

I think you are right, a bit too much glass...

No seats in the tram? Passengers are expected to stand throughout a long journey? Just wondering...


FOR LOVE OF SHADOW

Tell your shadow that you love her,
Spurn your shadow, if you dare.
Keep your shadow out of darkness,
Keep her in the sun’s harsh glare!

Shadows here and here

Oh dear, it puzzles me to no end that with all the design processes people go through they would still fail to adapt design to environment; those big windows in your heat...? Oy vey. And this is totally off the wall, but I don't visualize a lot of horses in your neck of the globe either...? :-D

A very interesting and extremely diverse group of photos! I love how the unarmed woman's arms are resting on the floor at her feet...

Dina said...

Shalom friends!

Magical Mystical Teacher, thanks for the appropriate poem!
There are seats, but my photo happens to show the row of fold-up seats. That area is meant for wheelchairs.

Each of the two carriages can hold 250 sitting and standing passengers.

I wish they would give the trams some pull-down shades like most buses have.

Cheryl said...

The horses are gorgeous. Must have been quite a nice surprise to see them.

I like the dummies picture... It reminds me of the work of Hajime Sorayama, who is the author of those famous images :

feeling comfortable in ones own space, skin ... surely a challenge. looks as if your tram has more space than ours.
please have a good sunday.

Lots of fun! Thanks for visiting me, too. my critters!

Ms. Burrito said...

Beautiful shadow shots.

My shadow shot post, have a lovely weekend!

Jeanette said...

Interesting mannequins. The sun through the glass on the tram does make great shadows. I bet it was a tad bit on the warm side during the summer, but may feel really nice this winter.

Tatjana Parkacheva said...

Interesting and nice post and your photos, too.

Regards and best wishes

Pietro said...

It could well be. Even int he south of France I am sure the heat is nowhere like that you must suffer through.
