Careful up there!

.
Oi! Would you trust your co-worker enough to steady your ladder here?
The ladder rests on the slippery slope of Greek Catholic Patriarchate Street, which is just inside Jaffa Gate, in Jerusalem's Old City.
.
Hmm . . . this could be for Monday Doorways.
And if you enlarge the photo and look in the mirror on the Franciscan Book Shop door, you also see a reflection of the photographer, for Weekend Reflections.

I have seen better placed ladders...

Thank you so much Dina for your kind comment :)
Your blog is always such an inspiration for me, even when mine is offline!

Dina said...

VP, yeah. Seeing situations like that, I always am glad it is not MY son up there.

Shalom Olga! Fun to see your happy post about Tel Aviv today. So many things in your poem that I could not write about Jerusalem.

Sara said...

And there you are too! I love shots like these with so much going on. And no, I'd not be climbing up that ladder anytime soon...

Fran said...

Yikes, careful! I immediately recognized the spot... Jaffa Gate was my primary point of entry to the Old City during my first visit. (My second visit had me coming into Damascus Gate more often, including a day when someone got knifed there!)

That sure does look precarious! But if he falls, the guy on the ground is in a great position to catch him, so I think it will be okay. LOL!

Balance, surely a challenge. May time and life treat them all kind.
Please have a good Sunday ahead.

Dina, I've caught myself in some photos this last week in Paris. BTW, I have church friends in your city this week. I wish I could have joined them and perhaps met up with you!

Uuuuuh... that really looks unstable. Then again, it reminds me of Art when he's picking the papaya from the tall tree.

Kara said...

ooh..I think I might rather be the ladder holder than the one on the ladder..however that seems like quite a responsibility...
