Keeping watch at the gate

.
Stand back in the corner, inside Jaffa Gate, for half an hour.
Keep your eyes open.
You will see all humanity pass through.

hello beautiful Dina, oh how I love this poetry through light.

I had your permission then to print for my own private use so I think I will go for this one. thankyou!

I was really surprised earlier I put up the google translator bar from the gadget section and wow it translated my page using hebrew script for example and chinese also.actually the script not the sounds.--speaking of beautiful poetry through light.and english sections that I had translated beautifully to french. this is often problematic.yes poetry through light.

shalom love and light.

I must admit it always makes me chuckle to see someone in traditional dress of any kind with a cellphone. (I'm pretty easily amused though LOL.)

And there's all kinds of interesting humanity, I'm sure.

Sometimes, if you're in the mood and have the time 'people watchin' is so gosh darn entertaining. Just watch the world whirl by,

Great find! I've always been a people watcher, and you're right that the Old City is a great place to do it!
I'm completely honored that you're playing along in WWDD - thanks so much!

Ah, the Jaffa Gate. Jerusalem is the center of the earth after all...or so some claim and in a way I agree with them. No wonder all humanity passes through!

Life. Maybe the very essence of a door. Wonderful picture, which speaks a lot. Please have a good Tuesday.

When I am engaged with a photography subject, it seems that time stops. Sometimes, it seems I have stopped breathing. I love to imagine your energy-flow as you enjoyed that half hour of people-watching, and then selected your photograph for this post.

Great phot. So many different sorts of people.

Andrea said...

I do that too, but mostly in airports, and a good writer can already make stories!

All roads do not lead to Rome. All roads lead to Jaffa Gate. Beautiful!
