Balloons on the bridge cables

.

Hey, who tied those pretty balloons to Jerusalem's Bridge of Strings?!
How?
When?  Why?
What would Calatrava say?
How long did they remain? 
.
I think it was a happy little addition to the all-white bridge that  carries the light rail  up and over a busy intersection.
Pedestrians too can walk across on the bridge. 

I followed the exciting construction that began in 2007,  and then the bridge's festive dedication,  and then trial runs of the tram.
See some of the 18 posts.

This post is for SkyWatch Friday.

Funny to see the colourful balloons so high on the bridge cables. With a blue sky it's so more festive!
