Jerusalem, old and new

View from the Tower of David (the Citadel).
The ramparts of the Citadel in the foreground.
People passing through Jaffa Gate (enlarge the photo to see them).
Continuing to the right of the  gate, the ancient city wall of the Old City.
West of the wall, the new city.
Jerusalem.

What a difference. I never think of Jerusalem as having tall modern buildings, I guess because most photos seem to be of the old city.

Amazing how many people past through these portals in a given day going from one world to the next.

That is a fantastic photo. From outside the wall, one can normally only see walls - not what goes on inside the city. From inside the city, one cannot normally see from the Old to the New, or vice versa.

Brilliant photography

I wonder how much of the new was already there the last time I passed the gate...

Shots of the city from on high always provide an interesting perspective.

What a cool new perspective! It makes all of us seem a little bit smaller, I think :)
Thanks for sharing it at WWDD!

What an unusual view of the old and the new. One I have never seen before but would love to see for myself one day.
