Calder and cranes dot the blue sky


Calder and cranes.

Some Jerusalem sky for a change, for SkyWatch Friday.

Calder's "Homage to Jerusalem--Stabile" was installed on the top of Mount Herzl in 1977.
Who dreamed back then that it would someday have to share the hill with a new-fangled TRAM!
Mt. Herzl is the terminus for Jerusalem's light rail; it's where tram meets bus.

From the size of those new cranes, it looks like the Calder will soon be in the shadow of several highrises.

It's kind of a mixed view right now, isn't it?

I like the look of the sculpture. It stands out nicely against that sky.

I've always liked Calder for some odd reason. :-) Blue and red is very cool!

maybe you have seen a new species: "The cranes of progress"?

Calder must have these sculptures around the world. We even have one in Hawaii.
