Trumpeldor Cemetery by night

.

My kind relative who hosted me for the weekend, her apartment overlooks Tel Aviv's historic Trumpeldor Cemetery.
It makes for a pretty quiet neighborhood, except for the frequent jets that come in over the Mediterranean (a block away) and fly over exactly overhead, some with landing gear already down, en route to Ben Gurion Airport.


Only a few plots remain and will go to top VIPs.
Since its founding in 1902, some 5,000 people have been buried there.
Tel Aviv was founded only later, in 1909.

You can see daytime shots of the cemetery and read more about it in my earlier posts:
"So many life stories in a small place" 
and
"Find a grave via SMS"

(Linking to inSPIREd Sunday, where bloggers share their photos of houses of worship and sometimes cemeteries.)

Fine shots. Cemeteries at night always makes a strange impression...

It's really quite interesting at night though.
