Old City 1   7 comments

Back in Jerusalem and walking through the Old City, we had a taxi driver as our guide and I think he thought that the more he showed us the bigger the tip. We didn’t stop, we ran here, we ran there, and taking photo’s was next to impossible. That is why todays pic’s are processed with Snapseed . Not only is Snapseed a great bit of software for your iPad and iPhone you can now get it for your Mac, it’s so easy to use and it hides any imperfections from taking photo’s on the run. (well thats my excuse). This is a series of Old City photo’s, there will be more tomorrow, You’ve been warned.

This photo was very busy on both sides with rubbish bins and motorbikes, cropping it just wasn’t enough.

This one I took on the run, it was quite dark inside, Snapseed really enhanced the celling and hides the fact it’s slightly out of focus.

Not much processing in this one, just a tint and a large frame. (best looked at on a dark background)

I know this won’t be to everybody’s taste, either way let me know what you think.

Basilica   6 comments


Just a short walk from the Western Wall is the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, also called the Basilica of the Holy Sepulchre and a few other names, inside is the slab on which Jesus was laid after he was crucified, (placing my hand on it sure made the hair on the back of my neck standup),  also the Sepulchre which is said to be the place Jesus was buried. I took a few shots of the Sepulchre (which is allowed) but they are quite grainy, I might post them at a later date. 

For the observant viewer you may have noticed a small ladder perched by the upper window, I overheard part of a story about that ladder and why it is still there, something about a repair job and no one could make up their mind who should do the work, hence it is still there. A bit like my jobs around the house!. If anyone knows the story please let me know and I’ll post about it later. Thanks.
