Jerusalem Day, 2011

I suppose this photo could be called “Dancers in Front, Daveners [pray-ers] in Back”. I took a few photos of the Jerusalem Day march.
An animated discussion by the Paratroopers’ Memorial. I’m not sure what these guys were discussing but they seemed to be enjoying themselves.
I love photographing tourists:
Damascus Gate. Pity it was under scaffolding, as it’s the most elaborate of the Old City gates:
Four girls coming through the Damascus Gate. Actually the girls’ route was to the Dung Gate on the other side of the Old City but things got a bit confused by this point.
The Western Wall plaza was really crowded, so we went up the steps to one of the streets overlooking the plaza. I created this panorama from three photos (click to view a larger version on Flickr):
Incidentally, the archaeological site in the foreground of the photo above a newly discovered secondary branch of the Cardo (Roman marketplace). Ancient maps show that the Cardo had several branches, but until recently their location was unknown. A few of the other photos are in my Flickr set.
