Snow in Jerusalem part-2

As we continued to explore Jaffa street we noticed that most of the shops were closed. I guess nobody expected much business on “snow day”. Those that were opened were not that busy and it looked as if the snow and the crazy photographers from Tel Aviv were actually more interesting.  Unable to comprehend the craziness of the street photographers, some offered us tea and shelter from the snow.

At some point we were completely wet, we decided that we needed a break. I wanted a cup of coffee and a chance to dry my camera and lens and also to reload a fresh memory card.
We rushed to the Mahane Yehuda Market that in recent years was invaded by local bohemians that opened small cafes, bars and restaurants in the market area. We found a nice small tavern and sat under the heaters to dry  and enjoyed a nice pint of Oyster Stout (what coffee???). Meanwhile outside, the sun peeked out from the clouds and melted most of the snow…
The market is full of interesting characters and offer great photographic opportunities. We headed to the main open area of the market where human traffic was high and the weather provided us a mixture of rain and snow which promised some great shots.

I really like the people of Jerusalem, there is some goodness and niceness in them that you don’t see much in other big cities anymore. They reminded me of how my home town was like when I was a child. They are very approachable with or without a camera.

    Really like the last photo. Is there another part to this? It still feel inconclusive.

    • This is it Vered…
      We went down to the Old City after that through Ben Yehuda street which is a pedestrian mall but was empty at that time and had some Humus in the Muslim quarter and then headed home.

    We went to shoot a wee tiny flood by the Dead Sea… it was but a trickle when we arrived, after almost getting stuck in the mud with my very unsuitable car… OK then, waiting for the next post.

    Nice work and good writing. Next time (whenever it snows again…) you may want to shoot on your own.
    BTW, it’s funny to read so many comments written in English by Hebrew speakers.

    • Shaul, there are benefits to shoot on your own and also to go with another person.
      I might write something about it… but fr now I’ll just say that when going with another photographer the most important thing is not to be side by side, keep a distance, work your own angle and get together once in a while to grab a coffe or a pint 🙂

    Enjoyed reading. Keep posting interesting stories .
    Also, Shaul must be hallucinating. Hebrew speakers? Where?. 🙂
