The West, or “Wailing” Wall is a most sacred site in Judaism, and the Temple Mount, which contains the Mosque in the background is one of the most important sites in Islam, as well as Judaism. This is the site of King Solomon’s Temple.
An interesting place indeed!

    dislexic keyboard lol good work

  • LOL Philip, no, no tripod. I was leaning up against a pole with my gorillapod against my chest ( which is pretty normal for me!) I think I panicked a couple of the security guards ;-) – I put the big Mirror lens on at this point too & the images show the notes in the cracks in the wall, which is amazing from this distance with no tripod.
    Don’t tell anyone but there were serious issues with parts of this image, which is why it is a strange shaped crop… I also created a fake “tilt shift” of one of the photos I took, which is kind of fun.

    what ot for guard with automatic weapons lol

  • Indeed! I travel with work. Once I was in Tel Aviv and taking photos of buildings – I am blonde and blue-eyed so I don’t “fit in”. I was challenged by a soldier with an automatic rifle pointed at my head. Not fun!
