Whimsical Windows, Delirious Doors! #139

Welcome back to your favorite little meme!
Hmm, we seem to still be at war here in tiny Israel. But we're doing our best to stick to life as usual, and so: here are some windows and doors for you :)

A couple of months ago we were on our way to my brother in law's house for a birthday celebration. He lives in Jerusalem, in a neighborhood called Kiryat Moshe. Actually - for those of you in the know about Jerusalem and her architecture - he lives almost exactly next door to one of her more recent and quite controversial landmarks. Anyway, I needed to park a bit further up the street than usual, and took the opportunity to grab some Jerusalem photos for you! 

Oh, speak of the devil, there's Mr. Calatrava's bridge now, peeking out from above the buildings. I'm personally a big fan :)

At the time, folks were gearing up for Yom HaAtsma'ut, our Independence Day, but I think that this is a nice photo to post now, as well:
 

I guess that's enough for this week. Come back again next week, I've got some more nice things lined up for you :)

Please play along with us here at Whimsical Windows, Delirious Doors! Just post your photo of a window, door, or anything architectural, link here, and sign up in the widget. Don't forget to visit the other players, checking out architecture from around the world is one of the best parts! Have a wonderful, peaceful and quiet week, everyone!

I love the bridge too, but it is just in a funny place, stuck between buildings.

I ventured out during the last ceasefire and photographed our town's new migunit (portable bomb shelter) which was plopped down next to the supermarket.

Thanks for sharing The Bridge of Strings.

Thank you Toby, these windows are certainly interesting to look at. And I hope they remain just as they appear in your photos in the midst of all that is going on over there. Shalom!
