Streets of Jerusalem

By Ayelet_A
Hello again everyone Smile
Time flies by, and believe it or not but university starts this Sunday! Oh dear... I'm about to leave my previous life behind (until the weekend that is), and embark on a new adventure out in the hot, lonely desert, a.k.a Beer-Sheva, the city of my university.
Surrounded by camels and old cars I'm gonna face the real life, adding legs to flies and naming bacterias. Indeed I'm learning Biology.

Fortunately in my new apartment, living with two more confused souls, I'll occasionally have the chance to explore the wonderful invention some refer to as "The internet", you may have heard of it, you may have not - but from time to time, keep your eyes open for I'll be there, documenting my new world Smile

For now, I leave you all with some night shots form a slightly more familiar city named Jerusalem Wink

Have an amazing week!

Nice to hear different opinions.

Andrew - I'm sure luck had little to do with it. More like talent I think Smile

These are beautiful, and particularly V2 with its stronger hints of life moving through the stillness. Good luck with your studies!

V2 rocks big time Ayelet - beautiful light quality and sheen from the wet street and the bluring of the figures adds a sense of mystery. Hey . . . good luck with Uni - go get em gal Wink

Best of luck with your studies!

Not much to choose between these three; probably #2 wins it because the `ghosts' look most integrated.

Beautiful shots Ayelet; great control of the exposure and works well with the lights reflecting off the wet pavement. Quite like the slight shift of composition for #3, but #2 probably my favourite for the extra ghosts Smile
Hope that your new course is going well, although I'm not convinced that fly surgery offers a lucrative career path Wink I will keep my eyes open for a news update.
