Why to stay at home when rainy, windy and gloomy – the Jerusalem’s winter.
And again I interfere in the course of the posts about my short trip to Geneva in October. And again this post about the weather extremely unsuitable for walking. This Friday I planned to stay at home and to develop another roll of 135 BW film, to cook something tasty (for my taste 🙂 and to continue my electric guitar studies, but… when I saw the heavy clouds and checked a forecast for the entire day, I immediately decided to go somewhere. And as usual, Jerusalem is as always the best idea of “somewhere” which can come into my head.
Despite the bad weather traffic jams, very quickly I arrived in Jerusalem and was surprised how empty is it. Even the usually full of the last clients Mahane Yehuda market was empty and almost all the small stores were already closed or in a cleaning process of closing. At first, I exposed 12 frames of expired Fomapan 400 120 film, loaded to my plastic Holga camera. Some multi-exposures, some single, but all of them looked very moody in a viewfinder of the camera. I hope to develop this roll tonight or tomorrow. After this continued with both Ricoh pocket monsters.
This series is a little bit different with a bigger amount of images I put in my regular posts.
Both first images I took from the window of my car, when waited in a red traffic light and the rain still was pouring.
I found a dozens of these shabby by the wind black huge umbrellas.
At times I was hiding under awnings and in hallways of residential buildings, but mostly the timing was lucky for me and i avoided a possibility to get wet.
This group of local tourists – Jerusalem historical tour attenders bravely held on and even tried to light Hanukkah candles in the middle of the market.
Some wet stuff i found during the walk before i desided to go to the local pub to dring beer.
Thank you for standing here untill the end of my story! See you next week in the next post.
