Impressions of Jerusalem – Photos From My Israel Trip

I really had the most amazing time visiting Israel from 8th to 15th April 2016.  Smack in the middle, on the 12th, was my 50th birthday, which was the reason I went over there for.

Apart from Jerusalem, I also visited Bethlehem, The Dead Sea and Tel Aviv, all of which are completely different from the Holy City, so it kind of feels like I had various holidays all rolled into one.

Here are my photos of impressions of Jerusalem, and the full gallery with all the photos I took you can see here on Flickr.

Cats of Jerusalem – My Catty Vacation in Israel

On my trip to Jerusalem last week, I wasn’t prepared how many wonderful kitties I would meet – I almost didn’t miss my own 3 rascals at all (but don’t tell them!).

On the 3rd day of my holiday, I also got the chance to do a bit of volunteering at the JSPCA (Jerusalem Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals), and experience first hand how they work to help the animals over there – and they are really doing an amazing job!

Below are just a few piccies as a taster, but CLICK HERE if you want to see all the cat pictures on Flickr which I took of the street cats and JSPCA cats last week.

Every Photographer’s Dream…

It’s every photographer’s dream to get a shot such as this. And this morning, I managed to shoot this! :)

For the next plane that came along a few minutes later, the sun already stood too high…

Incredible 22° Halo around the Sun

I was so fortunate to witness this amazing phenomenon this morning – photo taken from my balcony.

For those interested, this is called a 22° Halo and it is produced by light interacting with ice crystals in the atmosphere…

Supermoon Lunar Eclipse 28 September 2015

My photos of last night’s supermoon lunar eclipse. I stayed up for it from 1am to 5am, and even though my fibro/RA pain is killing me right now (which was expected) and I’m feeling nauseous and my coordination is out the window, it was oh so worth it! After all, the next total lunar eclipse visible in this part of the world isn’t until January 2019, and the next supermoon eclipse is in 2033 (who knows if we’re even still alive by then, hahah!).

This is rather cool. Two separate photos come together in a strange & interesting meld on my mobile phone.  Top is Lugosi´s back (and Ruby) fused with Spider´s tail below it.

TV Shoot with the Cats Today

After the airline losing the TV team´s camera equipment on Sunday, they finally managed to get a replacement camera sent over this morning, and we did all the filming that was supposed to be done in two days, in ONE day alone, today…. as you can imagine, after 8 hours almost non-stop filming and being on my feet for this, I am totally shattered now – but… it all went well! :)

Lugosi wasn´t too impressed being carted off to my friend Anneke´s house for the “renewal of vows” ceremony, but he still did admirably well, whereas Spider was really good and seemed to quite enjoy all the attention, even though he appeared just slightly nervous.

The film itself will be aired in about 2 months´ time on the UK´s Channel 5, but I´ll post here to let you all know when it will be on when I have the details, and/or post a link to where you can watch it online.

Thanks again to my friends Bernie and Lori for attending as guests, and Anneke for loaning us her beautiful patio for location shooting. And not to forget Sian, Paul and Mark from Doghouse Media, who were fantastic and such great fun to work with! :)
