Shoot Twenty-one - Simes House II
Lisbon - well done Milt, Tony, Joani, Carol, Michelle, Jim, and Elaine!!
"Simes Ghost of Present"
Back in the Simes House for a little photo fun! With little or no traffic on the upper level and low light, I had the perfect setting for some long exposures. Experimentation is the key here so having a digital camera was critical. I could look at my results and immediately know if I had the desired effect.
All it took was a twenty-second exposure with me standing there for about half of that time. About the fourth or fifth try and I got what I wanted. I did attempt to do this in other rooms but this one came out the best.
Better get out the atlas as this year I will be featuring some of the more famous cities of the world! Here are some interesting facts about one of them. Just what city would I be visiting?
The city is
held sacred by people of three faiths: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. It is
also referred to as the city of gold.
City walls have been declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO.
City is also home to the Church of the Holy Sepulcher.
Muslims, the Noble Sanctuary (the same site as the Har Habayit) is extremely
national museum, the largest museum in the country contains the ‘shrine of the
book’, home to the Dead Sea scrolls.
city is the capital city, and also its largest city in the country.
the Western Wall and the Har Habayit are the two most important sites
of Judaism. The Western Wall was built 2,000 years ago.
