As I was looking through my photos from my recent trip, I remembered that I took a picture of the wailing wall from a staircase above it. I marveled at this photo and didn't quite remember how I got such a great perspective.
That is until I saw the rest of the pictures on the role and realized that this, in fact, was a picture from the Wailing Wall - not in Jerusalem - but at "Mini Israel" outside of Jerusalme - where perfectly recreated miniatures of main sites in location are built. I nice day for the kids.

You almost fooled me... I was impressed with the well aligned people, but I thought there were looking a little stiff. Thanks for sharing.

This is a very special perspective, using a very unique angle. Where did you take it from?
I like the way there are men at the left side, wearing b/w only, while at the right side you can see more colorful clothing, at the women's part. a very very powerful photo, Yoram I like it very much.

Bonne photo dans la mesure ou c'est, à ma connaissance, l'une des rares montrant aussi synthétiquement le "Mur des Lamentations" avec la démonstration que les fidéles en prière semblent respecter un ordre "sui generis" pour s'aligner les uns par rapport aux autres ce que ne montrent pas des photos prisent de plein pied ! Bravo et Merci de cette info !
