Contrasting Images

I'm always surprised by what I see when wandering about.

The other day, I had to go through downtown Jerusalem to get a ride to a wedding. I walked up Ben Yehuda Street and was amazed at the carnival atmosphere.

That's right. I didn't have time to stop and record the music, but I think the picture says it all.

Unfortunately, I'm sometimes saddened by what I see. Here are the remains of a building project in Shiloh. I hope they find a more suitable place for dumping than the side of the road.

And that road is not an out of the way spot, it's just across the street from homes, homes with young children and the elderly.
