This is a gate of the old town, it was a key point during the war between Arabs and Israelis and we can see the stones hurt by the shots, a memory of how dangerous can be to live in this sacred place.

Este é mum dos portais da cidade velha, ele foi um ponto chave na guerra entre árabes e israelenses e podemos ver na foto como as marcas de tiros destruíram suas pedras. Isso é uma lembrança de como viver nesta cidade sagrada pode ser perigoso.

Bonjour, cher Jorge,
Vous avez appuyé sur le déclencheur au bon moment, le personnage au premier plan lève la tête pour regarder cette superbe façade, comme je le fais actuellement.
L'ouvrage est prestigieux.

Witaj Jorge!
Nice scene.
Wall makes impression.
Good frame, colors and sharpness.
Well done.
Warm regards.

Ciao Jorge, lovely composition with nice couple on fantastic old gate, fine details, excellent clarity, splendid light and wonderful colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi Jorge
I find this very interesting and give an insight into its history and meaning. The focus on the wall where the bullet holes speak louder than words and somebody need to teach them that violence is a bitter pill which does not cure the evils but worsens it !!!

Good journalistic photo that sends out a powerful message......

I love this, thanks for posting, Bravo!
Best wishes

Hello Jorge,
An interesting photo showing the ancient wall which must have received many scars throughout its long history. This part of the world may never find total peace. The man and the little girl are nice additions to the composition.
Kind regards,

Hola Jorge,

una interesante imagen que nos recuerda el conflicto que se vive en esa zona, me gusta la composición con el hombre y la niña cogidos de la mano, bien visto,

Un saludo,


Hello Jorge,

Your photograph tells us a lot about history: about the style and skill of the artisans and the dangerous result of religious conflict!
I like how the couple are studying the wall. Maybe the older person is explaining to the younger person about the seriousness and danger of wars!
You have placed the focal people well, with a direct link to the archway.

My warm regards,
Bev :-)

Hello Jorge,
Yes, Jerusalem is a volcano waiting to erupt. The reminders of the hostilities are well seen and rendered, TFS!
