U.S. Consulate on Agron Road

The Rebbetzin’s Husband has a radiant Haveil Havalim, the blog carnival of the Jewish blogosphere, posted. I thank him for including my Windows of Jerusalem post, which has a detail of the above photo. And for connecting my post to Yom Yerushalayim, Jerusalem Day, which is at the end of this month of Iyar.

Klara correctly identified the building on Agron Road as the U.S. Consulate:

On Agron Street there is a U.S. consulate building, not THE Embassy, but definitely has an American flag there. I have to agree with Batya that the building (stone) and the windows (and trissim, shutters) are common in many older buildings.

An interesting looking place. A very nice photo indeed.

Leora says

Thanks for visiting, Denise. As both Klara and Batya pointed out, a lot of Jerusalem looks like this, so it is indeed a beautiful city. I hope all the new construction doesn't ruin its character.

The late afternoon quality of the light is even more obvious on the whole picture. Lovely shot!

Leora says

"late afternoon quality of the light"
Thank you so much for pointing that out, Ilana-Davita. I am going to think about the time of day aspect as I decide when to take photos. Not that I have a lot of choices with my busy family - work - hobbies balancing lifestyle.

Klara Le Vine says

What I want to know is what you did with all the cars???? :>)

Robin says

Oh for pete's sake, I knew it looked familiar! I went to grad school with the wife of a former consul and I used to go there for study sessions or visits.

It's GORGEOUS on the inside. Beautiful local art all over the place.
