Wiki Loves Monuments Contest- Jerusalem

I’ve been meaning to post this for a while. Over sukkot we did a rather fun activity. Wikimedia Israel ran a little contest to get people to submit images of Heritage sites in Israel. I’ve always enjoyed the wiki loves art and wiki loves monuments type of projects and I knew that my daughter enjoys taking photos. I also knew she was a bit competitive so I told her about the contest and asked if she wanted to submit pictures to it. I did tell her we likely wouldn’t win but that lots of people would see the pictures afterwards.

We had a rather fun afternoon taking pictures of various places and I uploaded some of them. Here are some of the pictures from our day of shooting-

We finished off with some ice cream. We had alot of fun and although I’m not sharing all the pictures here, it was an interesting experiment to look at places in a new way as well as to look at patterns and shapes. Maybe we’ll do it again.
