Visions of Jerusalem : Israel

Wrapping up a six months exchange in Florida State I stopped by Jerusalem for a quick visit before heading back to Hong Kong. I grew up in Jerusalem, I know Jerusalem quite well, but I always find something new and exciting and I could probably never really be oblivious to its beauty.

During my visit, I had a chance to visit some of the obvious Jerusalem highlights – the old city, the Machne Yehuda market and the newly renovated Israel Museum.

 

Just to give you a taste of Jerusalem, here are my Nexus 4 mobile quick photography captures that I uploaded to Instagram.

 

Enjoy.
