העיר העתיקה, ירושלים,

On this photo one person is obviously ascending, while the group of people in the background are descending. There’s some noise in this photo because I had to shoot at a high ISO in order to capture the scene in the poor light conditions. I didn’t want to remove too much of the noise in the post-processing, because then the image tends to be too soft and smooth.

Did you know that in Hebrew, when one is going to Jerusalem, they use the expression *to ascend to Jerusalem*? לעלות לירושלים
The expression עלייה – Aliyah, used when someone moves to Israel on a permanent basis, is also rooted in the same verb.
