JPix - The 11th Edition!

Welcome to the 11th edition of JPix!

A view of the country near Bantam, Connecticut

JPix is a fortnightly carnival started by BagelBlogger, for Jewish bloggers and the photos they take. So if you're Jewish and you have photos you want to share, whether they be family, historical, art, funny, quirky, whatever, make sure you get them into the next edition of JPix!

Thank you to all the people who have submitted photos/posts and secondly I hope I haven't forgotten anyone!

The photos featured here in this post are just a small sample of what you will see in the bloggers posts - you need to click on the links to see all the photos!

Let's Get Straight Into It!...
No one takes black and white photos like A Simple Jew. He has a special talent and an eye for beauty like no other 'Jblogger photographer'. This fortnight he presents to us two beautiful black and white photo posts 'Winter Shadow' and 'Wrinkles'. I hear he has broken his camera, lets hope he gets a new one real soon!
He has also posted 'More Through The Eyes Of A Space Cadet' - not black and white photos, but an example of ASJ's creativity and talent in taking beautiful colour photographs too.

Muse over at Shiloh Musings shares with us 'Just wondering...'. Have you seen the size of the Arab mansions lately? Or have you seen just how many are being built? Muse wonders just how big it will end up being? And I think that is a really good question!
With a rough start to her trip it seems Muse had a big day in 'South of Jerusalem Is...'.
Make sure you pop over and have a look at all the photos she posted of the day, and while you are there, Muse has another wonderful post 'What a beautiful Land!'. She wonders why anyone would ever want to travel away. Beautiful it is!

Little Frumhouse on The Prairie has some gorgeous snaps posted in ' North Park Village Nature Center' and also 'Montrose Harbor'. If you love stunning scenery and pretty flowers you should really take a look! I love the Harbor photos, very soothing.

Personally, I think Mottel from Letters of Though takes the most breathtaking landscape and scenery photos, and he has done it again with 'White Memorial Photo Essay', photos from his trip to the White Memorial park and also in 'The Farm' which he visited after White Memorial park.
It seems Mottel has been travelling a bit lately, I believe he is staying in 'Litchfield' for a few days.

Sarah over at Sarah's Images presents us with an interesting photo post of 'Still Life: Summer Scent' and also a colourful photo from downtown LA - 'Garment District'.

Seems David over at Temunot is 'Driving his Wife Crazy' after the adventure they went on to return a hire car in Israel!
If you are looking to take on a challenging team in ten pin bowling ...just ask 'Team Linn'! They are defiantly up to the challenge in 'Bowled Over'. Very cute!
David has another beautiful picture in 'No Fancy Title, Just the Kotel' - he's right, it needs no fancy title, the picture speaks for itself.

SoccerDad points out some 'Yerushalayim anamolies' in a great photo post. I am guessing these are photos he took on his recent trip to Israel?

Pity I wasn't quicker in visiting Cosmic X this week, I might have been the winner of this weeks 'Mystery Tree' - it is the first one I have known! Jacob seems to be getting all Cosmic X's competitions right at the moment, he also got the 'Blood And Cola' one right too! Cosmic X also has another photo post - 'Death To Capitalism!', see what it is that Cosmic X is sure the Stock Exchange members would be on the run from!

SWFM has a very calming set of photos posted - 'Beauty and the Beach', make sure you hit play on the piano music too!

Batya at Me-Ander presents us with 'Shavua tov, what's new?' - seems she is as quick as a flash with her camera!
She has also posted a stunning dawn shot in her post 'Gentle Dawn' - really pretty, have a look.

Last of all, don't forget to have a look at the photos I posted this week of the local foreshore and also of my little angel and 'The Fluffy Bunny'.

That's it for the 11th edition of JPix, I hope you have enjoyed it.

If you would like to host an edition on your blog click here to contact BagelBlogger. It is really quite easy and fun to host and I believe a host is needed for the next edition.

And don't forget to submit your photo posts to be in the next edition of JPix!!

muse said...

Absolutely gorgeous!
Thanks for the links.

Soccer Dad said...

That's correct, it was from my recent trip. I hope to get at least one more post out of my photos.


A Simple Jew said...

Thanks for your kind words. I actually bought a nice camera yesterday and hope to get a chance to use it soon.

For the record, the color pictures were not taken by me, but by my friend Space Cadet. He is a Chassidic Jew who has a real artistic soul.

Jacob Da Jew said...

Thanks for hat-tip and for adding me to your lovely blog-roll.
