The 15th Edition Of JPix!

Welcome to the 15th Edition Of JPix!

Photo courtesy of Sara With No H... wishing you all the best for the future...

Well it is that time again... time for another edition of JPix! This edition is bursting at the seams with wonderful photos for you to have a look at. We have had a few new submitters to JPix this fortnight which is great!

About JPix:
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 and please remember if you do not submit, you most likely will not be included - I only post what is submitted. (you can submit for other people)

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!

Mottel from Letters Of Thought shows us he is not just a talented photographer but indeed has many talents including being a great cook in his post A Lithuanian Summer In Italy VII -Coda del Lituania.

In this post, the last in the series of seven posts, Mottel shares some wonderful photos from the last night of camp and of the journey home.

If you have missed the past installments of this journey, you can catch up on them here: Parts one, two, three, four, five and six of a Lithuanian Summer in Italy, they are all great and certainly worth looking at each of them.

Batya over at Me-Ander shows us she is great at Multi-tasking, and what a great ending to a busy day! Pop over and check out the wedding photos - Mazel Tov!! Weddings mean Presents! and Batya has a few Weddings to go to in the coming weeks.

In another post, Batya claims 'I didn't buy anything'... although I am not sure how she managed!

A Simple Jew presents some beautiful photos taken by Jack Klein in A Hachnosas Sefer Torah In Tsfat. He also shares with us his two most recent Black & White Picture Of The Week - Sunflower and Mixer Attachment, which are as usual simply stunning.

Last year A Simple Jew posted some gorgeous photos taken by his Father in The Photography Of A Simple Jew's Father - once again we are shown where ASJ gets his photography talent from in this new lot of photos from his Father; The Photography Of A Simple Jew's Father - Part II - breathtaking shots!

Willy Wonker comes to Israel??... The Streets Of Jerusalem has some interesting snaps of The Malcha Technology Park Elevator - very cool!

Rafi G from Life In Israel recently went to the Championship game of the Israel Baseball League, he has a great photo post up of the day - We win! We Win! We Win!

He also has a photo post of yesterday's shchita, but be warned, if you have a queasy stomach, then you might want to skip this one.

Now if I was to tell you to go and have a look at a photo of a rock Snoopy the Goon at Simply Jews has posted you would wonder why. Right? Well this isn't just any rock, this is Shiprock at sundown and it really is quite spectacular.

Looks like poor Snoopy needs to have more for lunch in future too, check out his post Another critter.

Planet Israel's Evan always has great photos posted, and this week presents us with Selfish? Moi?, in which he has some impressive shots of Shiloh.

Josh's Photos has posted a beautiful sunset in Caesaria Sunset.

Littlebirdies considers the future musical talent of her two children ZB and SD in her post Flute, looks to me like they have natural talent!

She also shares some great snaps of their outing to the Beach - looks like they had a great time!

Frumhouse from Little Frum House On The Prairie has some pretty photos in her post Rainy Days, go have a look!

Sarah over at Sarah's Images presents us with Phone Pics: Kite Surfers.

After spending the first 21 years of my life in Melbourne, I can't ever remember the sky so blue in winter. Amazing weather! Enjoy!

Israel In Photos shares more great snaps in Images of Israel and Images of Safed, beautiful!

Psychotoddler shares with us his only in Israel experiences in; Only in Israel #1, Only in Israel #2, Only in Israel #3, Only in Israel #4, Only in Israel #5.

Tamara Eden presents us with My Achey Breaky...LEGS and also Yes, This Really is a New Blog Post... which has some very cute photos! :)

Therapydoc has some good pics in his post The 4th Carnival of All Substances-Therefore, Choose. . .

And last but not least, we say good bye to another Jblogger Sara With No H. She shares her final blog thoughts with us in It's been an Experience.

Oh and in case you missed it, I also posted Through The Stormy Clouds a few days back, check it out if you haven't already.

That's it for another fortnight, thanks to all who submitted their posts, I hope you enjoy the round up.

It is about time some new people put their hand up to host an edition of JPix, if you would like to host an edition of JPix you can contact BagelBlogger here.

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

Fishing.... For Submissions!

A couple more photos from our trip. I guess you could say they are fishing... and so am I - for submissions for JPIX! :)

JPix is due up on Thursday and I am hosting! If you have any photo posts you would like included please submit them. If you see any photo posts from other bloggers while you are blog visiting, feel free to submit them too.

I have had a quick browse of the submissions so far and it looks like this edition will be a particularly good one. Besides making sure you submit your photo posts please also check back on Thursday for the JPix round up!

For those who are wondering what JPix is...
"Simply put JPix is a carnival for Jews and their pictures, it doesn't necessarily have to be that 'joyous expression of art' which photography can capture, it doesn't have to be just about photos of Eretz Israel, though they are most welcome, its not even about communicating some deep spiritual meaning in a long photo essay, although that's alright too, its about two things. You're Jewish and you have photos you want to share, wether they be family, historical, artful, funny, quirky its about sharing."

Now I need to get to it and put all the great submissions I have so far together - don't forget to submit if you have a post!

Through The Stormy Clouds

As I mentioned in my last post, I have been really busy working over the last couple of weeks. Part of my work included driving 2 hours on Sunday to deliver a package. Considering once I would get there it would take 10 minutes to drop off the package, I decidnger to take the whole family - we don't go on day trips very often.

It ended up being a really nice trip, the girls were so well behaved in the back seat for 2 hours and I dropped off the package with no problems at all - I didn't even get lost! Earlier on Sunday we had visitors and we didn't get to leave for our trip until 2pm, so we arrived to drop off the package at about 4 pm. At 4pm on a Sunday afternoon there are no shops open or anything like that, so we decided to take the girls down to the forshore to have a look at the boats.

The sun was setting and looked so pretty shimmering on the water, the breeze was getting colder and stronger by the minute, but I did manage to get out of the warm car and take some photos which I have posted some of today and will post a few more over the next couple of days. Enjoy!

Still Around

It would be nice to just go out for a coffee and sit back and relax, but things have been so hectic over the last couple of weeks - hence the lack of blogging. Work, work, work, and no play!

Anyway, with a couple of days off I am hoping to get a few more posts up - we will see what happens.
