Crisp, interesting night-shot, Louis.
Louis: Thank you sir. One of the things, the little bridge camera can do very well.

Great shot, love the scene and the little lights in the far distance. Too bad of the pollution they have there too... the 'Mac'....
Louis: This is one of those signs that says you have passed the Mac, go back 1.5kms. Then you will see the Mac building with a huge 'Kosher' sign next to the brand name. Thanks Astrid.
I quite like the atmosphere Louis! Very nice night shot.
Louis: Quite a nice little street as well, Richard.
Who doesn't like a good market, Louis, right? Even in Tiberias! All these names are bringing back so many memories from Sunday school days!
Louis: This is just a fledgling compared to the markets in places like Nazareth and Jerusalem. I like a good market, but some of these sellers stick like flies to a dog's dropping and a don't like feeling like a dog's dropping. Next problem is that the stuff cost money - okay the credit card can take care of that. Last issue is the weight restrictions of the airlines. I treated myself to Turkish coffee and still have a daily mug of the stuff.
My team are playing Liverpool in the third round of the FA cup tonight. It is on Television so I will be watching!
Louis: Oh well, it was a draw. Some may argue it is as good as a win. Others say it is like kissing your sister.

It all looks so calm and unflustered Louis
Louis: It is calm, the policing in that country makes sure it remains calm.
I love night markets on warm evenings Louis, needless to say, an experience that
Asses us by in Angleland.
Louis: They are nice, even if it was winter at the time. I just wore a light windbreaker, unbuttoned. In Jerusalem, it was wet and cold at times.
Time to shop. Take me home.
Louis: The sun set just before 16:00, with the result that a lot of shopping in the markets and stores happens after dark.
Nice evening market, and I note McDonalds has even got as far as Tiberias!
Louis: This is one of those signs that says you have passed the Mac, go back 1.5kms. Then you will see the Mac building with a huge 'Kosher' sign next to the brand name. Thanks Brian.

I think I would enjoy a look round here, Louis
Louis: I am sure you would, Lisl. Also some nice places to stop for a bite.
Fine night scene, Louis
Louis: Thank you Tom.
Terrific night shot, Louis! I see McDonalds has infiltrated even here... UGH!
Louis: Thank you Elizabeth. Yes and they advertise as kosher.
A great scene captured > (except for seeing that McD sign.)
Louis: Thank you Jacquelyn - the yellow M is a sign of civilisation, although I am not sure if it civilisations past or future.
market night
Louis: True and thank you la griffe de loup
good night life...
