Jolie lumière sur cette grue.
Louis: Il pourrait être la lumière dorée de progrès.
It appears to be a worldwide phenomenon, Louis!
Louis: Has to happen, as old buildings get to be too old or must be carved to fit in the amenities of a modern age.

Well let us hope they're building something civilised Louis rather than more walls or office blocks
Louis: Seems to be blocks of flats, Chris.

Indeed - a fascinating photo!
Louis: Heel bedankt, Philine.
Jaffa must be an up and coming place Louis. Is this where Jaffa oranges are made?
Louis: Jaffa is one of the oldest harbours in the world, from which Tel Aviv grew. The old part is up for rejuvenation. You can read here http://theplate.nationalgeographic.com/2015/05/11/one-mans-quest-to-keep-the-jaffa-orange-alive/ how they are making Jaffa oranges and what happened to them.

Mix and match - perhaps not, Louis
Louis: That crane could be the mixer - then maybe, Lisl smile
The crane as a stairway to heaven.
Louis: It doesn't even reach the clouds, Bill
What a fascinating picture Louis!
Louis: I agree, thank you, Richard.
This is an awesome shot, Louis.
Louis: Thanks a lot, Mary.

I like this one. The crane in the golden light adds to the sinister feel of this picture. I like this a lot!!!
Louis: Thank you, Astrid. The clouds just needed their picture taken. And there was a crane ...
Thanks for that link, Louis - interesting.
Louis: So many people asked about the oranges. When in Israel, there is one thing you see a lot of. Any place providing refreshments, will have a fruit press and a ready stock of oranges and pomegranates to press. Quite nice, but make sure the person you will be buying from keeps the press clean.
Looks like a still out of a movie set. Cool...
Louis: Thank you Jacquelyn. Interesting thought.

Clearly there is light at the end of the tunnel in more ways than one.
Louis: There will be - hopefully, blackdog.
Fascinating light... and you know I love cranes...
