Photographer's Note

I have had a couple of free days to just wonder around with my camera, looking for worthy postings... :). Since my favorite wondering partner fell ill, I've constrained myself to the borders of my city - Haifa.
This is the southern end of Haifa bay, a neighborhood called "Bat Galim" ("of the waves"). These sea-side grounds, which everywhere else would have been prime real estate, inhibit a rather a simple, in some parts poor neighborhood, and many of us here are waiting for it to be discovered and developed. Meanwhile, I bring you the "raw" view.
The orange capsules are the cable cars running between Bat Galim and Stella Maris (shall elaborate tomorrow).
Some points in the view:
The breakwaters belong to the Bat Galim beach.
The tall white building is the Technion's (Haifa Tech) Medical School.
The "beached" ship is the Navy Museum.
The anchored ships are waiting to be loaded/ unloaded at Haifa Port. They've been waiting for quite a while now, since there was a longshoreman strike (I will post a better photo of the ships in a few days).

Hope you enjoyed the ride... :)
