Class of JSB 2018, half of them

This is my favorite shot out of hundreds of “back to the school” pictures taken this week. It might be due to the hue of complementary colors, but most likely, it’s the content.
They are the half of the senior class. I got to know them pretty well, teaching them history last year. It was not easy, but rewarding.
These young men and women come from very different backgrounds than typical American kids. They all have unique stories to tell. There is no doubt that they are going to succeed in life, both in spirit and character.

2017 JSB Staff

The summer break has come and gone. This week was busy participating and capturing photos/videos of the Teacher Orientation at the school where I volunteer, as a media guru and a teacher, and where our kids attend – Jerusalem School of Bethlehem (JSB).
This is a shot of the whole staff on the last day. But wait! If I am in the picture, who took the photo?
Was the camera on the tripod and activated with a remote? No.
Was a drone used? No.
Well, then how? Any guesses?
I left a hint for sharp-eyed observers!

1973 Dodge Dart Sport 340 4-barrel

Was sorting through some very old pictures and came across this – my FIRST car! – ’73 Dodge Dart Sport 340. I bought it when I was 15, with the money I saved up trapping . It was loud, and it got lousy gas mileage; but it was cool, it was fun. It was my baby. 🙂

Trump Wall Bethlehem

A new graffiti art on the Israel / Bethlehem Barrier wall, about a mile from our apartment. The caption of the second picture reads, “I’m going to build you a brother…”
Is it political or artistic? A lot of both I guess, mixed with a bit of humor.
