The old and the new

old boat dock on the Hayarkon River, Israel

The old has history, stature and memories - the new only shininess [JMT]


  • This year the dock was replaced by a parking lot booth on the top of the bank. I could not force myself to take a picture of the new even if only to compare it with the beauty of the old.

  • original structure blackandwhite

    This is the complete structure. Would you replace this? Some of you would say yes, but I see history, memories, a link to the past, a man’s life. I was sad to see it go.

      I agree. I will pass a once proud structure that has fallen into disrepair and will ponder the hope and life that was the original vision. How gratifying when someone chooses to reconstruct such a property and imbue it with renewed purpose.
