Photohunt - Symbolic

The theme for this week's photo hunt is symbolic. This is the outside of  of the Shoah Memorial in Paris, The concrete facing is made into a Star of David patterns.

This is an old post where I have just changed the date. I had a notification that I have filled my Picasa storage limit... off to delete a load of lesser photos methinks!

Thats a very interesting pattern.

Dragonstar said...

I like this very much.

Glad you like it Cherie

Great choice! By the way, when I reached my picsa limit, or came close, I started using photo buckets and flickr. They have a lot of free storage and you just copy the code in when preparing your post. Just a thought. Happy weekend.

I still have lots of free space with Picasa, but started to use flickr. For me it's very convenient. Easily shareable with FB too :)

I must ditto the first commenter.

I didn't even recognize it as the star of David until you pointed it out... then I could see them. Very nice photo!!

Beautiful as well as symbolic.

I guess this notification was accompanied by a courteous invitation to check out Google's storage increase offer... yeah, familiar...

Life Ramblings said...

love the lines and patterns.

Mar said...

Didn't realize that until I read the explanation. Very beautiful.

I use very little storage because I downsize my pictures before posting them. But with another free gmail acct you get storage.. again. Just copy and paste, I guess. Deleting pics from Picasa will delete them from the posts.

Happy weekend, at any rate.

CherryPie said...

It is still an interesting pattern :-)

Annie said...

Very nice. I'd love to see that memorial in person.

Hope you have a fun weekend.

Gemma Wiseman said...

The pattern seems slightly skewed so that the Star of David seems to be leaning forward, symbolic of hope and progress! Just a thought! A great find!

Sue St Clair said...

Excellent choice for the theme!

Gattina said...

nice picture ! pay attention when you delete photos they are also deleted in your posts ! You can buy extra storage for 6 $ per year at Google/Picasa and a lot !! I could never use it up.

Or you could switch to Photobucket.com, which gives unlimited storage for free. So far.

jams o donnell said...

Thanks Alice Audrey. I've set one up now

Great photo. I must go to that memorial in person one day. I went to the Jewish Museum in Paris, that was very interesting.

jams o donnell said...

It is a fitting memorial indeed.

Dani - tkdchick said...

Very clever! This one of those things that if you hadn't said they were the Star of David I don't think I would of seen it!

jams o donnell said...

AH now I look with fresh eyes they could be easy to miss!

Liz said...

Love this shot. Great take on the theme.

Sorry, I'm late. :)

jams o donnell said...

Now worries Liz!
