That New Hamashbir Letzarchan Deparment Store in Jerusalem

Food for thought... Can you pick out some interesting or surprising things in this picture?



Please answer in the comments, thanks.

If it's not the Estee Lauder ad than it's too small to see and I blew up the photo many times it's original size.

ellen said...

I know. You have a woman's face and a bare shoulder on a poster that has yet to be defaced in Jerusalem. They must have just put it up.

Batya said...

Moriah and ellen, that's one, but there's something else I notice every time I walk by. Let's give you guys until after Havel Havelim comes out on Sunday for someone to see what gets me...

Keep guessing, gang.

The litter?

The Lauder ad's peeling off the window?

The store is empty?

The placement of a tree blocking the entrance when it grows up to be a mighty oak?

Is that draft dodger model Bar Rafaeli in the ad?

Run out of ideas.

Batya said...

Shy, not what I was thinking of. Keep looking, please.

angela said...

Is it the bicycle cable looped over something near the front of the store?

Shy Guy said...

Please don't tell me you see 2 smilies in the upper/lower window combos.

Amihai said...

The security camera watching the entrance AND the big ad ?

Daniel said...

The add is on the inside of the window , but is peeling off anteriorly as if it were on the outside.

Shy Guy said...

We demand answers! We can't sleep till we know!

Hadassa said...

Shalom!
The ad is completely in English and the women is blond-haired blue-eyed and therefore very "un-Israeli"?
The adjoining building is still under construction?
There are residential apartments directly over a department store?

Batya said...

I was sure someone would get it by now! One more try everyone.

Shy Guy said...

Ah, yes. The tree branches distinctly spell out "Allah".

Fatwa issued.

Hadassa said...

Shalom!
OK, I'll risk looking like a total idiot. Are the building bricks slightly askew, all of them, or is the camera angle making them look like that?

Batya said...

the door is chained shut. For security reasons only one door is used. the store was built for better times I guess.

Shy Guy said...

I don't need glasses for anything.

I don't see a chain on the door, even when magnifying the picture.

I see the bike cable Angela already pointed out but it does not appear to be used for chaining the doors.

Appropriately, the Blogger word verification for this post is "fogishy". I demand my money back! :)

Batya said...

Shy, that door is locked. Try it! The store was designed, like the old one, with a couple of main doors and because of security, only one can be used.
