Welcome to the JPix No 2,
The 2nd Jewish Photo Carnival
Mixing it up!
Want to Host?
Batya from Me-ander and Shiloh Musings is the Host for the next JPix 3,
Chaim from Life of Rubin is the host for JPix 4 .
If anyone has ever done a Haveil Havalim, Kosher Cooking Carnival, or other type of carnival then you'll be the first to agree hosting a carnival is quite a bit of work.
Yet in hosting a carnival you gain many things which aren't immediately obvious.
This isn't a definitive list of the benefits of hosting a carnival, but whilst JPix Carnival is a community carnival, those that host it aren't totally un rewarded.
Welcome to the 2nd JPix
Carnival of Pictures.

Reb Nati from Mystical Paths takes us on a inspiring trip to BchaYordan in Just a Simple Day in the Life of Simple Jews
Right: Winter rains soak the Valley of Shiloh
Seems she's been me-andering around the neighborhood and through rain, hail, thunder and lightening. Batya seems to have gone Snappy mad, taking so many pictures from the International Book Fair, one could think she forgot what book fairs are for, with all the Photos she took.
Above: Signs of late winter are abundant
But considering she's the proud author of Chapter 18 of the new book Hide and Seek which she proudly holds stating I was there! Where were you? we understand her usual large dose enthusiasm
Right: Batya holding the newly released Hide and Seek
Yisrael Medad from My Right Word has a stunning picture of dawn breaking over Shiloh late last year, title Dawn At Shiloh, click on the blogger picture at his blog to see a size picture that does justice to this image.
Yisrael's neighbour has a spectacular almond tree in full blossom, check out Yisrael's blog to see The Blossoming Almond Tree .
Yisrael provided me with another picture Vale of Shiloh which was a large expansive picture of the Shiloh Valley, unfortunately I couldn't find it on My Right Word so I have uploaded it to photo hosting, and by clicking on the small picture you can see it.
It's Tu B'Av at Shiloh,

Evan from Planet Israel talks about the Ateret Cohanim and their attempts at correcting an injustice one house at a time its a great essay with many photos.

Another of Evan's Photos from his blog, Planet Israel worth seeing.
Her thumbs are back as she discovers her new mobile phone doesn't do some things her old phone did. Barely sleeping due to the worry of knowing if her new phone alarm would go off automatically like her old one. A restless sleep, hours fly by, and the new day dawns .

SoccerDad shows us some Snow scenes from this February around the home, and not to far away..
Why am I thinking of T. S. Elliot?
If you think the snow was heavy or cold at SoccerDad's then your not going to believe what YamLive got up to.
Yamlive goes to Parish NY chasing 9ft deep snow!
Thanks to Chaim from Life of Rubin for pointing the weather vane.
I've heard of storm chasing but 9ft deep snow chasing?
They seem to know how to have fun Yamlive,
they were getting down and getting 'groovy'
Ya'aqov from Esser Agaroth pointed out this Jewish blogger, Jewish Nation whom I'm sure a few of you will have never come across. It seems Emanuel is quite a talented if not sporadic photographer. Check out Lost Quarter , which is a brief photoessay of Barcelona's Jewish Quarter.
Its a beautiful photo of the most iridescent greens, the detaill is amazing.
Baleboosteh has a post dealing with the recent heavy rains that her part of Australia recieved. Titled A Drink for the Land its an amazing change from only just recently when she displayed photos showing the drought.
In another series called Early Morning Dew she captures the lace like detasils of fine dew drouplerts hanging from spider webs
Right: Early Morning Dew
In her last series she busts some rather nosey neighbours, who are caught spying!
Busted! Nosey Neighbours Caught Spying!
Family and Friends
A mother in Israel reveals Before and After: A teenage moment , seems the same battles are fought around the world, its good to see some valuable negotiating skills are being fostered.
Above: The Before.
OutofAmmo retells a scary bathroom experience in school and shows us a funny costume which seems to include an element of slapstick. Check it all out here: Costumes and the Haunted Bathroom.
Fudge from MTOCATOTHS presents her advertising project, Oh Loretta , which despite the jocularity, is actually very good, do click on the blogger post and check out the larger image.
It seems the other miniPT Rafiki from Frozen Cusatard ButterBurgers is Still working on that camera therefore doesn't have any photographs, and will hence forth have 'no recollection of adolescent school years'.
He has a pretty cool Video project, but we dont play Fulaxin videos here!
Happy 1st Birthday Lola!
Whilst your at Shabot 6000 check out his new Blog currently underconstruction

Yael from Aliyah! Step-by-Step: Making a Life in Israel
has It's a girl
"Her picture goes up at the pet store and the vets tomorrow in hopes someone might adopt her in the next 3 days. She’s extremely sweet and loving–anyone know anyone who might want…? Right now she is set up with food, water and a litter box and is happily curled up in the rabbit cuddle. I’ll leave you with a picture of her I took when I brought her home:"
Mottels photo of Venezia and World Peace is very evocative of the past gone by, it seems to capture the essence of time passing, as though it is paradoxically a time lapse camera .
In black aand white nuances are seen, a perfect example is A Simple Jews Black and White picture of the Week, Within a Puddle, a beautiful photo, and an evocative title.
Snoopy the Goon from SImply Jews shows us his not the only one feeling cold with Winter misery, wet nuts. Make sure you click on the smaller blogger picture to see the larger more detailed image.
Fun with Photos
So it is with amusement that we view Yid with Lid's submission Mr President, Stop Buying Abbas' Snake Oil
I must admit Bagelblogger enjoys manipulating photos, and one I only did today is a deliberately obscure Miss Piggy.

[#] Submitting Photos for non bloggers!
Not every one has a blog, and due to this some readers generaly miss out when it comes to participating in Carnivals. I had an enquiry related to this and, so in the interest of providing access to other Jews who aren't so computer savy or just plain well don't have blogs, I've established a Photo hosting account , JPixcarnival photo hosting where seperate files of photos can be submitted and displayed on JPix.
Now its quite some work, so if you do have a blog use your blog to display your photos, but if you know some one who would like to share there photos with the greater Jewish community then there is that opition now available.
Don't forget to get in your submissions for the next JPix 3 carnival which will be hosted by the lovely Batya from Shiloh Musings and Me-ander.
Submissions by Sat 10th of March 12pm, Carnival opening on the Monday 12th March
Thank you to all the great Photo posts that have been submitted to JPix 2
