In that time I've seen over the last 5 months the carnival grow from strength to strength. I must admit I never thought it would consistly get the quality of attention that it has received from the varying hosts. Every blogger has a different style, and that's something most of us have come to accept. A few bloggers excel in graphics, others in writing prose, some just for raw analytical skill others, otherswell they're just plain readable.
Hosting a JPix certainly challenges the graphic skills somewhat of some hosters, but it has also helps bring forward skills some bloggers haven't previously displayed. Any way getting to the short of it, JPix hosters so far have been a varied bunch in almost every way, there has been quite a deal in variation of displaying Photo's in the JPix carnival.
Yet there has been one quality that has remained constant every hoster has done an exceptional job at hosting JPix the Jewish Photo carnival.
If you'd like to have a go at hosting JPix then don't be shy.
- the Jewish Photo Carnival.

A Jerusalem Moment:Mincha Time
A long summer day is coming to a close. The sun is approaching the western horizon. It doesn't matter if you are at the home or at the office. It's "mincha time". You stop whatever you are doing and you head off to the synagogue. Here is what "mincha time" looks like at in the Sha'arei Chesed neighborhood: Cosmic X shows us A Jerusalem Moment: Mincha Time .
As sunset comes to Jerusalem Cosmic X also shows us Jerusalem Of Gold one of the 'Wolfson Towers' close to sunset.
Cosmic X stumps us with Another Mystery Tree In Jerusalem the answer is worthy of praise, his journeys also take us to The Other Side Of The Bridge .
Muse continued her adventures in Jerusalem after being mistaken for a tourist by an enthusiastic guide, she exlaims I ended up at the Kotel, her day trip the other day provided a wealth of beautiful sights and scenes, and if you check out the next lot of photos the last one will make you end up exclaiming Ahhh, Jerusalem both posts are at me-ander.
ModraY takes us to Gan HaShlosha (Sakhne) posted at Israel In Photos he also takes us to Jaffa, Sabil Abu Nabut , and presents us with the visual feast Images of Israel 2007: Jaffa posted also at Israel In Photos. ModraY takes us to Peace Island on the Border of Israel and Jordan.[More about Peace Island] a place of both hope and despair. Theres some great views of everyday life in Haifa with Haifa, Hadar Hacarmel and Haifa, Wadi Nisnas.
It is with some irony I view the summer scenes shot by ModraY of 'Jerusalem Beach' in Tel Aviv whilst typing with frost bitten fingers on the other side of the world. Aliyah really does look attractive.
Little FrumHouse on the Prairie is visiting Israel and gives us Another Israel Update I hope baby and Dad are feeling better.
