Following Sidewalks: A Morning Walk Through Ramat Eliyahu

Today’s participant photo blog post comes from Kayci Merritte, a participant in the Yahel Social Change Program. This group is living, learning and volunteering in the Ramat Eliyahu neighborhood of Rishon LeZion for 9 months this year.

I have walked around Ramat Eliyahu countless times, but when I consider the best way to describe what it is like to walk through the neighborhood to someone who hasn’t observed this place, to help him or her envisage it, I find it difficult. I decided to take an early morning walk, when many in the neighborhood hadn’t quite left their homes, to photograph Ramat Eliyahu in an effort to portray what comes to mind when I think of this neighborhood as a built environment.
