It’s the second time that I take part in the world’s largest photography competition: Wiki Loves Monuments. Being German, it was reasonable for me in 2011 to take photos somewhere in Germany. I participated in a special event in Middle Hesse where we took with up to a dozen people more than 5’000 photos in one week and I even won the award for the highest amount of uploaded files in Germany! Unfortunately, I could not join such an event this year but I wanted again to be part of a new potential Guinness World Record that we want to achieve again. So I decided to take older photos of monuments I haven’t uploaded to Wikimedia Commons yet.
With these ~350 files I’m so far the top 3 uploader in Israel! Since the contest in Israel runs till Monday, I just have little time to share my sightseeing impressions from this beautiful country, be it Jerusalem or the Sea of Galilee. And I can only encourage you to upload your impressions from Israel too, or take part in next year’s competition around the world![blog post by Martin Rulsch]
