Tel Aviv: Some Random Photos

Waterlily

I never get tired of photographing Tel Aviv. Here are some shots I took the day I went to see the Chihuly exhibit. This waterlily was in a fountain near the Arlozoroff station.

Geraniums on the windowsill of one of those big, anonymous office buildings. Photo taken from the balcony of the Litvak Gallery.

A couple glass sculptures (“Janus”) by Swedish glass artist Bertil Vallien, photographed at the Litvak Gallery. I stitched three photos together.

There was a fitness festival, “Active Tel Aviv,” in Rabin Square (we walked from the Litvak Gallery to the port for dinner).

  1. You sure did manage to capture some great shots from your day out and about in Tel Aviv… Love the last one, and the way the building just glows…

      Thanks, FS. It’s a very cool building to photograph and I don’t get many opportunities to do so. I just happened to have a reasonably clear view of it from the parking lot of the bus station.

    I agree with “FS” that last image glows. But my favorite is the water lily. The most beautiful image I have ever seen of a water lily. You should be especially proud of that one.

      Thanks, Pam! I was afraid that maybe that lily picture was a bit over the top — quite saturated. Maybe I can sell it to a yoga studio chain. 🙂
