Writing with Light

Window to the Mediterranean

In 2010 my family and I spent 3 weeks touring Israel. We toured from the Golan Heights in the north to Eilat in the south and everywhere in between. I didn’t have this blog at the time so I thought I would share with you some pictures from this beautiful country.

We were in the old city of Jaffa in Tel Aviv, whose narrow streets are filled with galleries, restaurants and little gifts shops, when we entered this building which we thought led to a gallery. This small space was empty and under renovation. This beautiful window was facing out to the Mediterranean sea with this bicycle leaning against it outside on the balcony. There was a painter inside who allowed me to come and I took advantage and grabbed a few brackets.

  9. So peaceful! I love the way the reflections of the right window hold the shot on the Rt edge. Not easy to hold the exposure right but you’ve managed to control the contrast beautifully. Never been to this part of the world – looking forward to seeing more.
