Writing with Light

Tel Aviv Arches

I must be going through a Black and White period because I’m really enjoying stripping away colour and letting patterns and graphic elements speak for themselves. Believe it or not I still have images from my Israel trip a year ago that I haven’t processed. This was taken across the street from the beach promenade in Tel Aviv.

I really wish I could remember what this building was. I know it wasn’t a hotel but the arches and repeating patterns just beckoned to be photographed. If anyone can identify this building let me know.

I’m also very excited because I will be heading back to Israel at the end of September for a couple of weeks and looking forward to doing more exploring with my camera.

This image was processed completely in Lightroom 5.

    Love the lines and patterns in this – a great example of what works in B&W 🙂

  5. I can certainly imagine that you haven’t finished processing all the photos you took while you were in Israel. That sort of thing happens to me all the time. I have so many that I left for when I’d be retired… but now I’ve been retired for quite some time, and it doesn’t look like I’ll catch up soon.

    • That’s what happens with digital. We just keep shooting and then the amount of work and images gets away from us…at least it does for me.
