Jerusalem Break

The natural Jerusalem stone of Mamilla mall, the Orthodox Jewish gentleman in traditional black garb, I saw this scene as I was walking by and although it was a bright sunny day immediately envisioned it in black and white.

I have a challenge for you. I’m think of submitting this in a competition but can’t think of a unique title for it. Any suggestions?

Carpets for Sale!

HAPPY CANADA DAY & HAPPY 4TH OF JULY! I hope everyone is enjoying this long weekend and that it’s filled with family, friends, BBQs & lots of fun.

The image below is of a different type of gathering. The streets of Old Jaffa in Tel Aviv are filled with tourists and locals alike. If you’re looking for souvenirs, a suit of amor, a life-size rabbit and of course carpets then you’re in the right place.

I processed this image using my usual workflow of LR & Photoshop then used Topaz Impression and Topaz Texture of its final treatment.

Topaz Impression 2 has just been released by Topaz Labs and I have to say that this plug in and Topaz Texture are 2 of my favourites.

Israel Street Photography – Leaving Carmel Market

I was strolling through the Carmel Market in Tel Aviv when I spotted these two people walking toward me. I waited until they passed, believing that I would have a much more compelling image as they walked away.

Would love to get your opinion on this image. I know its busy, with the parked cars, the buildings and electrical lines but I opted to leave it as is. It’s street photography and I wanted to depict the scene as I saw it. So what do you think? Leave it as is or should I clean

A Stroll Through Chelsea

One of the things I love to do when I’m in New York City is to just walk around and explore different neighbourhoods. I did just that one Sunday afternoon…in Chelsea.
