Street Photography

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.

The Guitar Player

We were walking through the Cardo (Jerusalem’s main street 1500 years ago) and this young Orthodox man was sitting there playing guitar. He wasn’t asking for money, he was just playing a selection go Bob Dylan and Simon & Garfunkal.
