I love shooting at night when the crowds die down. This particular evening it was about 10:30pm when my husband and I returned from dinner. We went to our room and I grabbed my camera and headed out, quickly yelling behind me, “I’ll be back in 1/2 hour.” I think it was after midnight when I finally got back but the beach in Tel Aviv always does that to me. I seem to get lost in the calm, the gentle rolling of the waves.
I wasn’t quite alone though. Different parts of the beach told different stories…the beach restaurant with the bright lights & roaring music; the treasure hunter combing the sand for lost treasure; the backpackers enjoying a bonfire and claiming their real estate for the night and the young couple finding the perfect spot by the lifeguard station to steal away some romantic time alone.

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
