Tel Aviv Beach Promenade

Whether you jogging, strolling, biking, roller blading or walk your dog, the Tel Aviv beach promenade is the place to be.

The Lifeguard Station

I’m probably starting to sound like a broken record but….I’m back. It was another wonderful trip to Israel and while it was wonderful spending the week with my son I didn’t get out and shoot as much as I wanted.

I should probably clarify that…I didn’t come home with 1000 images to process I only came home with about 500 🙂

You probably noticed from my last trip in March that I shot a lot of beach images, specifically kite boarders. The kite boarders aren’t out as much in the summer months as it’s not that windy and the sea is much calmer. I did manage to spend a lot of time on the beach, Tel Aviv has some of the best in the world!

Just in case you missed it, I posted a couple of images to Instagram and Facebook earlier this week (don’t forget to follow me there). Here they are and you can find them in my gallery as well.

Golden Jaffa

I haven’t blogged in close to 2 weeks and what has happened to the world in that time? Tel Aviv, Orlando, Paris! I don’t talk politics on this blog and rarely discuss current work events but this is enough.

I get angry when I hear reports of terrorist attacks; shootings; pledges of destroying a whole country. I ask the same questions over and over…how can people hate so much?….how does one take a life…or 4…or 49 so easily? Innocent human beings who are just going about their lives in a restaurant or nightclub. Once the initial anger subsides I realize that this is exactly the reaction these animals are hoping for.

I’m travelling back to Tel Aviv next month and I will go to the Sarona market and dine at a restaurant as I’ve done in the past. Later this year I hope to travel back to Europe. To my amazing neighbours to the south….I’ll be there in a couple of weeks.

I for one will not stop living. To quote Lin Manuel Miranda’s Tony acceptance speech (which was brilliant by the way)…

We lived through times when hate and fear seemed stronger;
We rise and fall and light from dying embers, remembrances that hope and love last longer
And love is love is love is love is love is love is love is love cannot be killed or swept aside.

It’s time to let in some light!

I thought I would end off the week with another from my sunset kite boarding series. This was taken on Banana Beach in Tel Aviv.

Have a great weekend everyone.

Sunset Ride 2

I hope that all my fellow Canadians had an enjoyable Victoria Day long weekend. The weather was absolutely spectacular in Ontario this weekend and it certainly got me into the summer mindset. While I didn’t spend too much time indoors this weekend I did manage to process a few more images and as promised here’s the 2nd of my Sunset Ride series taken in Tel Aviv at Banana Beach.
