From the «Blur Aviv» series

“Blur Aviv” is a series of photographs that plays on the feeling of the fuzzy, slightly surreal and hazy reality one can experience in Tel Aviv (and elsewhere). It is a commentary on the hustle and bustle of the big cities – caught in the morning hours, while the city is still asleep or is about to come to life. “Blur Aviv” is communicating the city’s rapid motion in a still image.

Street Gallery August 2013 Part I

When my blog was celebrating 2 years a few posts ago, I promised my readers a little insight into my Street Photography Project that I’ve been having in August.

It’s been a part of a project through the Norwegian photo website Akam.no. I ended up with a lot of photos and eventually I had to split them into two posts. Here’s the first part of the gallery with a selection of Street photos, all shot last month. These are mostly shot in (or near) Tel Aviv. The quality of the images are varying, because they’re shot with different cameras, from moving vehicles, while walking, etc. In my opinion the images that you’ll see in Part II has a better consistency and an over all better quality, but you’ll just have to wait and see. In the mean time, enjoy this gallery:

Graffiti in Tel Aviv. Obviously a spin on the Last Supper of Christ. Can you recognize all the people? Marx, Einstein.. Who else?

Tel Aviv grafitti

Famous Jews: Tel Aviv graffiti

I’m thinking about buying a new DSLR camera. Most likely I’ll stick to Canon.
Any tips from the readers? EOS 5D? 600D? 60D?

An old, slightly out of tune piano, was left on the street and some random guy that was passing by sat down and played on it. All this led to another random guy (me) taking a photo as he was passing by.

I have no idea how the story continued…

The Tel Aviv Beach Promenade

Tel Aviv promenade (known in Hebrew as Ha Tayelet) is a promenade that runs along the Mediterranean seashore in Tel Aviv, Israel. During the time around World War II the all the piss & shit from the city was poured directly into the sea, so bathing was prohibited (and disgusting) and the beach was neglected. At that time you could also find many gambling joints & brothels along the promenade.

Random pictures of TLV

Just some random pictures from Tel Aviv. Trying out the tourist camera Canon Ixus130. Actually I much prefer one of my other cameras where I have manual focus (digital single-lens reflex camera – SLR/DSLR), because then the photographer is more in control of the motive and one can have more diversity.
