    Posted: 02 May 2018 at 18:13
I was in Tel Aviv for a couple of days with the family, and Shay (Rovhazman) was so kind to drive all the way from his home to Tel Aviv for a mini DM meeting on my last day there. He even took some additional charged batteries for my A99 since I had forgotten my charger . It demonstrates what great and committed members we have on Dyxum!


Although we spent some time to find a place to park his car (and find it back afterwards ) we had some time for a warm, but nice walk and a quick lunch. Obviously I had seen a couple of areas of this nice city already in the days before, and also visited Jerusalem for a day, which will be shown in other threads. Therefore Shay took me to another area "full of character" I hadn't seen yet. Apparently it was the first DM in Israel.

Thanks again for this meeting and your tips and warm welcome in Israel Shay!
You are more than welcome for a return visit in the Netherlands!

Let me kick of this thread with a traditional 'team shot' through some mirrors (Shay at the right).

A99 + Tamron 24-70 USD

More to follow!

Fred, you are too nice! I totally messed up our meeting and we spent more time looking for a parking spot and looking for the car at the end than taking pictures... And the "market" was not a real market and I was not familiar with the streets so we did a random walk around... I felt like the country mouse visiting the big city...

But it was great fun to meet Fred (and his family minus one daughter)! And I am very thankful that Fred was willing to spend several hours from his family trip time with me!

Still didn't go over the photos, but I will do so and post here.

Too nice? How can that be? I remember the good things only:
You spent 3 hours in the car to meet me for a photowalk, offered a nice lunch, and we had the first DM in Israel ever!
I managed to shoot some nice pics and I will post them in a couple of themes:

- some street impressions
- some doors and windows
- some wall decorations
- some from the 'market'
- some modern architecture


Here the first lot (colors may be not perfect since I had to PP them on an temporary and old monitor).

F1 Orange trees on little square


F2 Clothing shop


F3 Under construction


F4 Subway underway (for next visit?)

Our taxidriver back to the airport was a bit worried and angry about this project and surprised to hear that delays and much higher costs are normal in the Netherlands as well

F5 Shay contemplating on a new themed view (or a present for his wife?)


F6 Corner shop Pishunt


F7 Parasols


F8 Cafe Levinsky


F9 Decorated scooter


Some in B&W

F10 Typical Tel Aviv benches


F11 Sunhats

Fred,
Great to see. Very interesting sets of images, and I also like your themed postings.
Tel Aviv has that slightly run-down and seedy sea-side character in parts, but that's contrasted by some spectacular developments along the esplanade overlooking the sea. On top of all that it's a truly international 24 hour city, very vibrant and lively.
It's also one of the best preserved enclaves of Bauhaus architecture, albeit many of those buildings were constructed in the 1930s and later with reinforced concrete, the cement mixed with sand straight from the beach, full of salt that rusted the steel and manifested in 'concrete cancer'. However, quite a few of those historic buildings are being lovingly restored. I guess we'll see some of this in your later architectural post.
Looking forward very much to the next themes, plus some more of Shay's take on it all.
TFS,

Fred, you have amazing eye for seeing the beauty in anything! I still didn't have chance to process my photos, but it seems that you were in a much more beautiful and interesting place than I was, although we were together...

Since our meeting I spent most of my time on the roads and not on the computer... I hope that latet this week I will finally add my photos...

Thanks Shay!

It might well be that I saw more than you did, since it was all new to me, and quite different than may normal environment. I often wonder what tourist are shooting in my own area. .
Also I was maybe in a more relaxed mode than you were after your long drive and the knowledge that you had to be back in time as well. But I trust you will come up with some nice pics as well!

I hope you don't mind that I move on here, since this thread is only from our walk and I still have to do my shots from the other days as well

Time for some 'market shots'

F35 Dates



F36 Shop



F37 Hats



F38 Herbs


F39 Dried peppers?


F40 "10"


F41 'outlier'


F42 Pasta

TFS Fred_S. What a contrast with the recent London DM. Very interesting photos and great themes.

More please, and some from Shay too

That looks like an immensely productive day of photography, Fred. The last three are my absolute favorites - probably with the pasta in the lead (but I am hungry now, no objective judgment possible)

Great work (and waiting for Shay's part)!
