Tel Aviv. Around the Kikar.

by Bernard J Polster August. 25, 2019 220 views

Tel Aviv is a great city to visit and to live in, or, around.

These photos were taken in and around Kikar Ha-Medina in North Tel Aviv, late April, 2019. Kikar is Hebrew for Circle and Ha-Medina is the word for The State. Kikar Ha-Medina is thus, The State Square. Yes, in Hebrew, circle is a square! Is anyone really surprised?

Kikar Ha-Medina was (is?) considered to be the high society shopping area. The area was built before shopping malls became popular in Israel. The Kikar will be undergoing some change and renovation, hoping to bring the luster back to this area of North Tel Aviv.

It still remains a great place to walk around and make some photographs.

As this is my first post, it would be a good time for me to mention that for some of the photographs, I have uploaded both a color and back and white version. There are times when I simply cannot choose.

I welcome any constructive criticism.

Enjoy!

Love 4, 7, 11, 12!  I like the colored versions better than the b&w.  Are you also an oleh chadash?

I really like #25 the ghost photo, and in #7 you captured the light so well!

Hello Heike!
Thank you.
Admittedly, #7 was with some trial and error until I got what I was hoping for.  And a bit of work in Post, of course.
Glad you like Ghost - #25.  That particular photo was more by fluke than by design.  But, I am happy with it just the same.
Thanks again!
