the wall - Tel Aviv by Rikitza
the wall - Tel Aviv
the wall - Tel Aviv - Israel
after many years of of expectancy, last year the works for the "light urban train" have started in Tel Aviv. Since the traffic in Tel Aviv is extremely difficult on the background of very poor transportation in-common and an unbelievable high number of private vehicles, people were quite satisfied (fearing for sure also the "temporary" sufferance) with this decision that has been delayed for about 45 years due to various reasons (the first reason known to me was the Yom Kippur war in 1973). Nevertheless, in the meantime, transportation is worse... on its way of improvement. This huge program, perhaps the greatest ever done in the country, involves several excavations in the heart of the city and shall last a minimum of six years (first estimation). One of the ways to isolate the sight of building sites is to frame them by huge panels building eventually true walls ... Nothing better than this to be used for advertising and street art ...

HaCarmel market in Tel-Aviv Israel on a Friday morning
one of my innocent victims randomly chosen between those persons that I find "interesting"
In this case, I was by myself not less surprised than my subject, as I am pretty sure that I have "been caught" despite the relative distance enabled by the focal distance. My surprise was even a bit greater due to the fact that my silhouette and my own gray hair are identifiable in the glass reflection ... at least for those with sharp eyes.

night, street, rain, people, colors, reflections, big city or in simpler words almost all you might hope for to get the "right" city picture.
I do hope it worked here as well.

I strive quite often to "add something" to my pics such as to bring excitation to other human sensors not only to the eyes. In this case my humble trial was to pass thru a bit of the oriental flavors that I believe the colors might suggest or inspire ...

Morning sounds at Palermo by Rikitza
Morning sounds at Palermo
Morning sounds at Palermo - Italy
Each and every time I am in Italy (this time in Sicily) the perception of living the TRUE LIFE is unavoidable and the atmosphere induced by the movies of the "Neo-Realism" current (50's and early 60's) seems to be omnipresent.
This morning scene, I believe, reproduces IMHO precisely what I have said and I hope not to be the only one beholder who is a receptor of the street noise.

Israel
the famous Egyptian singer was and remained one of the most acclaimed foreign performers in Israel.
During the late 60's and the 70's the single TV channel used to present every Friday afternoon an Arab movie.
In spite of the fact that, at that time, Israel was de facto and de jure in a war situation with virtually all the Arab states (Egypt included until the peace treaty in 1979), the Arab movies and music enjoyed of a great audience and enthusiastic reception. Umm Kulthum and  Farid Al-Atrash (here looking to us from the poster) were and remained the most representative actors and used to be received by the Israeli public with emotion and respect being literally idolized. 
This picture has been taken in a side cafe very near to the "Great Synagogue" in the Allenby street during the late morning hours on a Friday.

Every time when walking in Tel-Aviv with your camera in "stand-by" mode you can bet it's rewarding you eventually by offering the most unexpected situations or images.
The pic I managed to capture in the heart of Tel-Aviv, usually in an over-crowded area , shows a quasi-deserted and isolated place where a young woman finds the needed time to revise her phone-status with an unbelievable calm and tranquility like on a far-away and  isolated island ... and grants me, thus, this unexpected minimalist scene for which I remain her grateful.

street musician in Tel Aviv
Due to his resemblance to the great Bob Marley (and the location of the artist) it inspired inevitably my son to suggest the caption as above referring to Bob's famous song Iron - like a Lion in Zion:

Technically speaking the pic illustrates IMHO one of the best ways to take portrait/street photography using the Great  NYC photograph' Jay Maisel advice to use the 70-300 F4 lens as he does ...

Sardou and friends on a theater scene
Paris - France
One of the great things you are offered in Paris is the rich selection of theater shows. We are never escaping the occasion to enjoy of several theater shows. Between the ones we prefer are typical French comedies as in this case when we have seen "Represailles" by Eric Assous having the great Michel Sardou as protagonist. the audience was enchanted and did not spared any effort to show this to the actors by the end of the show.
Sardou himself is also one of the best French singers. One small example is below:

a tourist walking thru the (overcrowded) Times Square - location that grants you a special feeling and allows for meeting the most various kind of people you could imagine.
I like especially this kind of places and usually I have a good lens with me that helps in catching spontaneous portraits. I do this type of chasing in similar places almost every-time that I get the opportunity; my other preferred locations in this sense remain the Piccadilly Circus in London, the Champs-Elysees in Paris and of-course the down-town of Tel-Aviv.
